The ECM has detected a fault and thrown a code the only way to reset this is to take it to a shop and have them reset it with a diagnostic scan tool. the scan will also show if you have a faulty sensor for your airbag as well. please rate this solution thanks.

I think paparellar may be talking about the light in the middle of the dash that says "Passenger Air Bag Off." This is designed to stay on unless an adult passenger is sitting in the passenger seat. When there is a passenger, the light is supposed to go out. Sometimes, if the passenger is not sitting upright, the light will still come on-- this may require a bit of squirming on the passenger's part to get the light to go off. I solved the problem by putting a piece of black tape over the stupid light.

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

5 series' of 5 beeps in a row on start up


Check the Air Bag Indicator Light. When you turn the car on it should stay on for 6 seconds and then turn itself off. If a fault is detected in the system operation check, the indicator light will either fail to light, stay on continuously or flash. The flashing may not start until up to 30 seconds after the initial systems check.

If there is a fault in the system AND the air bag indicator light fails to light then an audible tone will alert you- it will be a set of 5 chimes (bells/beeps) five times in a row.

Have the Air Bag serviced and the indicator light bulb changed. Since the dash will be off in order to change the bulb, I would have all of the other dash lights changed at the same time. If one goes out, others will surely follow.

Good luck!

Dash lights


To my knowledge only a lexus dealership can correct the air bag light, also it seems that with the older lexus models that dash lighting is a common issue. I would suggest checking your fuses for loose or burnt out ones, as well as checking for loose wiring in the dash unit itself which a mechanic should be able to diagnose. not sure if that helps at all.
