Make sure the pressure (air) source is properly hooked up for air intake, and input. Also, ensure that the unit is electrically hooked up correctly, as well as making sure the airbags themselves have not been punctured. Turn on the unit, and listen by the air bags for air escaping.

Replacing airbags

Remove the negative cable from your car battery before replacing car air bags. Not removing the negative cable could deploy the replacement air bag, causing injury. More car obd2 scanner to maintain car with cheap price.
Deactivate the air bag by removing the air bag fuses. Look in your car owners manual to locate the fuses.
Unscrew steering column paneling and remove the airbag bolts on the back side of the steering wheel. Pull out the airbag until you see the back side and unplug the wires.
Plug the new airbag into the wires and rebolt it back onto the steering wheel. Replace the car steering column panels.
Replace passenger side air bags through the glove box or main dash panels. Remove the glove box by taking off the glove box straps and undoing the hinges. Unplug and unbolt the airbag, slide it out the front of the dash, slide the new air bag in and rewire and rebolt it.
Put the glove box or dash panels back together. Reconnect the fuses in the fuse panel and the negative cable on the car battery and you're finished.

2001 pontiac grand am air bag module reset

Yes!!! You can replace it yourself.(Dont let others fool you into paying extra or telling you otherwise.)
-This is for pontiac grand ams 1999-2005 only.
-There are no frontal airbag impact sensors nor are there belt tensioners.
-The SRS system consists of only the (driver airbag) ,(passanger airbag),and the (airbag control module) in 1999-2005 grand ams.

If you crash/wrecked and airbags deployed you will need.
-Driver and Passanger airbags
-Airbag control module

You can buy cheap airbags from a local junkyard any year from 1999-2005 will fit.
You can also find an airbag control module for cheap at your local junk yard BUT YOU MUST FIND ONE WITH THE SAME (PART NO.) AND (SERV NO.) AS THE ONE YOUR REPLACING.The (part no.) and (serv no.) should be at top left of airbag control module.However it does (Not) have to match numbers under barcode or the numbers at the far bottom right of airbag control module.

After you get both airbags and airbag module
-Disconnect car Battery
-Replace airbags
-Replace airbag module (under passanger seat)
-Double check all connections and connect battery.

Congradulations!Your airbags should be back online.

Notes: Two torx 35 head screws hold the driver airbag, access is through two holes behind steering column.
To remove passanger airbag you have to remove glovebox it uses (7mm)screws.After you remove you will see a pair of (10mm)screws holding airbag.
To remove airbag control module First remove passanger seat 2(15mm).Then after removing you will notice a raises area kinda like a vertical bump.Take a razor blade to your carpet and cut it to explose the module underneath.
The airbag module is held by three screws depending on the year of your car it varies.Most likely 3 (10mm).

My airbag suspencion lowered the back end of my car and won't lift back up again

Most likely if its anything like the old lincolns the airbag/shocks are blown. If this is the original set on this vehicle very good possibility. Best fix is a replacement set or if the coil over option is available much sturdier.

How do you reset air ride suspension in lincoln mark 7

Putting on a car lift without turning off air ride won't affect the system, to reset the air ride system requires a code scanner and plug into port, try calling some auto stores to see if they can do this or have a cheap unit to reset, or take back to garage and fight with them to reset, or go to different garage.

I have a 2004 Ford Focus. My wiper switch is bad. I have a new one and am ready to replace the old one. I really need to know if the airbag is going to be an issue though. I don't want to set it...

the best thing to do is call the dealership and find out the proper procedure for this. to repack an air bag is a few hundred dollars. be safe and call them. ask to speak to ford service. hope this helps you out! GOOD-DAY!

When airbag go down n back could it be the relay for airbag under the hood

When the air bag(s) won't hold air it's usually an indication of a bad air spring. It's a common problem for air ride suspensions such as yours. It's also advisable to replace the bags in pairs, especially if you have original equipment.

I have a 04 cadillac escalade that i unplug the air bag wire by mistake now the air bag light is on haw to reset it

I believe that you will have to take the car in to a dealership or other mechanic to have them reset the code in the computer -- just reconnecting the wire will probably not resolve the issue. If you let the mechanic know what happened, he should be able to reset the error code and resolve the issue in short order -- but he may have to inspect the system first (so that he can be sure it is still working properly and that the light will not come right back on). This should not take long, or cost very much since they likely won't have to replace anything major.
It is unlikely, but possible, that unhooking the airbag wire could have caused a problem with the system that is more major than a quick inspection can fix (these systems are VERY sensitive and are vital to your safety in case of an accident) so they might tell you that you need to replace the airbag itself of some other part in the system ... these are usually expensive to replace, but could save your life in the long run ... so I recommend replacing what they tell you is not working right (though it is your choice -- just keep in mind that the designers of the car have accounted for the airbag in their safety analysis of the vehicle so you could be putting yourself at serious risk by not fixing it). Since the advent of airbags, designers have begun to account for them in their automotive designs and safety specifications ... and they have become a vital part of the vehicle's overall safety rating, so not having a working airbag in a car designed to have one is not the same as driving a car from the age before airbags were invented. Please bare this in mind while making your decision.

On my 1990 ltd cv air bag lights

Airbag lights are a bit more involved of a process. It could be as simple as getting your airbag control module reset (usually about $100-150) or it could be the result of a different problem. Possible causes for an airbag light are: 1) crash data stored in the airbag control module, requiring reset 2) bad clockspring - this sends data to the airbag inflator module 3) other fault in the SRS system. The only way to be sure what the problem may be is to get the system read for code and go from there. The airbag light will stay on regardless of a manual reset by removing the battery cable because the codes are stored in a different memory than standard trouble codes. Since the car checks the airbag system completely once you start, that is why the light won't go off until the data is erased from the airbag system control module. Once you find out what the cause is, getting the necessary parts and installing them would be simple enough. Do not just reset the system, have it scanned for possible codes first. Having an airbag randomly inflate while driving could prove to be problematic.
