Question about 2005 Cadillac STS

Open Question

The "Service Air Bag" Light has been coming on and off for about a month. Brought it to the shop and they could not pin point the problem. In the manuel it indicates that this is a safety issue. We are now into the extended warranty and an adjuster has to come and see the light on before giving the okay to fix it. Has there been problems in other 2005 STS of this nature?

SOURCE: the check air bag light stays on , and a service air bag alert at info center

Sounds like the sensor is tripped due to low pressure in the compressor you have to get the unit charged and the light will go off. Or take it to a auto parts store and have them put their diagnostic code reader on their and have them clear the codes this may fix it as well

SOURCE: Service air bag light on. Limits the car to 90 mph!!!

Your air bags are for when you crash, unless youre driving a custom lowrider. An air suspension system problem doesn't have a light, just a fault code in the computer system and will dispaly as a digital message. You'll need to take it to a shop with the proper equipment for diagnosing air bags in ordeer to have the light turned off.
The shaking is likely your half shafts and can usually be identified simply by examining the dust boots. If they're cracked or broken dirt will get inside and the bearings being quite sensitive and under a lot of 'pressure' will grind themselves into oblivion with small amounts of debris.

SOURCE: my air bag light keeps comin on saying service air

take it to a qualified technician and get it serviced, NEVER attemp any airbag repairs yourself , there is a lot of energy stored in an air bag and can be deadly if accidently set off !!!

I have a 2001 Volvo S40 and the airbag light has been on and won't turn off and I have know idea why?


The (air bag) SRS System has to be diagnosed to answer that

Why was that not done when the check light issue was resolved

Your lucky you had no accidents as the air bag is most likely
turned off,so why have you waited 9 months

You clearly never want to use that repair shop again

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.

SERVICE AIR BAG LITE


Hi,

When the air bag light comes on, this means there is a problem in the restrain system. Unfortunately, there are several sensors/parts that are monitored in the air bag system from an air bag sensor, to a problem in the seat belts and there is no way of knowing "where" the fault lies until you get the "codes" read. You will need to find a shop that has a scan-tool that can read air bag codes, as most local "free" scans or "personal" scanners do not read air bag codes. Most shops charge anywhere from $40 - $65 for this service, but, like I say, it is the only way to know "for sure' where the problem lies, and where to start your diagnostic and repair process.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Locked seat belt elantra 2005 and cut off wire.


First correct the problem before any resetting is done.need to repair the wire (check wire color).disconnect one battery terminal first before anything else.If wire is broken form the connector pin using pointed stiff wire pry off the pin lock up(plastic lock ussually diff color from the connector)pull it off completely and from inside the connector u can see a tiny lock each and every pins.use the pointed wire lift slightly the lock and pull or push the pin out.use solder to join the pin and wire.you may need a diagnostic computer to reset the mil light (malfunction indicator light)

I have a wrecked 2006 PT Cruiser. How do I remove the driver's side airbag to replace?


I assume that the airbag has been deployed,and you do not have a new one as of yet.Get your new one first and that will shine a light on how it goes in.Wife has a 01 PT and it just pushes in on two steel pins that come to a point.The pins have a grove in them that snaps into two retainer clips in the steering wheel.A word of advice...replace the retaining clips in the steering wheel as well.Wife had airbag replaced then months latter was hit from behind.Air bag flew out and rite up side the head.Trust me they are not light.Ended up in rear of car.Don't skimp like the body shop did.

1997 Escort Sdn., airbag light flashes 4 times


Pinpoint Test R: Diagnostic Trouble Code 44 — RH Radiator Primary Crash Front Air Bag Sensor Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly Normal Operation
NOTE: Circuit 618 (BL/W) is grounded to the side of the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor case, and the case is grounded through the bracket to the vehicle at its mounting point.
The air bag diagnostic monitor (14B056) measures the resistance between pin 20 (circuit 618 [BL/W]) and pin 3 (circuit 57M [BK]), the air bag diagnostic monitor reference ground. If the air bag diagnostic monitor measures a difference of more than 2.0 ohms between pin 20 and pin 3, it will flash diagnostic trouble code (DTC) 44.
Possible Causes
High resistance on pin 20 (circuit 618 [BL/W]) to ground can be caused by:
  • A poor connection due to loose mounting, dirt, or corrosion at the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor bracket mounting location.
  • An open or damaged wire in circuit 618 (BL/W) from pin 20 of the air bag diagnostic monitor connector to the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor connector.
  • An open circuit inside the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor.

Air bag waring light came on for no apparent reason


Possible trouble areas are drivers side air bag, spiral cable in column, wiring to the air bag sensor assembly or the sensor assembly its self. Without a competent technician using the proper diag tools it would hard to pin point the problem.

Air bag sensor light on, and stays on.


the air bag light being on is most likely a mal funtion, they shold have not had to mess with the wiring for the air bag, in the old days air bags had an acellarometer on the otter part of the car on the front of each fender if one was disconnected it would cause the light to come on, since yours is a generation 2, I suspect a different problem, since air bagsare explosive I do not recomend you try repairing it but I have a web page where they can trouble shoot it for you for a very reasonable price, they can tell you how to reset the lamp and tell you what code it is but it cost's $20.00 still cheeper than hooking up a scanner at a shop. here is the site http://www.airbagsolutions.com/contact.aspx you will need to fill in the information and then you can call them and they will be able to pin point it for you, when working on air bag systems always disconnect the battery and wait 5 minutes before testing or pulling anything apart as they can hold a charge in the ignigher for up to 5 minutes and use only a digital ohm meter to test wires as a meter with a sweeping arm can detonate the air bag, and at 170 MPH if you in the way your gonna get burned. hope this helps.
