SOURCE: The airbag light on my 2002 dodge ram 1500 pickup stays on

you need to have it checked out.with the light staying on in an accident the airbag may not deploy. the most likely cause is a bad clockspring but further diagnosis is needed

SOURCE: my srs light had been on

It is my understanding that the SRS is a dealer only reset because it requires a code that is proprietory to MB dealers only. Now, a garage with a good scanner (loaded with applicable MB program) may be able to reset it for cheaper than a dealer. Nonetheless, I do not believe you can reset it on your own.

A side note, as long as the SRS light is on, your airbag and/or belt tensioners may not work if you're in a collision.

SOURCE: 1997 Dodge Caravan Horn and Airbag light

It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .

SOURCE: Airbag dashboard light keeps blinking. In 1997 Ford Thunderbird.

The air bag computer will have to be scanned and the code read to know what the fault the computer detects. The problem will have to be repaired for the light to shut off. Keep in mind, when the air bag light is illuminated the air bag system is deactivated. Meaning, in the event of a collision the bags won't deploy.

I have a 2010 Dodge Caliber. We replaced the cv axle shaft and had to pull the hub out and then to a machine shop to have bearing replaced. Put everything back together took it off jacks. Drove it up ramps...

if the recall was done usually will reset on its own have vehicle scanned for trouble code may have nothing to do with recall and if it does bring back to dealer to correctly repair the recall

How do I get the airbag light to shut off on the dashboard?

You take it an have DTC'S checked in the air bag control module . Have it fixed ,then the light will go out . Your best bet is take it to a ASE certified repair shop . You wouldn't want to have an unintended airbag deployment . People have been killed from not knowing what they were doing an setting off an airbag !

warning: disable the airbag system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. disconnect and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the airbag system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. this is the only sure way to disable the airbag system. failure to take the proper precautions could result in an accidental airbag deployment and possible personal injury or death.

  1. disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.

  2. remove the center bezel (1) from the instrument panel and disconnect the wire harness connectors (4 and 5) from the back of the a/c-heater control (2) see: body and frameinterior moulding / trimdashboard / instrument panelservice and repairinstrument panel center bezel - removal .

note: take the proper precautions to protect the front face of the center bezel from cosmetic damage.

Changed rack and pinion. when turning wheel to right horns started blowing. unplugged airbags and horn stopped. drove truck for 1 day now wont start and dome light is blinking and warning lights on dash...

It sounds like you disturbed the wiring or the connector inside the lower portion (inside the cabin, under the dashboard) of the steering column. You may have also pinched wiring higher inside the steering column, up near the horn button. You'll need to track it all down & correct the wiring problems in (and around) the steering column.

Air bag light comes on intermdiately

it is the sensor located under the dashboard area. you can buy another one off the internet for 50.00. with instructions on how to remove the old one and then send it back for your deposit back. however, my light also comes on and off when the weather changes. i would ignore it unless it stays on for a few days. all it means is your airbag isnt working. i lived most my life without airbags.
