Hi,i just want to ask about the toyota corolla 2010 model,the car says i must check the AIRBAG what must do to fix it.

take it to a dealer service center and have it checked out
There is a airbag manufacturer that made air bags for a variety of makes that has a plastic section that when the air bag is deployed that plastic section can do damage to the occupants
Mitsubishi is one maker and there are 2 others involved but I cannot find the recall notice to say who the others are

Airbag light on dash--able to flash codes 53, 43, 32... What to these refer to?

53 second row left seatbelt sensor (subfault)
43 third row left frontal stage 3 deployment control (subfault)
32 second row left frontal stage 2 deployment control (subfault)
Yes parts related seatbelt sensor and a collision sensor.
Two questions has this car been in a collision, did the airbags deployed, is the seatbelt not retracting. This is a serious problem if you have a collision there will be no protection

My passenger side airbag deployed on my 1995 Camry. I can't get the dash cover to close. Any suggestions?

Need to take to manufacturer/dealer and/or a private company to have the airbag replaced. Otherwise you need to cut the airbag out and replace the panel on the airbag (unsafe)

How do I remove the horn assembly and air bag on a 2209 corolla. my daughter dropped a quarter in behind there?

Much care needs to be exercised when working on / around the air bag to prevent accidental deployment. For example, an electrostatic discharge from your body can deploy the airbag.

If you're not experienced / comfortable doing jobs like this, I'd suggest taking it to a shop.

The procedure is roughly ::

First disconnect the battery ground (negative) cable and wait 30 minutes before beginning -- this will reduce the probability of deploying the airbag (allows capacitors to completely discharge).

There are 2-3 recessed screws on the back side of the steering wheel -- remove these. The center of the steering wheel should then come off -- if it doesn't check for other screws.

If you need to remove the airbag, the wire leads will have to be unplugged.

You might be able to remove the coin without completely removing the airbag.

Here's a link discussing airbag deactivation ::

You have a problem with the pass seat belt or the wiring to it.P/T stands for pretensioner. when the air bag deploys the seat belts tighten.
Be carful with the seat belt it contains an explosive.

My key is stuck in the ignition and won't come out. THe steering wheel does not lock and so the key will not come out. any suggestions?

Sounds like your shifter mechanism is damaged, this is a problem I have been seeing lately with newer products, the shift interlock is not working, and will require a trip to the dealer, or a really good shop. The shifter will need to be disassembled, and there is a chance of deploying the airbag if not done correctly and the shifter is on the column, so please have it checked out by a professional. You can be seriously hurt in an airbag deployment.
It’s a relay between the shifter to the ignition switch went might have out.
Kindly let us know for any future assistance.

2005 toyota corolla airbag light problem

Sounds like your mechanic installed something per your request. Unfortunately, you have to order the specific part for your vehicle or the light will stay on because the vehicle computer is not detecting a secong airbag.

you will need to disconnect batt and wait 5 min,remove airbag fuse then pump brake pedal.this will depower the airbag system.then unplug the airbag you want to deactivate.hook batt back up,reinstall airbag fuse.with an airbag disconnected the airbag light will be on.
make sure you depower the airbag system before unpluging any airbag,or the airbag may deploy causing severe personal safe.
