I had been told by the dealership mechanics that the dash panel connectors develop contamination and stop making good contact with the cable. I pulled my cable loose from the panel and sprayed a small amount of DeOxIt (buy from a local electronics store) into the cable connectors. The other way to fix it is to replace the dash panel (cluster) at $850 for parts and who knows how much for labor. on mine it was a loose connector behind the dash, check to make sure the plug is latched There is a recall on this. It is the ground wire for the dash not tight enough. Dealer should fix for free. Although, not sure if this would also cause airbag light to come on. It will cause all gauges to go to zero while driving.

If the light is on, the computer has detected a malfunction. You will need to take in for service, so a qualified technician can repair cause of malfunction.

The only way to switch off the airbag light is to remove the airbag light or remove the airbag light fuse. The airbag light fuse will disable several other instrument panel warning lights.

Yes, a blown or missing fuse can cause the airbag light to stay on.

Could be as simple as a blown fuse. Alot of crawler guys pull the fuse when playing and the light comes on.

The airbag light stays on when the computer detects a malfunction and sets a code.

It is the airbag light. If the light stays solid, it means your airbag needs service. If it flashes, it's just self testing.

There are several things that can cause your 1996 Chevy Tahoe airbag light to come on. The most common cause is a malfunctioning airbag module.

The airbag light stays on when there is a malfunction in the system. The computer needs checked for codes, and the cause repaired for the light to go off.

You need to have the code checked and the cause of it repaired to get the light off.

Once you have repaired the cause of the light, it will reset itself.Once you have repaired the cause of the light, it will reset itself.

You have to repair the cause of the light coming on. The airbag computer will have set a code about the cause. See related question for more info.

The light can not be reset without fixing the cause of the code that turned the light on.

it sounds like the instrument cluster went bad

The airbag light on a Chevy S10 truck will come on if a defect is detected or during testing when the vehicle is started. If the light remains on constantly, it must be checked by a dealership to determine the cause and have it repaired.

hey, my 98 jeep has the same issue. Was looking into the horn being shot, but realized that the airbag light has been on for some time as well. Wondering if you managed to get to the bottom of your issue? John hojo53@hotmail.com

Have a trained technician check it for codes and repair the cause.

If the cause of the code was fixed the light would have gone off on its own.

The light will reset itself when the cause of the code has been repaired.

Problem with the SRS. Not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional. There may be a problem with your airbag system if the light is staying on. Take to a qualified technician or your dealership for diagnosis.
