You need to get the codes and find out what is causing the light to come on first.If you just reset the light and not fix the problem then the light will come back on.It is best to get the code and see if it is just a sensor or wiring and repair the problem then clear the code.This way the light will not come back on.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2000 model year GM airbag light


to turn off the airbag light you will have to take it to a dealer and have the computer reflashed and they will tell you why the light is on. I know on my Chrysler sebring the airbag light was on and I found out from a friend that the connector under the front seat sometimes gets loose and that was the problem with mine.

The ecm codes we read from a 98 pontiac sunfire are throttle position sensor low voltage, egr valve open throttle pintle position, theft deterrent crank signal malfunction, serial communications...


Hi, airbag deployment rarely causing damage to the wiring in the dash. The gauge cluster may of been damaged internally, but this usually shows up right away after repairs are done. I would check the connector on the PCM it is a cam lock design and if its been damaged or not closed properly it can cause crazy things to happen to the gauges. Good luck.

The airbag light, on my 1997 Pontiac Sunfire comes on intermittantly preventing me from getting my inspection sticker. Is there something I can do to repair the problem without taking it to a mechanic?


Unfortunately, there isn't! AIrbag systems are nothing for the home mechanic to play with. They can be dangerous to work on and it's unsafe to just let a problem with them go.
