The alternator gets 12 volts from the ECU to excite the alternator. More than likely, if the alternator tested good. Check the small blue wire going to the alternator with the key in the on position. You should have at least 12 volts there.
The airbag light is on because there is a sensor that is showing a malfunction. And saying that the airbag is disabled. If anything goes wrong with the airbag circuit then it disables the airbag to keep it from popping out while driving. You will have to get the diagnostics ran to find out what sensor is causing the light.

Instrument lights for 1995 Isuzu rodeo don't work


Since it's highly unlikely all your instrument panel bulbs are blown (that usually only occurs if a faulty alternator puts out excessive voltage), it can be several things.
Have you checked your taillights and brake lights? Reason I say, many vehicles are designed to not illuminate the instrument panel lights if both taillights are out (a safety feature and tell-tale warning to the driver). If the taillights are ok, it may have a bad dimmer resistor for the inst panel lights, presuming the fuse that controls the dash lights is good. The other possibility is a faulty ground connection to the instrument panel circuit board or wire loom.

Chevrolet silverado 2004 airbag sensors reset


The airbag in your vehicle is an important safety device, and the airbag module ensures the proper functioning of your vehicle's air bag. If this module is not functioning properly, your airbag may not deploy during a crash. When there is a malfunction, your airbag module warning light will illuminate on your vehicle's dash. You will need to have the airbag assembly checked out by a qualified mechanic, but once that is done, you can reset the warning light and airbag module unit. If you've never done this type of job before, it should only take you 5 minutes.
    • 1 Open the hood and loosen the retaining nut on the negative cable wire cable clamp using a socket wrench.
    • 2 Slide the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal.
    • 3 Wait 3 to 5 seconds and reconnect the battery terminal. Tighten the retaining nut using a socket wrench. Once the power is restored, the airbag module should be reset.
    • 4 Verify that the module has been reset by turning the ignition key to the "II" position and checking to make sure that the airbag light does not illuminate.

Hy,why my airbag lights come on just when the engine gets warm..i was to the dealer end i dont have any faults but my airbag light in dash comme on when the engine gets warm


Check the charging system. Alternator and battery when the engine is warm. Try to check for errors when the engine is warm. Check for errors in the instrument cluster.

How do I remove the blower motor on a 2005 dodge magnum


From autozone.com CAUTION On vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the airbag system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the airbag system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the airbag system. Failure to take the proper precautions could result in accidental airbag deployment and possible personal injury or death.
  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the instrument panel silencer from the passenger side of the instrument panel, as follows:
    1. Remove the two push-pins that secure the instrument panel silencer to the instrument panel.
    2. Pull the instrument panel silencer rearward to disengage it from the brackets located near the dash panel.
    c. Remove the instrument panel silencer from the vehicle.

3. Disengage the wire harness connector locking tab and disconnect the wire harness connector and wire harness retainers from the blower motor.

4. Remove the four screws that secure the blower motor to the HVAC housing.


5. Remove the blower motor from the HVAC housing.

To install

  1. Position the blower motor into the HVAC housing.
  2. Install the four screws that secure the blower motor to the HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 20 inch lbs. (2.2 Nm).
  3. Attach the wire harness connector to the blower motor and engage the wire harness connector locking tab.
  4. Install the HVAC wire harness retainers onto the blower motor.
  5. Install the instrument panel silencer onto the passenger side of the instrument panel, as follows:
    1. Position the instrument panel silencer into the vehicle.
    2. Install the instrument panel silencer above the brackets located near the dash panel.
    3. Install the two push-pins that secure the instrument panel silencer to the instrument panel.

Instrument panel went dead


Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

Airbag light on instrument panel flashes then stays illuminated


Some vehicles you can disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins and it usually resets a check engine light. But the airbag light is different. This means there is something wrong with the airbag system and it will not go out until maintenance.
