if the light is on the airbags are off-line (not working)
Its a warning showing the airbags are at risk of deploying. The light is on because the computer has detected a malfunction.
The airbag light indicates that the system has detected a fault with the airbag system. You'll need to take the vehicle to an authorized repair facility and have the airbag system diagnosed. I highly recommend that you NOT attempt this work yourself. Airbags are extremely sensitive, and even a small static discharge can cause release of the airbag. Airbags are expensive and untimely discharges are potentially dangerous.
You will not pass inspection in NJ with an airbag light ON. If you owned the car when the light came ON and your airbags have not previously deployed, this could be a sensor or wiring problem. If you need new Airbags, the repair could be as much as $1000. Most mechanics will charge 1 hour labor for diagnostics.
The airbag light in a 1995 262 will come on when there is an airbag circuit problem. The airbag will not work right in the event of a crash unless the problem is fixed.
To reset the airbag warning light on a Volvo V40, you must take the vehicle to the dealer. The dealer will check the airbags and turn off the light using a specific tool.
It means the small computer that runs the airbag system has detected a problem with the airbag sensors and firing circuits. So your airbags will not work in an accident. Get it checked.
It means you should probably check your airbags
If you mean that you have a warning light on, then once the problem that is causing the airbag warning light to come on is diagnosed and fixed, the light will reset itself.
if the problem is fixed, then whoever fixed it should have reset it. if it isn't fixed, fix it.
replace airbag sensors, or fix the damage around them (front end damage i would assume)
Check the plug to your airbags, it may be loose or poorly connected. This light is an indicator that there is a problem with your airbag system.
Problem with the SRS. Take it to a dealer for repair. the airbags may or may not be working.
Yes it happened to me. My airbag light is flashing after changing the battery and the mechanic not following procedure
How can I myself reset the airbag light to my chev malibu 2003. The light just started to stay on and now it wont go off. If i can't fixed it how much should i pay to get it fixed..bob
The BMW E36 cars do come standard with an airbag. This awesome car also has a safety light to let you know that your airbag is on and working properly.
I have the same year one, and mine has NO indication that there is any airbags, does yours??
It means the computer has detected a problem in the airbag system. Usually this will cause the computer to deactivate the airbag system. (Meaning the airbags will not work in an accident) The dealer can tell you what needs repaired.
The light is telling you that there is a problem with the air bag system and that it is not functioning. Until the problem is fixed the light will remain on.
It is possible the airbag sensor needs to be adjusted or that there is a computer problem. The problem needs to be diagnosed by a mechanic. If the airbag light is on, the airbags won't work in an accident, so it is important to have it fixed as soon as possible. If you're sure there isn't a problem, you can remove the airbag electronic control unit and send it in to a company that works on them to have them clear the unit. A mechanic can do this also, but will want to diagnose the problem and properly repair whatever is wrong.
When the airbag light flashes and stays illuminated in grain, means the air bags our operational. When the symbol is illuminated in red, the airbags are not operational.
The air bag light is on because there is a problem with the air bag system. Until the problem is fixed the light will remain on. When the problem is fixed the light will reset itself.
Check under recalls.There may have been a recall on this problem. The airbag controller has detected a problem. The airbags or an airbag may not deploy when called upon.
If the car is off and no one hits you the airbag should not deploy. If you are driving and stopped at a traffic light and someone hits you, the airbag could possibly deploy depending on the impact of the accident.
Replacing the seatbelts involves removing several interior trim panels, unfortunately almost all of them, starting from the front. If the seatbelt will no longer retract, it is non-functioning and needs replacement. Seat belts should ALWAYS be replaced after an accident involving airbag deployment. The airbag light is telling you the dealer or a qualified mechanic needs to do some slightly dangerous work replacing the airbags and the airbag controller.
