Replacement Airbags For your Vehicle

I have a 2.0lrt gls vauxhall vectra y reg and my airbag light stays on all the time 1st does anyone know why this is happening 2nd will it fail the mot on this problem 3rd any idea of the cost if i get it fixed ????????

I had the same problem on an Astra.Was told it would not effect the airbag,and was not dangerous.All I did to stop the annoting light was to take the light out.Problem solved for free.My car never failed an MOT.

    i had a simmiler problem on my renault clio.

    i never had any problems with the mot and i took it to a garge and they told me it wasnt even worth fixing and that my airbag was fine.

    make sure you get your airbag checked out though its only about twenty quid in most garages

    It comes and goes on and off in my astra off the same year all the time, on mine its the sensor which causes it, ive had replaced which stopped it for nearly two years, but its back again now. I generally ignore it, but weather or not the airbags will actually fire in an accident is anyone’s guess.

    As for MOT , the airbag although pretty much standard on newer cars is still seen as optional safety equipment. and therefore not checked. Mines passed many mot’s with the light blinking away.

    It’s not an MoT item. It may just be something silly like a loose connector under the seat, or it may be something else. Until you get it checked you won’t know, and you ought to get it checked ‘cos you don’t want the thing to go off in your face or, worse, fail to go off at all in an accident.

    It is not a testable item so it will not fail .Since its a safety related item you should get it attended to .Very often on vectras its the squib driver that’s faulty that is the air bag connector.You need a Vauxhall dealer to check it out with Tech 2 diagnostic tool.

    Go and see a dealer asap, as your airbag is switched off and will not go off if you have an accident. Basically something on the airbag system isn’t working so for safety sake it switches off so it doesn’t go off accidentally. It probably wouldn’t fail the MOT as long as your seatbelts buckle correctly. See dealer for potential costs, as it could be a number of things, and these all have different poces.

    the 1st question is easy that problem is caused by a faulty air bag compresser that fills the air bag up when the car starts up are there could be a senscer that is bad too we have seen some deflait at times due to a sensor problem and yes it will fail the test if not fixed properly cause the computer will send a signal to the light and the sensor to stay on untill it is fixed and will not go out untill the computer is reset and that is a easy thing to do try taken the battery cable off the posative side and wait 5 minutes and the put it back on and that should reset the computer and the sensor ok hope this helps……and it should cost all that much to fix a simple problem like this one ok thanks
