On my 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette, the air bag light occasionally comes on. What I found is that under the drivers seat, there are some electrical connections. Make sure all of those are tight. Make sure you have nothing under the drivers seat pushing on the cables.

Where is the air bag location?


If the air bag light is on there is a code stored in the SRS restraint module - air bags ! Wiring problem , impact sensor ! First place to start is have the vehicle check for codes . Not with OBD2 code reader., factory or professional grade scan tool . If you have not worked on air bag systems I recommend you take it to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer . People have been killed by accidental air bag deployment , by not knowing what's up . Takes special tools !

My ex husband was in a roll over car accident in his 2006 ford fusion going 70 mph and his air bags didnt deploy. is there a recall on those or does he have a possible case for his injuries?


Front air bags are not designed to deploy in side impact, rear impact or rollover crashes.There are several reasons why your air bag may not have deployed during a crash. The first reason is that perhaps your crash is not the type of accident where air bag deployment would be helpful. For frontal air bags, this includes many, but not all, side impacts, rear impacts and rollovers. This category also includes minor accidents in which the driver and front passenger (if there was one) did not suffer any significant injuries requiring medical treatment. Many people do not realize there are a lot of side air bags that do not deploy during a rollover accident, even when the vehicle rolls onto its side. That is because those side air bags do not include an appropriate crash sensor that can detect rollover crashes.

Airbag light flashes four or five time then pauses and repeats.


The automatic air bag sensor is tested EVERYTIME to start the car/van. Your system has detected a failure in the Air Bag deployment sensor. It is not dangerous... but the air bag with the faulty sensor will not deploy in an accident.

Air bag warning light stays on on my mini one


That means your air bag is disabled and will not deploy in an accident. Only have a certified tech work on an air bag.

AIr Bag System 2000 Odls. Silhouette


Make sure there are no bad connections under the right front seat. Usually it is just a bad connection. Try to clear codes and see if the code returns. You could also try switching the left and the right and see if the problems moves to the left side to be sure it is a defective pretensioner. If you do need to change it, just unhook the battery for 5 minutes. Then unplug and unbolt it. Hook up the new one and then hook the battery back up.

The air bag light has come on to alert you to a system problem. Do not try to service it yourself. If you try to disconnect the system and don't know what you are doing you will deploy the air bag which can hurt you depending on your position in the vehicles interior at the time. Do the correct thing and let your dealer perform diagnosis on the system. If you deploy the air bag it will be a ver costly item to replace. Usually in excess of $1800.00 just to purchase one.
