Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

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 used for this 1999 Jeep. No other year has it. I understand the air bag warning light is important as it can signal that the air bag either does not work or that it may deploy without notice. What to do?

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this can sometimes be when they get to 10 years old, if your model has the blow up belt it may mean the belt is out of date, pehaps the mechanic was correct.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.

since you have a seat belt light on with the air bag, looks like the driver's restrain system is faulty, visit a garage to put it on a diagnostic equipment to confirm the malfunction.Do not Attempt to do it your self.

"air bag" light keeps coming on. goes away when I


Try wiggling the seat belt receptacle on the drivers side. If not you will need to take it to get the air bag codes pulled so we can look at whats going on. Try beeping the horn also. There is a wire that brakes sometimes behind the steering wheel called the clock spring this also works the horn circuit.

AIR BAG LIGHT AND CHIME RINGS PERIODICALLY


I have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee Limited and Had similar problem. Found out that a wire/connection harness had gotten cut under PASSENGER seat.from seats moving back and forth. It's part of the airbag system, it tells airbag system if seatbelt is fastened and if occupant is in seat. Since the wire is broken, it can't report back to air back system and activates the light. try this, hope it helps.

Heated seats are not working but light is on


Sounds like the same problem I had. I brought it to the Jeep dealer and they told me that the heating element in the seat stopped working. They told me that the only way to repair was to take the seat apart and replace the heating element in the seat. Of course they will charge you the standard $80 to tell you this. and then quote you $500 plus to repair. I can't even remember how much, I have decided it was not worth it.

Are you using the seatbelts?
The airbag light is on because there is a problem with the system.
PLEASE do not try to fix the airbag problem yourself.
You could accidently activate the bag and get hurt.
