How do I replace the airbag on my 1998 mitsubishi montero sport

When I boiught the truck the airbags had already been deployed, I have already ordered a replacement for the driver airbag and it doesnt look too difficult, two torx screws that I can see. I have never messed with a passenger airbag before and cant find any instruction. Im well aware I need to disconnect the battery before anything else. Whats next?

Hi,

Unfortunately the horn switch is not serviceable on this vehicle.

The horn switch is built into the air bag assembly and can not be removed safely, nor are service parts available for it even if you could. If there is a problem with the horn switch, the air bag must be replaced.

SOURCE: Spark Plug Replacement

I changed my spark plugs and wires myself two days ago after a quote of around $550 from a local repair shop with welcomed success. It's really high because of the time it takes to do this job. I took my time and did it in about 5 hrs. The answer given for the website is a great source and helped me through a very tedious process. My best advice in addition to that is to have some 1" tape (i used flourescent green for visibility) and a sharpie and mark EVERY STINKING WIRE, HARNESS, PLUGS AND HOSES. Also it helps to make a small diagram of the bolt patterns and varoius lengths and placement of each. I started with numbering the bolts and lettering the wires and harnesses to combat confusion. I hope this helps anyone taking on this hideous task.

SOURCE: HOw to replace spark plug wires on a 1998

Installing New Spark Plug Wires Is Simple, Especially Of One Wire Is Replaced At A Time. Compare The Length Of The Old Wire With The Length Of The New Wire. Replace Each Wire With One Of Equal Length.Make Sure The New Wire Is Fully Attached On The Plug And In The Distributor Or Coil Module.

Spark Plug Wire Replacement Is More Complicated If All The Wires Are Removed At Once.Then You Must Use The Engine Firing Order And Cylinder Numbers To Route Each Wire Correctly.

Airbag ligth dodge grand caravan 2007


You cannot remove it unless you replace the airbag. I have the same thing on my drivers airbag. You will still pass inspection with the drivers airbag not working. To get the airbag replace, you are looking at about 3 grand, I just put a dark sticker over my airbag deployed light because I got tired of looking at it The airbag will not cause other problems for you. Just cover up the light and forget about it.

Locate airbag sensor


Many are mounted to the floor board under center counsel between front seats. If your airbag has been tripped you must replaces this module. They're hard to order new but I've had good success reusing from junk yard cars that haven't had bag deployed. Warning do not mess with airbag system until battery has been disconnected for at least 2 hours. I disconnect over night. These modules hold a charge with capacitors so it can activate in an accident even if battery cable is severed before bags are deployed. You must give capacitors time to discharge on their own or risk setting off the airbag by working with this system to soon. Of course this warning is only for working on systems that haven't already been set off or deployed. ie when reassembling system.

Where is the airbag sensor for the fender on a 95 monte carlo


The sensor consists of a sensing element, normally open switch contacts and a diagnostic resistor. The sensing element closes the switch contacts when the vehicle velocity changes are severe enough to warrant air bag deployment. They are located around the bumpers near the fenders. Look on the framing near the fender. I attached a picture of one.

2001 pontiac grand am air bag module reset


Yes!!! You can replace it yourself.(Dont let others fool you into paying extra or telling you otherwise.)
-This is for pontiac grand ams 1999-2005 only.
-There are no frontal airbag impact sensors nor are there belt tensioners.
-The SRS system consists of only the (driver airbag) ,(passanger airbag),and the (airbag control module) in 1999-2005 grand ams.

If you crash/wrecked and airbags deployed you will need.
-Driver and Passanger airbags
-Airbag control module

You can buy cheap airbags from a local junkyard any year from 1999-2005 will fit.
You can also find an airbag control module for cheap at your local junk yard BUT YOU MUST FIND ONE WITH THE SAME (PART NO.) AND (SERV NO.) AS THE ONE YOUR REPLACING.The (part no.) and (serv no.) should be at top left of airbag control module.However it does (Not) have to match numbers under barcode or the numbers at the far bottom right of airbag control module.

After you get both airbags and airbag module
-Disconnect car Battery
-Replace airbags
-Replace airbag module (under passanger seat)
-Double check all connections and connect battery.

Congradulations!Your airbags should be back online.

Notes: Two torx 35 head screws hold the driver airbag, access is through two holes behind steering column.
To remove passanger airbag you have to remove glovebox it uses (7mm)screws.After you remove you will see a pair of (10mm)screws holding airbag.
To remove airbag control module First remove passanger seat 2(15mm).Then after removing you will notice a raises area kinda like a vertical bump.Take a razor blade to your carpet and cut it to explose the module underneath.
The airbag module is held by three screws depending on the year of your car it varies.Most likely 3 (10mm).

Did the airbag deploy? I had the same issue with my 1995 Chrysler when it was struck head-on and the airbags deployed. I think it is a feature to make sure that repairs are made correctly.

If you had it repaired, take it back to the repair shop.

If the airbag has been deployed, is is necessary to REPLACE the airbag (SRS) ECU. It is located below the center console. (See picture) It must be replaced because on your vehicle, it contains the crash sensors. If you do not replace it and hook-up new airbags and turn the key on, the new airbags will immediately deploy. There is no way to "reset" it.

Front impact crash & airbag did not diploy


Airbags have specific criteria for deployment that determines whether impact was severe enough to deploy bags or whether only 1 stage deployment is needed or may decide impact was minor enough that deployment of airbags could potentially be more dangerous than the actual impact. For instance I was on the expressway last year going 65mph and someone rear ended me at over 100mph. Totaled my Ford Focus, her airbag did not deploy. Over certain speeds depending on the vehicle calibration, and airbag should never deploy. With an impact under a designated speed or over a designated speed a deployment can be dangerous. As long as your airbag light was not on before the crash I'd say your system was working properly and did not malfunction. If your airbag light ever comes on just keep in mind that any airbag malfunction will disable the system and turn on the light

How can I remove the driver's side deployed airbag on my 2005 saturn Ion 3?


The Airbag is held to the steering wheel by screws at the back of the steering wheel, remove them and disconnect the electrical connector to the Airbag. Also whenever an Airbag is deployed the Airbag control module must be replaced, they are a one deployment part and then thrown away.
