Question about 2003 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Got backed into

Someone backed into me yet not hard enought to set off the airbag just hard enough to make a slight crack in me plate frame.. Went to take off and my car would not start. Some came over and gave me a jump and it worked for some reason..went home for few min. went to go leave again and the same thing happened....not starting.
The only screwy thingthat I had noticed after the incodent was that my instument panel light s were all flickery and then everything seemed fine.. But like i said.. Now its not starting again.. Just gives me a click or nothing..

someone told me maybe its a sensor but I dont know..
all i do know is that i have never had one problem with the car,,it is mint. Something so small cause such a malfunction!

He is slightly wrong. There is a fuse that powers the airbag control module. But that is it, there would be a different code if the junction fuse box was the problem to that airbag light.

I was t-boned in my 2005 monte carlo and my air bags did not deploy. Why?

You should be very happy that it did not deploy as that is probably why you are here today to write this question. Airbags will generally only deploy in a severe collision where there is a high probability of serious injury or a fatality. In your case it obviously was not severe enough to seriously hurt you. Be thankful and send the car manufacturer a thank you letter for building a car that helped you survive.

Where is the airbag sensor for the fender on a 95 monte carlo

The sensor consists of a sensing element, normally open switch contacts and a diagnostic resistor. The sensing element closes the switch contacts when the vehicle velocity changes are severe enough to warrant air bag deployment. They are located around the bumpers near the fenders. Look on the framing near the fender. I attached a picture of one.

Back is low on my lincoln town car and it bottoms out on every bump

If it's a 2001, you can bet the airbags have developed cracks and are leaking. Arnott Industries sells replacement airbags that carry a lifetime warranty. They are a little tricky to install, but the kits have instructions and with a regular set of tools, you should be able to handle it.
If you want to see the cracks, jack the car up by the frame so that the back axle drops. You'll see the "cups" that the airbags sit on and surely hundreds of little splits in the rubber.
If you've had this problem a long time, there's a chance that the compressor (under the hood, and behind the drivers side headlight) has worn itself out trying to keep up the pressure and MAY have to be replaced.
There are spring kits the defeat the airbag system entirely, but it's such a great feature on this heavy car that I wouldn't consider making that change.
Hope this helps, or at least gets ya started!

I have a 2001 dodge dakata with v6 3.9 may have a cracked flex plate how hard to fix if i do it and if i drive on it what will go on with it

Well you would need to pull the transmission back far enough to unbolt the plate from the crankshaft.
The plate could crack into several pieces and stop connecting the crank to the torque converter.

Horn won't work

Did you pull the steering wheel off the shaft? If not, you won't be able to tell anything. Sounds like the cable going through has been worn through/broken. Likely wore through until it touched something, which set it "off" but still intact, then your tugging pulled it enough to completely break what little was still intact. Should be a very simple wire splice once the steering wheel is off (that's the hard part).

When I start the truck it says the bag is off. How do you turn it on?

If you are talking about the passenger side, are you setting something slightly heavy on the seat ( i.e. computer bag ) ? If so, this is normal, the seat sensor is registering that something ( someone ) is in the seat, but is not heavy enough to arm the airbag.

Think it is 60# to have the airbag armed with a passenger, this stops the airbag from being armed with a child seat on the seat.

If the airbag is off regardless of weight in the seat, this could be an issue with the seat sensor, and you would need to have it diagnosed by a shop that can access the SRS system ( this is not the typical code scanner ).
