How to reset the computer on my 2000 vw beatle?

Posted by admin

After removing some fueses, my air bag light stays on, never did this before.

anything dealing with saftey restraint system, ie airbags and seatbelts, and its light comes on, trying to kill the power to your ecu will do nothing, no matter what make… in every car i have dealt with, the srs stuff has a seperate computer, with a constant power supply and marked wire harnesses that are a different color… you have to get your car scanned and then reset by the scanner… its a saftey measure that if the light ever comes on, it has to be scanned to make sure nothing is wrong with your srs…

i suggest getting it scanned with a vag-com… you can try to go on to vwvortex.com and go to the regional section to see if anyone live around you that can do it for you… it might cost you a beer or free, depending on person…

if you cannot do that you can either go to autozone to use their scanner, usually thats free, or pay at the dealer

the red SRS light turned on in my 2000 honda civic?

Posted by admin

the SRS light turned on a couple days ago and has remained lit. what does it mean and how do you fix it?

It means that either there`s a problem with your airbag deployment mechanism or it`s a fault in the electrical system ie:the light is coming on when there`s really nothing wrong with the air bags….either way,take it to a certified Honda dealer……wouldn`t want to find out the hard way,would you?

Hi Linz,long time…

my 2007 altima has a flashing airbag light what does this mean?

Posted by admin

i was driving and i noticed that the airbag light keeps flashing and wont stop. how can i fix it?

You probably have a malfunctioning sensor. You can try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, then reconnect and see if it goes off. If the problem still exists, the light will come back on and should be seen by a professional. A body shop would be able to help you.

Why is the airbag light on in my 07 ford explorer?

Posted by admin

this evening I let me battery die, by accident of course and got someone to jump the car, the car came on fine and I started driving and I noticed my airbag light was on, on the dashboard.. it didnt come on until after the battery died and got restarted..
could anyone tell me why that light is on?
or will it go off next time I start the car?

i’m scared, driving with an airbag light on cannot be good.

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 there is a problem. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Your vehicle will require a scan tool for the proper diagnosis, (and not the scanner at Auto Zone…airbag systems cannot be ready by that scanner) but here’s a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system. 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! Although it’s a pay site ($14.95/day), it’s a lot cheaper than going to the dealer.

Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) . Most all other vehicles require a scan tool for the diagnosis. Here is a link to the list of vehicle and scanner requirements.
Check out these websites also for more info on airbag systems and the light.
Lastly, check your vehicle for recalls through this link.

Where is the scs connector on a 2000 honda accord?

Posted by admin

My SRS light is on and I wanted to see if I could reset it on my own before I had to bring it to a shop. I live in Boston so I don’t know if I will be able to pass inspection with that light on.

I don’t know if the connector you are looking for is in the exact same place as in this posting, but here is a link that should give you an idea of what you are looking for:
http://www.geocities.com/myintegra96/srs.html

If there really is a problem with the airbag, the light will probably come right back on. I would take it in and have it checked out just to be safe. There was an airbag related recall on the 2000 Accord, but I don’t know if it would trigger the light.

what can be the reason why my srs light came on im my 1994 honda civic?

Posted by admin

My SRS light has been on in my car for awhile now someone said i needed break shoes is that true?

there is no simple answer on your SRS problem other than to say it is definetly NOT your brake shoes!

The SRS is your Supplemental Restraint System (otherwise known as "Airbags"). The light comes on when the computer senses something is malfunctioning in the system. There are about 6 components and 15 possible ‘problems’ that can turn the light on.

the important thing for you to know is that if the SRS light is ON, your airbags will not work under any circumstances. The airbag system is shut off when a problem is detected so that the airbags don’t accidently go off because of whatever problem was detected by the computer.

I would recommend you stop by a honda dealer or any body shop and have them run the diagnostic test to find out why the light is on. once you know why its on you can get an estimate for repair and decide at that point if you want to make the repairs or not.

hope that helps

I have a airbag code and was woundering what it means?

Posted by admin

I have a 2000 Chevy Tahoe with a 5.3 Liter and over the past few days I have had the airbag light flashing in front of me I hooked up my scanner and I got this code out of the airbag system. Out of the history codes:

B0028 See Service Manual

What does this code mean? What does the service manual say this code means?

i own a shop,and all its dong is probably telling you it has a sensor going bad on it ,they,ll throw out a code on it if any of the sensors are going bad ,usually its one of the front or bottom sensors that cause this,,good luck,i hope this help,s.

Airbags dash light is always lit on my 1998 Chrysler Voyager. What is the deployement risk?

Posted by admin

Problems with dash lights began when I changed the battery. Ventilation and air conditioning pushbutton lights started blinking most of the time, A few months later the airbag light started remaining on for a while after engine start. Finally the airbag light is on full time. Is this an airbag deployement risk?

The risk that it will go off when it isn’t supposed to is pretty slim, I’d think. The bigger problem would be that it doesn’t go off when it should. It may be the sensor going bad. Although, on a lot of cars just disconnecting the battery will cause that light to some on. I’d strongly suggest taking to the dealership, though. You really want those things working properly.
