SOURCE: air bag disabling

Hi Lorraine,

I think it would be far safer for your daughter, to have a seat, even a fold up, that could lock into it's position, when in use, fitted into the rear behind the front seats....I'd also suggest that it is fitted with full harness safety belt....

I don't have a diagram and even if I had one, I would not give it to you.... I cannot understand why anyone would give a letter of authority, to disengage such an important safety device....It is something which may save her life.....

Do you never see the possibility, of carrying anyone else in the vehicle?

I'm sorry if I seem harsh.....I am with the traffic department where I live, and I have attended yesterday....

I don't know the reasons why you have applied for that exemption....All that I can say to you, is leave the air bags working and make sure you drive so that you'll never need the safety that the air bag provides....

I'm sorry if my reaction has upset you, but I wish your daughter and you, all the very best....

Regards Johngee10

SOURCE: Air bag light won't go off

It likely is a bad passenger air bag. Did you try switching it back to off on the switch,and unhooking the battery for 5 minutes.

SOURCE: on a 2004 gmc sierra, service air bag message on

There is no reset,you have to take it to a repair shop and get the codes read to see what is causing the light to come on.Usually just a sensor.When it is repaired the shop can use a scan tool to reset the light.This would be the the only way to reset the light.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Air bag light stays on,how to fix it?

You will need an air bag scanner.some times an air bag light turn on just by miving the front seats back and forward,( loose under seat wires connections,an impact sensor can be demaged;if there is not a major problem, just by resetting the computer the light will disappear;or the scanner will detect the problem. Many auto shops do the check engine and airbag scanning for free,as a customer service. Check your local trusted mechanic; or Auto zone.

Had the seats out of a 1997 318i and on putting them back in found the air bag light is staying on have checked the wire connections and they are fine

Hi, There may have been a wire that you pulled off when you took the seat out. Ground wire. In most newer cars and truck there is a seat sensor that will activate air bag, heater in seat etc...
When you sit down it will turn on all these. Good luck.

Light stays on and warning for airbag service on reader board

If the airbag light stays on after it completes it's "check light" process then there is a fault in the air bag system. It could be anything from a bad sensor (there are 3 of them) to a wire that has become unplugged. This problem should be repaired as soon as possible because the air bags will not deploy in a collision while the warning light is continually on.
