Is Your Airbag Light On? See Highway Auto Rockhampton



If your Airbag warning light comes on and stays on, there are a number of reasons why this can occur. Below we have put together some common information.

These explanations may help you identify where the problem may have originated from.

The important thing to know is that if your Airbag light is on or flashing, it means that most likely the SRS system in your vehicle is not active. If this is the case, driving a vehicle with an inactive SRS system is putting your passages and your self at risk in an even of an accident or collision. Therefore, if you get into an accident, the airbag/s will not deploy leaving you unprotected.

Airbag Battery Backup Depleted


A common problem that signals an airbag warning light to turn on or flash, is that your cars battery might have drained recently and the airbag battery backup depleted. This will often correct itself once the battery charge is fully restored.

However, depending on your vehicle, you may need a Scan Diagnostic Tool to remove the soft-code error that was written to the airbag control module.

Airbag Clock Spring Needs Replacing


The airbag clock springs main function is to maintain continuity with the drivers airbag and the electrical wiring. It maintains continuity by coiling in and out as the steering wheel turns. After many years of use the thin circuit bands my become brittle or worn and cause the drivers airbag to have an intermittent connection.
 

Airbag Module Got Wet or Corroded


A common location for the airbag module in many vehicles is underneath the driver or passenger seat. Therefore, even with light water damaged in the vehicles Airbag module it will short-out or corrode after being exposed to moisture.

A shorted module will immediately general a DTC airbag code and your airbag light will flash a warning.
