Either the sensor in the bumper has lost communication with the airbag module, or the airbag module is bad, or the airbag package itself is damaged somehow.

It means your air bag system has been turned off (disabled). It will not function. You need to take it to a shop that has a scan tool that will check air bag codes. You can try to reset it your self, so that while you are driving & god forbid you get in an accident that it may deploy & help in the accident. Turn ignition key to run (not start) watch for airbag light to go on keep key on till light goes out. Turn key off right away. Count slowly to 5. Turn key on again watch till light goes out turn key off. Count to 5. repeat this procedure total of 3 times. On 4th time leave key on. Watch light will go out & stay out. Turn off key, then start vehicle. If it reset light will be out. Airbag is now reset & system is enabled.

What is the cause of the air bag light being on


When the airbag light, or SRS, light comes on it means that the airbag controller has detected a problem with something in the airbag system and has disabled the airbags. Usually this is due to a problem with and impact sensor on the vehicle. You'll need to take it to a shop and have it diagnosed and you should do so quickly because as long as that light is on, your airbags WILL NOT DEPLOY! Good luck.

Airbag light came on..did this come from a impact


{: ) It is possible, but not always the case. An airbag light on your instrument cluster may mean several things. Usually under normal conditions, an airbag light on warns the driver that the airbag system has detected a fault somewhere in the airbag circuits and need to be checked or fixed, otherwise the airbag protection system may not work properly in the event of collision. It can be wiring or component malfunctions.
Sometimes it can be a deployed component like the seat belt retractors or an SDM, which you may not notice. Your vehicle needs to be checked by a diagnostic scan tool for trouble codes. This way, you can easily determine the status of your airbag system.
If your vehicle did have an impact before that you're not aware of, and no attempts were made to have it repaired despite previous airbag light warnings, well, you can always expect the airbag light to come on.

AIRBAG LIGHT IS ON PROBLEM


Hi.

The airbag light means that a problem with the airbag has been detected and that there is an error code stored in the airbag control module. The code will tell you what is wrong with the airbag. The code can be read at the nearest Lexus dealer, you will be charged a fee of $80.

Sometimes the light can be reset by disconnecting battery for ten minutes. Disconnecting battery will also delete the error codes stored. If the light comes back when you connect back the battery, that means that the problem is still there, and that the airbag control module detected the problem immediately.

Regards.

The airbag dash light comes on and off while driving down the road. Does this mean the airbag can deploy?


An airbag is not likely to falsely deploy. Whenever the light is on it means the airbag system is disabled. However it is never safe driving a vehicle with a malfunctioning airbag system.

Airbag light just started coming on, and goes on and off intermit


When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel

Airbag light stays on, fuses ok.


The airbag light will come on and stay on as long as there is an active code in the system. It will go off when the code goes to stored. Active means, something is malfunctioning right now so we will turn the light on. Stored means, something malfunctioned but is working now so we'll store the code in memory and turn the light back off. You really need to have the codes checked for an accurate diagnosis.

Air bag light stays on


If your airbag light comes on it means its not working. Some of the newer airbag systems have weight sensors under the seats and anything lodged under them can disable the passenger airbag and possibly cause the light to go on. If there are no other symptoms, and nothing impeding the airbags then the car thinks the airbag wont work. If you are concerned for your son's safety, take it to a qualified mechanic and have them check/replace your airbag. Good Luck!

Airbag light keeps coming on then off and on all the time


Hello, The airbag light comes on whenever there is any problem with the safety restraint systems.
This means that while the light is on the AirBag WILL NOT deploy. It could be several things....Electrical short in the Steering wheel (supplies power to Airbag), Seat belt locks (if the computer thinks the seatbelt is not in use it won't deploy the airbag), these are the most likely problems, But it could be bad or loose wiring under the dash (aftermarket Stereo?), or Impact sensors, or the Body control module. Any other lights? When does it come on / go off? Random or predictible pattern? Goods news is the car does not need an airbag to drive ... Good luck , hope that helped..
