Replacement Airbags For your Vehicle

Would it be a fuse and if it is does it mess the airbag up if u pull the fuse?

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. This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights on the …scanlist.aspx page listed below.

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 one at Auto Zone—it needs to be airbag system specific, like a good body shop or the dealer). 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.

    best thing to do is i would take it up to an autozone they will hook up the computer to find out why the light is on and they do it for free. Other places i know will charge $50 and up. After you find out why your airbag light is on go from there. If its just a simple fuse problem that is something you could take care of. but if they need to re-set something in the computer they might be able to do that but if that atleast you know what needs to be done and take it to a shop to have it done. With you knowing why the light is on and what they need to fix it that should avoid having to have the shop hook it up to their diagnostic computer and charge you for that.
