I would say there was a connector loosened when the panel was removed -- it may appear to be connected, but is not fully seated.

2004 jeep liberty limited 4x4 airbag light goes on when you start the car then goes off for a few seconds then comes back on . both dash light and grab handle lights do this


The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and get it fixed; sometimes, scanner reader could helpfull to know exactly what fault code is stored there. keep in mind that this isnt an OBD codes reader, this is more specific for Airbag Systems.

Also, isnt rare to know that the airbag warning light is indicating the airbag(s) may not be functionig. As it says in the manual, "Ignoring the AIRBAG warning light in your instrument panel could mean you won't have the airbags to protect you, (or your passangers), in a collision...have the airbag system checked right away". Always wear your seatbelt. On 2004 there is a light on the passanger grab bar that indicates the passanger airbag is off. This happens when a child is in the seat to protect the child from the sudden force of an airbag. It can also be fooled by a package or briefcase on the seat. This is normal. When an adult sits on the passanger side the light should go off. This information was an addition to the 2004 manual.

Check THIS ARTICLE for additional details.

Hope this helps.

Drivers airbag removal / horn switch removal 1998 dodge neon


I have a 98 dodge neon and the horn was stuck on all the time. I could not find anyone who could tell me how to remove the cover on the airbag so I could get to the horn touchpad. this is what i did.
first unhook the battery.
remove the 2 screws on the cruise control buttons on each side of the steering wheel.
remove the bolt(s) from both sides of the airbag bracket
unplug the horn wire
unplug the airbag wire CAREFULLY (it's the one in the center).( I left this hooked up)
I did not need to completely remove the air bag from my car, because my horn was stuck on and I just needed to remove the cover.
after I removed the airbag assembly I removed all the screws holding the cover on I removed the inner touch pad so I could fix it.
I reversed the steps to put it back together.. the horn works as it should.

How do I turn off passanger side airbag in a 2005


the key switch is for rearward facing seats for infants/babies upto 9 months.after that age it is best to buy a seat that can be adapted to grow with the child.they are expensive but you can use them in most cars so when you have "little one"you have the seat and when son/daughter have it they have the seat.also,the child should only be in the rear of the car.NEVER in the front.

How can i disable passanger air bag on 1999 z3


It's never a great idea to dis connect any safety feature on a vehicle. But should you wish to do so here are two possible options. BMW may have a key operated switch (usually ignition) to disarm the passanger side airbag (usually in the case of rear facing child seat being fitted) OR if you manually disconnect the airbag (NOT reccommended) you will have to insert a resistance into the passanger bag circuit of equivelant to the air bag that was removed.In order to maintain the self diagnosis check system.

Replace turn signal arm on 2000 vw new beetle


You have to remove the airbag in the steering wheel. Unplug the battery. Place the steering wheel in the outer most lower position. Turn the wheel and in a certain position in the back using a mirrior you'll see holes. With a small screw driver you can unclip the airbag. Turn the wheel the other way to access the other clip. There are 2. Once removed unclip; the harness connector (yellow from the airbag and place it so the vw symbol of the airbag is facing upwards so if it does go off it won't fly upwards. **You should use an antistatic ground on yourself not to deploy the airbag. then use a 12mm triple square drive socket to remove the steering wheel. note the position as it can be placed in several positions. Behind the wheel is the steering angle sensor/ clockspring. DO NOT TURN the clockspring and make sure it stays in it's position when reinstalled or it will break. From there you can remove the trim on the column and access the switches. When reinstalling the airbag VW states to reinstall everything final, close all windows, put the key ON position get out of the car close the door, and only then put the battery back. This is because if the airbag does go off for any reason you will not be in the car when you put the key on. If it does go off the key will already be on and you will be safe. This is the procedure from VW and they state that if damge to other components are affected by key on and battery connected it is still safer than getting an airbag in your face. Just precautionnary. Note the airbag clips are hard to access to remove it. You have to place the flat end of the screw driver on the upper part of the clip and kin of press it downwards. Let me know, but if you are not comfortable or not experienced in airbags do not attempt this yourself.!!!

Hyundai Getz - Passanger airbag or not...


If it says "airbag" on the stering wheel AND on the dash in front of the passenger,then it has a passengers side airbag.
Children are much safer in the back seat in the event of a collision.

make sure you depower the airbag system before unpluging any airbag,or the airbag may deploy causing severe personal injury.work safe.

Steering


Hi

This is a bit of a task, so I hope you're feeling brave! And I'm doing this from memory so bear with me!

First of all, disconnect the battery negative lead and then have a cup of coffee for 20 mins or so to give the airbag a chance to disarm.

Next, remove the upper and lower steering column plastic cowelling, unplug the airbag wiring, and then put the key in the ignition and release the steering lock.

Now, look at the back of the steering wheel around where the steering columnn goes in or thereabouts. You should see a number of bolts or screws which can be accessed one at a time by turning the steering wheel to bring each one into view. These are holding the airbag unit onto the steering wheel.

Undo and remove them all and then VERY CAREFULLY remove the airbag unit from the front of the steering wheel, and carry it with the airbag facing AWAY from you, and put it somwhere safe, FACE UP.

You should now have access to the steering wheel nut and its straight forward from here on, but remember, you will no longer have a drivers airbag, and you may need to have the light put out when the ECU realises you have removed the airbag.

Very best regards
