Have to go back under the steering wheel

replace the bags, then sloppy work by whom ever did

Air bag deployment 2006 ford escape


You can still drive the car, just cut the air bag off. There is a lot more in repairing a deployed SRS than just replacing the steering wheel.

My 2004 buick ranier says service air bags the scan says driversside deployment sensor openwhat does this mean and is it real expensive to fix


It means that the ECM thinks the air bag has deployed. Your air bags will not protect you in a crash until this is fixed. I'm not sure if the deployment sensor has a dedicated line on the clockspring ribbon or not. The reason is, that the clockspring is the usual suspect for air bag codes. Since the deployment sensor is not accessible, I would have a professional look at it. Alternatively, some black tape over the air bag light and drive carefully.

Is it safe to drive your car with the air bag light staying on?


If you don't mind being in an accident &
possibly have no air bag deploy

Why wouldn't you have it checked out,
instead of asking a question like that?

There is a lot more to that system than air bags alone

Deployed air bags


My daughter has a "99 Saturn SC1, and she hit a curb and deployed hers. I (Many years as a mechanic) replaced both bags, the computer which is located under the center console, and the "clock spring" located behind the steering wheel to get it all working. (No air bag light on while driving) The steering wheel airbag melted the clock spring when it fired. I purchased these all used on E-Bay.

Says service air bag what does this mean? does this mean the air bag will not work if hit or will it explode on its own?


The car has to be scanned to retrieve the codes to diagnose it....
but the lamp means the system is inoperative until the problem is fixed...(it will not deploy) not to worry, it will not deploy while driving....but on the flipside it will not deploy if you are involved in an accident either......some people prefer them inoperative,some people like the safety of them...choice is yours

The Air bag light came on solid


If you want your air bag to work, you should take the vehicle to a shop for service. This light indicates it probably won't deploy in an accident.
