Airbag Light On?

Your airbag light may be on due to various reasons and most of the time because of an airbag fault. This could be related to the airbag module itself or any of the following airbag components:

  • Airbags deployed
  • Faulty seat belt pretensioners
  • Faulty airbag clock spring
  • Crash sensors fault
  • Crash data stored
  • Wiring harness problem

While these are the most common faults, your airbag light may be on due to other reasons. Regardless of what it is, you should always scan your system using an OBD airbag scanner to read and obtain the codes. If you do not own an OBD airbag scanner, you can get this diagnosed at any local shop. If you work with cars often, we recommend investing in an OBD airbag scan tool to scan the system and retrieve codes whenever your airbag light is on. The device is around $100 and would pay for itself almost immediately when comparing to false diagnostic fees.
