Rover 800 Airbag faults help needed!?

Posted by admin

I’m having a problem with the SRS Airbag Light. It’s staying on, all the time, and stays flashing.
The only thing I can think of is that I was messing about with the window switch, and maybe I crossed wires somewhere…but I’m not sure.
It’s 1 airbag, on the driver’s side. I’ve checked all the fuses, they are all ok.
Any ideas?
should probably also add, there are no wires underneath the driver’s seat, and I have also tried unplugging the battery…

If it doesnt clear when you disconnect the battery it means there is a fault on the system, could be either an internal fault on the airbag or SDM, or a wiring fault. Also, if it has a fault on the pretensioner on the seatbelt this can turn on the light. The only way of knowing is to check the fault codes using a code reader, you will be best taking it to the garage.

Mitsubish Colt airbag light cancelling?

Posted by admin

Hi all, I have a Mitsubishi Colt CZ2 year 2006 UK model 1.3 Petrol (gasoline) that has had the pre tensioner activated on the passenger seat belt, the seat belt and pre tensioner have been replaced with a known good unit but the SRS (airbag) lamp is still lit, consequently the car beeps at me every so often, it’s annoying. Short of taking it to the dealers and splashing the cash, does anyone out there know how to reset the SRS light? I have tried the Bosch hand held diagnostic unit but it will not recognise the fault. Thanks.

There are specific items that are required replacement items when a deployment occurs or when an airbag light comes on…and there are some items that are "check only". Check out the websites below for the EXACT answers to your questions including fault code charts and reset information. This site tells you exactly what needs to be replaced and how to access them (seat belts & all) on over 3500 cars. It’s a pay site ($14.95 / day), but it’s little money well spent to get the correct answers and to see exactly what you’re after…it uses pictures, not text, so you can see what you’re looking for.
This is the same website insurance companies and body shops use to determine what needs to be replaced.
Good Luck…it’s not too bad of a job & if your state allows it, used parts or parts from ebay should be ok
Lastly, here’s a page in this site that tells you which cars need a scan tool to reset the system and which ones can be done without it.

why is the airbag light flashing on my nissan serena?

Posted by admin


I have a Nissan Altima and when the airbag light is flashing with #2, it means that whoever is on the front passenger seat is too small or doesn’t weight very much. So the airbag is off and will not work. Check on your car manual.

Why is my airbag light on in my 2003 chevy cavalier?

Posted by admin

I went to start my car this morning and the airbag light is on for no reason. ALso my stereo now says ‘locked’, I think it’s the anti theft but the car hasn’t been broken into and I haven’t been in any wreck. Can someone tell me what’s wrong? And how do I fix it?

Hi Dawntika:
A couple of things…
The airbag system is not tied to the antitheft system on your car (if you even have one). The radio (and airbag circuit) may have lost power which would trigger the "Lock" code to appear. Check all your fuses. If you lost power in an improtant circuit, it may affect both systems.

Regarding the airbag, your car will require a scan tool to diagnose it properly, but here’s a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system.
http://www.airbagsolutions.com/

This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights. See if your car is listed here. Although it’s a pay site ($14.95/day), it’s a lot cheaper than going to the dealer
http://www.airbagsolutions.com/vehicles_list.aspx

On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident.
The flashing light on your car is telling the answer you need. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.
Airbagsolutions.com has the fault code charts to tell you what is wrong and how to fix it!

Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) and some require a scan tool.

Check out these websites also for more info on airbag systems and the light.

Faulty ignition switch in my 98 BMW 740i

Posted by admin

Signs of faulty ignition switch: no power at 1st key position, airbag light on/flickers, radio not functioning, no DSP display on MENU, steering column moves by itself while driving, opening the mirror in the visor causes the steering column to move, no seat/steering memory functions. There are more signs, but these are what’s happening in my E38.

IM GANA TAKE IT TO THE HONDA DEALERSHIP AND SEE WHAT THEY SAY, I DONT WANT TO BUY IT AND THE LIGHT NOT TURNING OFF :p

Check out this website.

The purpose of this website and company is to help people diagnose and repair airbag problems themselves without taking them to the dealer (if possible). It offers all the photos and data you need to understand your airbag system, read the codes and reset the light. It’s a pay site, but it certainly is worth the money ($14.95 for 1 day full access)
There’s a place to check if your car is listed on the home page

This is quite a complete website with pictures, descriptions and factory fault code charts as well as a working demo that shows just how easy these repairs can be. Although it does not give step by step instructions, there is enough information in the pictures and the "how-to" pages that most people can do it themselves.
Lots of insurance companies and body shops use this site for the information they need to repair your car.
Lastly, there’s a page in this site that tells you which cars need a scan tool and which ones can be done without one

go into the fuse box and take out that fuse, the operation manual should have a diagram of which fuse is connect to the lighting in the dash board.
