Q: Airbag Light on

asked by on

The Airbag Light is on.

The illuminated Airbag Light means there is a problem in the supplemental restraint system (SRS). The control module continuously monitors the performance of this system and turns on the light if it detects a problem. The first step is to retrieve the SRS diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). These codes provide a starting point for the diagnostic procedure. While there are countless reasons for the warning light, one common source of failure for your vehicle stems from the electrical connections under the seat. A trained professional will be able to determine the cause of the illuminated Airbag Light, and recommend the best path to repair. I suggest giving YourMechanic a call.
