The light goes on after so many miles as an indicator that the airbag is supposed to be serviced. On some model vehicles there is a shut off switch under the dash that the dealerships use to turn the light off after servicing. I can't tell you for sure exactly where it is on your truck, or if it is equipped with it, but you might ask the dealership if you can find some really nice guy there that is willing to share the info.

Air bag warning light wont go out after changing airbag on steering whell


You didn't mention a year or model, go generally speaking an airbag light doesn't necessarily mean that the airbag is faulty. On some cars the airbag light also checks the seatbelts, the SRS control unit, associated wiring as well as the crash sensors. Also, on some luxury cars the light also detects steering wheel position sensor.

Error b1034 airbag warning light


This light came on in my car when the alternator went bad. If the airbag system is not getting enough voltage it will show a warning indicator light. Check your battery and alternator to make sure they are putting out enough juice.

Why is the sign ,, passenger airbag off'' showing and how do yo switch it on


Passenger airbag goes off if someone sitting in that seat or items weigh less than a certain amount. Not sure the amount because my daughter weighs 65 pounds and light goes off which means airbag wont deploy for her because it would do more harm then good. My son who teeters between 88 - 92 pounds the lights on at 88 and off at 92. So I'm guessing anything under 90 pounds airbag wont deploy. This is what the dealership told me as well when I bought it. I had daughter with me at purchase time.

Air bag light stays on


If your airbag light comes on it means its not working. Some of the newer airbag systems have weight sensors under the seats and anything lodged under them can disable the passenger airbag and possibly cause the light to go on. If there are no other symptoms, and nothing impeding the airbags then the car thinks the airbag wont work. If you are concerned for your son's safety, take it to a qualified mechanic and have them check/replace your airbag. Good Luck!
