I have a 1998 chrysler concorde. The airbag light on the dash stays on and my horn doesnt work. How do i fix this without costing me tons of money?


Could be a wiring problem or the clockspring in the steering column.
You would need to pull the steering wheel and test the circuits.

How do I deactivate the drivers airbag on my Nissan Terrano 1997 model. I want to get into the steering wheel to fix the horn contact


Airbags are dangerous if they go off while working on them and they can kill you. I wanted to say that up front before explaining how to get the airbag off. Yours has torx bolts that hold the airbag to the steering wheel. I take no responsibility for your safety so if you have not done work on an airbag before you might want to take it to a shop. WHen I lived in Los Angeles people were stealing airbags and every now and then you would hear of someone getting killed by getting their neck broke when it went off. You have to follow the directions exactly to keep from setting the unit off.

1. disconnect the battery
2. remove the airbag fuse
3. remove the lower knee bolster under the steering wheel
4. wait five minutes from when you removed the fuse and then disconnect the airbag connector to the column. It is a Yellow wire and it is marked.
5. now that the power to the airbag as been discharged you need to remove the two bolts from the back of the wheel to get the airbag off.
6. stay out of the way as in do not have the airbag pointing at you at any time.
7. disconnect the harness and find a safe place, out of the way and set the airbag face up so if it goes off it does not launch anywhere. Most shops have a cage they put them in to keep things safe. Remember this is explosive as in sodium azide and it can kill you and the gas can burn you.
8. installation is the reverse of removal and this is especially true for the connectors and powering the system. Do not hook up the battery of the fuse or the harness prior to installing the airbag and when you hook everything up do the harness, fuse and then the battery. If you disconnect the airbag with power to the system it could go off and you will also set a code with the computer that monitors the airbag system.

Was wrecked need to know how to take out the airbag and replace


This process would very depending on each car. Check the fuse box for the airbag fuse. Have it removed before disassembling the airbag assembly. For the driver side airbag... remove the cover of the driver's wheel to gain acces to the assembly. In some cases you will have to remove the cover of the steering columns. For the passenger side airbag you need to remove the dashboard to gain access to the assembly.

AIRBAG REMOVAL
1. Disconnect and isolate negative battery cable from battery.

2. From the underside of the steering wheel, remove the two screws that secure the driver airbag to the steering wheel armature.
CAUTION: The horn switch and the clockspring pigtails connected to the back of the airbag module are fragile. Do not pull on these wires to disengage them. These must be handled carefully to prevent damage to the horn switch and/or the clockspring assembly.
3. Pull the driver airbag away from the steering wheel enough to access the three electrical connections on the back of the airbag housing.

4. Disconnect the steering wheel wire harness connector for the horn switch from the horn switch feed pigtail wire connector, which is located on the back of the driver airbag housing.

5. The clockspring driver airbag pigtail wire connectors are secured by integral latches to the airbag inflator connector receptacles, which are located on the back of the driver airbag housing. Depress the latches on each side of the connector insulator and pull the insulators straight out from the airbag inflator to disconnect them from the receptacles.

6. Remove the driver airbag from the steering wheel.

7. Reverse procedure to install.

Bmw 5 series 2.3L 2000 england how do i remove airbags from drivers side. i was told i would need a torx 30 to remove two bolts from behind steering wheel. my steering is a m5 wheel, and also how would...


to disable them,unplug the plugs after the battery has been disconnected for 2 minutes to avoid deployment. if you physically want to remove them,that is different,the one on the passenger side is part of the dash,a thin plastic line ruptures upon deployment and the airbag inflates.
the drivers airbag is disabled by the yellow connector at the bottom of the steering column
