Depends on many factors of the accident. air bags are meant to come out only under certain impacts to avoid accidentaly setting them off when not needed. there are special sensors in your car that measure all sorts of things like how hard the brakes are being applied, vehicle speed and in some newer cars if there is someone sitting in the passenger seats. as long as when you start your car the air bag light briefly lights and goes out the system is functioning as designed. if the light were to stay on it would indicate a problem in the system that would require immediate repair to ensure your and your passengers safety.

It really depends on the type of wreck you were in. Your seat belt being on or off does not have anything to do with whether or not the airbags would be deployed.
If they were not deployed it means that your car will not be labeled as totaled, which is a good thing.

Seatbelts locked after wreck


It is possible that the belt is locked from the crash which activated the reel lock pin. The only way will be to replace the whole unit including the gas container.

Seat belts locked up on VW Polo 2006 model - had accident but air bags did not deploy


Any seat belt problem is covered under a warranty program. However if vehicle was in a wreck this may have triggered the lock up feature of the seat belt.

You will need new seat belts.

2001 pontiac grand am air bag module reset


Yes!!! You can replace it yourself.(Dont let others fool you into paying extra or telling you otherwise.)
-This is for pontiac grand ams 1999-2005 only.
-There are no frontal airbag impact sensors nor are there belt tensioners.
-The SRS system consists of only the (driver airbag) ,(passanger airbag),and the (airbag control module) in 1999-2005 grand ams.

If you crash/wrecked and airbags deployed you will need.
-Driver and Passanger airbags
-Airbag control module

You can buy cheap airbags from a local junkyard any year from 1999-2005 will fit.
You can also find an airbag control module for cheap at your local junk yard BUT YOU MUST FIND ONE WITH THE SAME (PART NO.) AND (SERV NO.) AS THE ONE YOUR REPLACING.The (part no.) and (serv no.) should be at top left of airbag control module.However it does (Not) have to match numbers under barcode or the numbers at the far bottom right of airbag control module.

After you get both airbags and airbag module
-Disconnect car Battery
-Replace airbags
-Replace airbag module (under passanger seat)
-Double check all connections and connect battery.

Congradulations!Your airbags should be back online.

Notes: Two torx 35 head screws hold the driver airbag, access is through two holes behind steering column.
To remove passanger airbag you have to remove glovebox it uses (7mm)screws.After you remove you will see a pair of (10mm)screws holding airbag.
To remove airbag control module First remove passanger seat 2(15mm).Then after removing you will notice a raises area kinda like a vertical bump.Take a razor blade to your carpet and cut it to explose the module underneath.
The airbag module is held by three screws depending on the year of your car it varies.Most likely 3 (10mm).

Pontiac grand am gt '99 horn doesn't work


If you bought the car at a dealership, all saftey related problems should have been repaired before the vehicle is sold, at least thats the law in Canada, If your air bag light is not on, the air bag should work correctly, the air bag module is the center of the steering wheel where the air bag is contained, usually the horn circuit is seprate from this module and is more common for a clock spring contact to cause you issue. The clock spring is the contact point to allow the steering wheel to turn and yet keep contact with all the other steering wheel controls

The air bag light on my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes on and off without reason. I was told by a machanic to get a "blow up belt / seat belt for the driver's side". He said this belt was only...


Not likely that the air bag will deploy without notice, its supposed to be a safety device not a hazard.
the light can mean the air bag(or belt) it may not work, or it is due for servicing, this can sometimes be when they get to 10 years old, if your model has the blow up belt it may mean the belt is out of date, pehaps the mechanic was correct.
You will need a specialist air bag tech, who will check or replace necessary items and restet the warning light.

I bought a pontiac g6 in which it was wrecked and the drivers side air bag deployed. now the seatbelts are locked up what do i need to do to fix it.


There is a mechanism in the seat belt spool that locks the belt in a crash. They can bend the spool and lock the belt so you'll probably have to replace the spool.

Sensors are in bumpers, when the light is on for air bags they are disabled to prevent false deployment. If you have complete ins. coverage the car may be covered.

How do you reset an air bag light in a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE?


The airbag light staying on could be an indication that the abs computer ( located under passenger front seat ). may have gotten wet. These cars usually let water in from the front strut towers. The light staying on indicates a problem with the computer, possible things that could happed:
a: air bag DOES not deploy in an accident.
b: air bag does deploy for no reason whatsoever.

either of those could be bad.

best to have it inspected by a certified abs tech or the dealer
