Question about 2007 Toyota Yaris

2 Answers

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 is safety issue and if it is so common why isn't Toyota issuing recalls for this potentially "fatal" problem instead of friggin floor mats. This seems appropriate for a "Class Action Lawsuit".

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

I received a recall letter from Toyota about a month ago. The problem is a cable breaking in the steering column. Toyota will fix it free.

Airbag light stays


The light comes on to indicate that the passenger side airbag is disabled. This occurs when there is weight, but less than 60 pounds on the passengers seat. Removal of the weight should cause the light to go back out.

How do i deactivate srs so i can replace front seatbelts on 2005 yaris


Disconnect the battery negative terminal.
1. Wait at least 90 seconds after the ignition switch is
turned off and the negative (-) terminal cable is
disconnected from the battery before starting the
operation.
(The SRS is equipped with a back-up power source, so
if work is started within 90 seconds of disconnecting
the negative (-) terminal cable of the battery, the SRS
may be deployed).
2. Do not directly expose the steering pad, front
passenger airbag assembly, center airbag sensor
assembly, front airbag sensor, front seat inner belt
assembly, seat position sensor, occupant
classification ECU, front seat side airbag assembly,
side airbag sensor, curtain shield airbag assembly,
rear airbag sensor or front seat outer belt assembly to
hot air or flames.

Passenger airbag light is on, saying the "passenger airbag is off". It stays on all the time. There are no passengers or weight of any kind in the seat. The light even stays on when someone is...


Don't know what year model car you have. Some year models have a switch you can turn the passenger air bag off. Check you owners manual in the dash/controls section and the air bag section

I have a 2007 dodge caliber and the airbag lights on the dash stay on all the time. how do i fix that?


You will have to check the fuse. It could either not be in all the way or be bad. It could also be a part called the clock spring. I would start with checking the fuses first. You aren't refering to the passenger airbag light i suppose right? If so, that has a weight sensor for under 80 lbs, if you have something in the seat it can trigger the light. If you are referring to the driver airbag then try the mentioned solutions. thanks

Srs warning light on


Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.


Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat

(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity2_bing.gif problem.

I DO NOT disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s)

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

The airbag light in dash staying on in my 2004


Under driver and passenger seats are wires that go to seat belt anchors.These are tensioner wires.Unplug the wires from the plug under the seat.clean and replace.Doing this while the ignition is turned off.Then turn ignition back on.In 90% of the time this is your problem.Constant movement of seat causes this or rear passengers kicking plugs off.Good luck phil.

PT Cruiser passenger airbag light and bell go off without reason


HI I may have found y the airbag light goes off and on on pt cruisers. there is a pair of wires that connect to the seat air bag pod, the wires run down the seat and to a connector in th floor. after long in vestigation i found that even thou the wires have a conduit protecting them the wires run under the foam pad and over a steel bar, which caused 1 wire to be cut inside yet there was no tell tale sign from out side the sleeve, it was only when I disconected the battery and then the connector from the airbag and the floor connector removed it and run a meter on the two I found it. when i "pulled" the leads the outer sleeve stretched exposing the fault, the wire had a very clean break in it which was odd but the fault. note that only one wire powers the air bag, the other is a feed to the PCM, hence they are connected at the ends hence not easy to trace and with saftey in mind you must not put meters on the wires while connected to any part of the airbag
