In order to be exact with the diagnosis I would need to know the trouble code that is stored in the vehicle. There are to many issues to list that can make and air bag light come on. The trouble code is essential to pinpointing the failure. I am not sure if the generic scan tools available for use at most automotive supply cant give have the capability of reading the air bag codes but it is worth a try. If they don't work you almost have to either go to a dealership to have the code read or get your hands on the factory scan tool. Sorry ,I could not be more direct with an answer but there are over a hundred different failures that can trigger this light to come on.

You will have to get the car scanned to get the codes.The light is telling you there is a fault in the system. The light being on, also disables your airbag system. Get someone with a VAG-COM to pull the code from the air bag controller and check out whatever it indicates. Your problem might simply be a poor connection or faulty air bag module sensor.-------------At autozone service center is absolutely free to get car scanned.-------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Red warning light is staying on when I switch on and drive my 2001 Grand Vitara dashboard (!) - what do i do?


all the above.

i cant see lamp, why not use photos so we dont need to guess, 1000 warning lamps used.

varies by country too. what lamp logos look like.



what it is , who knows? right, lacking a photo.

the key switch tells the warning box when you remove the key.

that buzz left in is the warning, take key out now.

seem the key inserted switch is stuck but id have to see lamp.

so yes that is switch not a sensor, (but sure one could call a switch a sensor.) and sure wires can fail. and connectors.

sure its electric, is sure is not vacuum.



the warning box can worn head lights left on

or exiting car key left in ignition.

do not fool with the key switch on air bag cars or risk death or broken neck with AIR BAGS.

read the manual, see the 1000 warning there.

and the words, DEFEAT the bags using X procedures first.

do so.

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.

Air bag warning light is on


Hi,
BMWs usually have a peculiar problem with unnecessary warning lights especially as they get older in use. I don't think this is of any hazard except that you need to check the fuse box in the bonnet that has to do with electrical connections.

Air bag warning light staying on checked fuzes under bonnet ok


In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!
