SOURCE: 2007 Passat wagon. I need to reset the air bag warning light.

the air bag light will only show if the ignition was turned on while it was disconnected.

it will defo need to be pluged into the computer to be put out but some smaller garages will have the software to do this and will be a little in ireland VW wanted 50euro to do mine but a small garage done it for 30euro.

you can buy code finders/reset gadgets on ebay but might not be worth it for one job compared to $130.

my suggestion would be to get the main dealer to do it if a normal automotive shop cannot access it.

SOURCE: chevy silverado 2006 lights "service air bag"

First of all you need to get this problem fixed ASAP. While the airbag light is illuminated, your SDM (Sensing and Diagnostic Module aka: the brain of your airbag system) shuts of power to the airbags. In which, if you are in an accident your airbags will not deploy while this light is illuminated. You need to take your vehicle to a GM dealership. A Tech 2 scantool is needed to retrieve the code from the SDM. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon. Good luck and hope all works well.

SOURCE: Ford Mondeo Mk3 Estate 2L. Air bag / seat belt Warning Light

Common fault on FORD
Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.

Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

SOURCE: The service air bag light is on.

Sometimes the wiring under the passenger seat can become compromised from objects in floor becoming wedged under the seat.May need to be reconnected if possible..Usually if the air bag light remains on , it means the air bag will not engage if needed. Should have the dealer service department check for you.

SOURCE: service air bag light how do i reset it or repair

DO NOT mess with the air bags. Take it to the dealer, as there are no user serviceable parts. If you accidentally trigger one of the airbags, it will cost you almost $2000 to replace

Cannot find oil plug to change oil on cadillac srx all wheel drive 2011

The plug is a 15mm bolt. It is positioned on the corner point on the rear passenger side of the oil pan. The exhaust has a bend at that position so a ring spanner will be easier than a socket. have a look at the video link so you know what your looking for.

Have you had it checked for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes ! That's the first place to start ! Could be a lose wiring connection a bad control module etc.... A DTC would point you in a diagnostic direction .

Passenger seat belt warning stays on even with ignition off

Possible seatbelt latch problem. There are sensors in the latch part of the assembly that inform the restraint module as to what is happening. Sometimes foreign objects get stuck in the latch assemblies ( Children ) and can affect operation. Scanning the airbag module for codes will let you know what part of the restraint system is causing these lights to be on. As long as the airbag light remains on, the airbags will not deploy in the event of an accident

My service air bag light is on in a 2005 escalade, how do i reset it?

If the air bag light is on, the system has detected a current fault. You could reset it with a scanner but it will return shortly. The system will have to be scanned, the codes pulled and then diagnosed from there. Keep in mind the air bag system is turned off when this light is on.

My mechanic installed new shocks on the rear of my 06 SRX that did not have the air bag. I now have a message on my display screen that limits my speed to 80. Do I have to install the right shocks or is...

Why did you not install the correct shocks.Cost is high, but its a Cadillac, they dont make them with cheap parts, if they did, it would be a chevy. I dont think there is a fix.
