The light can go on for something relatively inexpensive like a bad impact sensor to something large like a bad air bag or computer. You won't be able to tell until it's scanned and diagnosed. Keep in mind when the air bag light is on or flashing that the system is deactivated and won't deploy the bags in the event of a collision.

Air bag light is blinking


Guys! Are you readying your airbag system after messing around with your truck?

I've seen airbag lights come on for man reasons, faulty sensors, connections, replacing RADIOS! Removing seats!! All sorts of reasons. Personally I bought my QX56 with the airbag light blinking. Drove me crazy for 24 hours till I decided to reset it n see what happened. It takes two minutes to do. No tools.

1. Turn key from off to on. (on meaning all your dash lights are on but your not cranking the motor)

2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.

3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.

My 2001 dodge stratus airbag doesnt work, airbag light is on, and cruise control doesnt work. i was told it was some sort of spring in the steering column and it is expensive to replace.


They are correct. There is a groved ring and spring between your steering wheel and colum. It allows electrical connection to your cruise buttons and air bag. Those springs wear out and no connection can be made. Its called a clock spring. Make sure if you try to replace it your self to take care around the air bag as you could inaverdlty set it off.

I totalled my 1999 chevy s-10 and the airbag in the steering wheel didnt go off and i was wondering how to look and see if it was disabled


Do you want to know if the airbag was disabled or if the sensors were disabled? But basically, if the impact was from the side or rear, the airbag won't deploy. If the impact was from the front and went over the front bumper, again, the airbag wouldn't deploy.

Flashing Airbag Light Prior to Startup


On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident.
The flashing light on your car is telling the answer you need. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.

2002 Hyundai Elantra, airbag warning light stays on


Airbags can be as dangerous and deadly, as easily as they can save a life. The airbag warning light is telling you that your vehicle has no airbags at this time.

If you don't understand the total airbag system, it's best left to a professional. It's worth the expense to have operable airbags, rather than chance a collision without operable airbags. My suggestion to you is to let the dealer fix your system so it is guaranteed.

Airbag light remains on after changing fuse of rear wiper.VW POLO


This is a common occurance in vw's.
In order to turn off the airbag light you need to have a scan tool hooked up to your car because the airbag detected a fault of some sort, or it could be a faulty component in the airbag system itself.
