Could be a problem with the sensor in the seat. The system thinks someone is sitting in the seat and the seat belt is not fastened.

How deep was the water , would first check connections on drivers seat before assuming its airbag in steering wheel ,seatbelt pretensioners are on same circuit plug will be on framework of seat or close to underside front and normally have yellow wiring disconnect battery for half an hour to discharge systems unplug connectors under seat clean connections reconnect and check fault ,you may need to get fault read and cleared but should go out

2007 Yaris, airbag light on dash on, passenger airbag light "OFF" stays on regardless of anything in seat. Was told this was a common problem, probably a sensor, costing $750 to replace. This...


typical american i assume here ,sue everybody in sight ?? Well the fault is most likely caused by the connector block under the front seats ,make sure their is no rubbish under the front seats and then disconnect the connector and clean the contact pins with a soft B black lead pencil and then try that ,if that doesnt work then remove the seat and clean the pins in the connection on the pyrotechnic attachment at the bottom of the seat belt anchor .This is around 60% or so all the faults i get associated with airbag lights ,dirty connections under the seat or empty coke cans and water bottles pulling the plugs out

Air bag light started coming on /dash constantly


the likely fault is the cables running to the seatbelt pre-tensioners under the drivers or passengers seat in the front of the car.

This may be simply the plug and socket have become seperated from sliding the seat back to clean, a common fault, or the airbag "clockspring" connection unit in the steering wheel has a broken ribbon cable inside the column housing.

To see if its the airbag clockspring, buy a 4 ohm resistor from maplin or radio shack, disconnect the battery on the car, unplug the airbag in the steering wheel and connect the resistor across the 2 contacts in place of the airbag, reconnect the battery, if the light goes out the clockspring is the fault, if not its the SRS system wiring under the seats.

The airbag light came on and stayed on for no reason.


I have the same issue (which comes and goes often).
It is caused by a loose wire connection, used for the drivers side airbag located in the seat.. The connector for mine is located under the front drivers seat. There are a couple of connectors that are connected to a bar under the front of the seat. I don't recall which one is used for the Airbag sensor.

Seat belt indicator


look under the drivers seat there is a plug that may be unplugged or broken this is what tells the light to stay on plug it in or try unplugging it and see what happens, on some of the 200 and up models the seat belt light may have some affect on airbags working properly, I have not found this to be the case on 97 model.
