The problem is with the wiring harness that plugs into the back of the gauge box. You will have to remove the upper dash and a few other places to get to it, but when you do, just make sure that the wires plug correctly into the back and the problem should be fixed. I had the same problem. Mine would actually go nill like you are describing and then when I would hit it just right, all would come back on.
Most likely, yes. As long as what caused the horn to break did not affect the airbag system.
Try disconnecting the battery cable, then reconnecting. If the airbag light still comes on, you need to take it to the dealer. Something in the airbag circuit isn't working correctly. To fix might involve removing the airbag. I've had the airbag light come on in my car two times & I've taken it to the dealer each time. I'm leery working around the airbag. You must disconnect the battery for a min of 5 mins
You need to have someone with a scan tool check the airbag system for trouble codes. The airbag system is not a place for do it your selfers.
Possible clockspring failure.
The flashing means that you have an airbag code. This means that there is a problem with your airbag, and your vehicles computer is trying to tell you to take it to the dealership to be fixed. Go see your nearest dealership soon. Do not worry, the airbag won't just go off randomly if their is a problem, the light is probably indicating that the airbag will not work if you get in an accident. A dealership will be able to interpret this code and tell you what is wrong.
Sounds like a communication issue with the computers on the vehicle. You need to have the systems checked for codes with a scan tool.
Airbag system is not working correctly.
if the light is on the airbags are off-line (not working)
Probably a bad clockspring, be carefull that probably meens you're airbag is out of function too, Does the airbag light come on?
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.
inflatable resistance is the systems way of telling you that your airbag is functional this light or message should go out in a few seconds if the airbag system is operational , and working propperly if this does not go out then you need to have the airbag serviced
Working on the SRS is very hazardous. Leave this repair to a professional.
If everything is plugged in and working the airbag system will reset itself.
this was my question i found the problem a rat had chewed my wires behind the pcm i also found out if your lights or gauges don't work you are not getting power to pcm
Working on the SRS can be very dangerous. Take it to a professional.
It means before you bought your car it might have been in a car crash and the airbag deflated (?) and you need to replace it before you land into a car crash so you have support and you won't die. Just learned that today because a boy in my class randomly asked our teacher. XD
The airbag (SRS) light is on because there is a problem with the system. Due to the fact that working on this system can be hazardous I recommend you have it repaired by a professional. He will reset the light once the system is repaired.
Problem with the SRS. Take it to a dealer for repair. the airbags may or may not be working.
You take the vehicle to a professional for repair. Working on the SRS can be very hazardous.
Working on the SRS can be very hazardous. For this reason I suggest you have this repaired by a professional.
Anytime that you are working on a vehicle with an airbag it is recommended that you disconnect the battery.... That should disable it enough to work on it
Check your owners manual or the underside of the fuse panel lid. One fuse will be labeled for gauges and meters (possibly along with the cruise control, airbag and other systems). That's a place to start. BUT, if all of your meters are working and only the clock has gone dark I'd suspect the instrument rather than the fuse. Cheers
It is on because there is a problem with the SRS. Take it to a professional, as working on the SRS is dangerous and not a DIY job.
Due to the inherent dangers of working on the SRS I would recommend you have this done by a professional.
I had the same light come on in my 1999 Mits Galant GTZ. It saying your airbags are not working properly. I had to replace a switch located behind my drivers side airbag. I did it myself and it was pretty easy. Dont let the dealership say you HAVE to replace the airbag, because you dont!! Just be careful when handling the airbag.
