Why is my airbag light on... it just came on the other day. I was messing with fuel injector wires from the ecu and later noticed it came on. Basically what i want to hear is that my worst fear wont come true, the bag isnt going to deploy at some random time when im cruising down the road. I dont plan on taking it to a dealer and paying them $500 to turn the light off :dead: Should i just pull the fuse out? This is how my car treats me for putting a new motor in it....
I have the exact same problem with my car right now I don't know what is going on. The past few days it has remained on constantly, but last week it was fine. I am going to call my dealership and see whats up
A Question that I have though, cause I have seen on different forums that this issue is cause by the alternator, it keeps spiking the voltage. In return damaging the ecu for the airbag. Would a audio system damage my alternator hindering my air bag ecu? If so damn that blows. :dead:
Nah I doubt the audio system would damage it, just more wear and tear is all. I've had a large system in my car (2 amps low ohm loads) for almost 3 yrs on the same alt. Keep me updated about what the dealership says please! I tried reseting the comp but it wont go away, I could try another ecu and see what happens as i have a spare.
I've had my airbag light on for a couple months now, due to starting my car with no instrument cluster in (a no no aparently) there is a guy who owns a garage by me who is like "Mr. Hyundai" He used his snap-on scan tool and reset my airbag light for me for like 10 bucks. Everything else i tried didn't do a damn thing, dissconnecting the battery, nothing worked.
That would be my suggestion, the dealership wanted way too much for a 5 min job.
Well I got a diag, just pretty much said I broke the circuit when I started the car with no cluster, and I got it cleared all for 10 bucks, If you could find a garage with the correct tools they could do it too.
I am going into the dealship tommorow morning to get my car looked at and my Autopac claim taken care of since I am sick of looking at the gash in my front left bumper. Anyways I will see what they say an let yah know what I hear, hope it isn't anything to expensive if not free.
Well I went to the dealship and got my airbag light turned off. It appears a connection on my passanger airbag was the issue. Makes me happy that I didn't do anything for a change. Best of luck with your issue dude.
