If the air bag light is on, the system has detected a current fault. You could reset it with a scanner but it will return shortly. The system will have to be scanned, the codes pulled and then diagnosed from there. Keep in mind the air bag system is turned off when this light is on.

SOURCE: I have a 04 cadillac

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.

Trying to find out if there is a common problem with the air bag in my 2005 gmc sierra. the service air bag light is on. also trying to find out what the approx. cost at the dealership would be to fix...


Air bags require periodic maintenance, the light means it is due for service or not functioning correctly in which case it will not deploy in an accident. You can take it to any dealer or garage and they can service it and reset the light. no idea on the cost of repair. good-day!

HOW DO YOU RESET AIRBAG LIGHT ON 2004 CADILLAC ESCALADE


The air bag system checks itself every time the ignition is turned on. If the light stays on there is a problem with the system. The car needs to be pluged in to a scan tool to see what is wrong. There is a sensor under the radiator that is the most common. But its cheeper to check the codes than just start buying parts. Post the codes and we can help.

How do i reset the SERVICE RIDE CONTROL message that comes up every time i turn on my truck once i've made sure the shocks and compressor are in good shape


THIS LIGHT IS ON BECAUSE THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE AIR SUSPENSION RIDE CONTROL, IT WILL GO OFF AS SOON AS U REPAIR THAT PROBLEM WHICH IS MOST LIKELY A LEAKING AIR SUSPENSION AIR BAG, THERE IS NO RESET AS THE RIDE CONTROL DOESN''T HAVE A MEMORY AND CAN'T STORE CODES, IT ONLY COMES ON WHEN A PROBLEM IS PRESENT IN REAL TIME.

Air bag light


The airbag system will need to be serviced by the dealership or a body shop that is capable of servicing that vehicle.

You need a special scan tool to access that codes on that vehicle.

The service air bag light is on.


Sometimes the wiring under the passenger seat can become compromised from objects in floor becoming wedged under the seat.May need to be reconnected if possible..Usually if the air bag light remains on , it means the air bag will not engage if needed. Should have the dealer service department check for you.
