The only safe way is to visit a suitably equipped repair shop.

The light is either telling you that the airbags are faulty and require servicing (will either fail to operate or could detonate without warning), or that they have exceeded their service lifetime and must be replaced. In the latter case, the usual fix is to consult the manufacturer's service bulletins to confirm whether the service life has been extended and to then reset the airbag light for another few years. The cost is usually very low and may even be free if you're having other work done or buying spare parts.

Ignoring, disconnecting or unauthorised DIY bypasses can invalidate or downgrade your car insurance, especially in respect of personal injury.

You dont shut off the light you fix the problem ! that means there is a problem with one of the air bag components and it wont work the air bag itself might need to be replaced they dont last forever try going to the dealer they will be the best people qualified to diagnose the problem

Where s the air bag light fuse


Bottom line is you can't.
Due to the safety factor, I don't know of a way to turn the light off without disconnecting the entire system.
When work is done on the steering wheel the fuse is removed that turns the light on.
You may have to get a shop manual to find the connectors to disconnect the air bag module.
The air bag module which is connected to the body computer requires a different kind of scanner than the engine computer to read it for codes.

Service air bag light is on


take it to the dealer... or check all that junk that may be shoved under the seats if your car has (smart air bags). some newer vehicles have sensors under the seats that can be disturbed when you shove stuff under the front seats. there are hundreds of possible problems when that light comes on. BTW when that light comes on it shuts off your air bag system to prevent an unintended deployment so you are driving with non functioning air bags if that light is staying on. it rechecks itself every few seconds.

I have nissan altima 2007 the air bags light is flashing i need turn off how ican do


If the air bag light is flashing- that means there is problem with your SRS air bag system. It stored a code in the computer and wont turn off untill the problem is fixed or cleared manualy with a scan tool- note if you choose to clear the code and turn off the light with a scan tool- if the problem with the system is still there the computer in your car will notice it and store another code and the light will come right back on. also Note that if the air bag light or SRS light is on while driving that system is shut down and your air bags WILL NOT go off if you get into an accident. (the same rules apply if your ABS- anti lock brake light is on- the ABS system will not work) the most common problem with the Altimas and air bag codes are the clock spring assembly located behind your steering wheel- (not the air bag itself on the steering wheel) but there is a round thing that turns with a wire connected to it. you have to remove the steering wheel to service. Best bet - go somewhere that has a scan tool and read what code the computer stored. It will tell you what part of the system has the problem.

Ford f-150 4x4 2006 air bag light remains on


Yes, you are correct. The air bag warning light is indicating a malfunction of the air bag system has been detected by the air bag control module. The problem could be anything from a sensor defect to a wiring issue.
You can take the truck to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and ask them to scan your truck for trouble codes. They will scan the truck at no charge and report the trouble codes that are present. Write the codes down and respond back, we can begin to diagnose the issue.

2003 VW Jetta air bag light and ABS light stays on


no it wont. in order for the air bag light to go off you must get a VW air bag resetter. they sell for about 45 bucks. it will reset the light and crash data. since your airbag light is on the airbags are locked up. once reset they will work again. anymore questions give me an email... andrewlangner@yahoo.com

It beeps and there is no lights on the dash


make sure your air bag light is operating. if the airbag light is burnt out on the instrument cluster, it will beep an audible tone to let you know there is a problem since there is no working warning light. turn key on (but dont start vehicle) and see if the air bag light comes on and shuts off (its called "prove-out") if it does not come on at all, chances are... the light for air bag warning on cluster is burnt out
