Apparently the airbag has caved in because the back panel has failed. If you choose to keep it that way if you will have an accident the passenger airbag will deploy incorrectly and no do its job.
So no, it's not actually dangerous to drive this way, but yes, you should fix it, it's a safety issue.

    Yes, of course: for that all you need to do is to take out the 2 firing wires from the airbag, join and insulate them to prevent fault sensing .

How du you reset the airbag light on a 2005 nissan primera


Depending upon which "airbag light" you see, it's one of two things:
  1. If you are seeing the yellow AIRBAG light on your dashboard, it means that your airbag system is not operating properly, and should be serviced IMMEDIATELY, because it will not protect you in the event of a collision;
  2. If you are seeing the light in the middle of the dashboard that says "PASS. AIR BAG OFF," it means that you have disabled the passenger air bag, and it will not deploy in the event of an accident. Follow the directions in your User Manual.

Airbag fuse


It could be the fuse but is more than likely a fault with some other part of the system. You'll need to scan the system and se wha the fault codes are. When the airbag light is on it won't deploy in an accident so be sure to get it checked asap.

How to rest the air bag light on nissan cefiro 1999


The SRS airbag light kept on because the BCM detects there is a fault in the SRS system and the air bag light is on the system is not working and will not deploy while the accident happened. So it is very dangerous. Then you have to reset your airbag.

While driving the 1999 Plymouth Voyager with the airbag light on, is there a posibility of the bag deploying


When the airbag light is on the airbag system is disabled. The likely hood of an unexpected deployment is slim but still not impossible. Before you start replacing modules have the airbag module scanned for codes. The most common issue on these year vans is the clock spring located behind the steering wheel. Typically the airbag light will come on, the horn will stop working, and the cruise will also stop working. These can fail one at a time or in any combination. Post the codes here once you get them. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Airbag locations


In the steering wheel and passenger side dash.Due to the age of the vehicle probably doesn't have the curtain "side" airbags.The airbags were designed primarily for head on collisions. Here is some useful information to why the may have not deployed courtesy of http://www.asashop.org/autoinc/dec2001/collision.htm
How Air Bags Work To have a frontal (driver or passenger) air bag deploy, certain criteria must be met. One of these criteria is that the frontal impact must be within a 60-degree window, occurring within 30 degrees from the vehicle's centerline. Another key element is that the crash forces are equivalent to a head-on collision with an immovable barrier at 10-15 miles per hour. Because a typical automobile accident only lasts about 0.125 (1/8th) of a second, air bags deploy within 15 to 20ms after the initial crash impact. To create a protective cushion between the occupant and the vehicle's interior, the air bag inflates at speeds up to 200 mph within approximately 30ms after impact. This allows the occupant to contact a fully inflated bag within approximately 45 to 50ms after the initial crash impact. Approximately 100ms after impact the bag deflates.

Bmw 5 series 2.3L 2000 england how do i remove airbags from drivers side. i was told i would need a torx 30 to remove two bolts from behind steering wheel. my steering is a m5 wheel, and also how would...


to disable them,unplug the plugs after the battery has been disconnected for 2 minutes to avoid deployment. if you physically want to remove them,that is different,the one on the passenger side is part of the dash,a thin plastic line ruptures upon deployment and the airbag inflates.
the drivers airbag is disabled by the yellow connector at the bottom of the steering column

How do you reset an air bag light in a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE?


The airbag light staying on could be an indication that the abs computer ( located under passenger front seat ). may have gotten wet. These cars usually let water in from the front strut towers. The light staying on indicates a problem with the computer, possible things that could happed:
a: air bag DOES not deploy in an accident.
b: air bag does deploy for no reason whatsoever.

either of those could be bad.

best to have it inspected by a certified abs tech or the dealer

I guess the cruise control buttons are located on the steering wheel...

You have a bad clockspring (contact reel in the steering wheel), all the mentioned items (wheel mounted cruise buttons, horn buttons, airbag) are run through it.

Where the wheel is able to turn a couple of turns on either side, normal wires could not be setup to withstand this. The clockspring (contact reel) is a flat wire wound up to be able to withstand the rotation.

They are not an item I would recommend replacing by yourself, where airbag systems have a procedure which must be followed to make sure you don't accidentally deploy the bag and cause serious injury.
