Air Bag Light comes on intermittantly

Postby microsvc » Wed Aug 03, 2016 7:23 am

The airbag light comes on intermittently, then goes off. There's no pattern to this, it seems random. The manual says if the light comes on, the airbags can deploy for no reason. Is this true? Any ideas what can cause this light to randomly come on?

Thx!

Would need to have the codes read. Unfortunately the air bag module cannot be scanned at your local parts store. It could be coming on for any number of reasons including bad impact sensor due to water intrusion. Bad clock spring in the steering wheel. Bad airbag module. Ect.

I have never heard of this happening on any vehicle.

worn clock spring would be top of my list for a suspect :)
