Evening All,

Just recently the airbag light has been coming on every time i start my car. There is only one airbag in the VT executive and that's in the steering wheel, and I have not hit it hard or anything like that.

Does anyone know what may be triggering it off or if there is some way to find out what's going on besides paying an auto electrician $75/hr?

Thanks heaps,
Joe

Disconnecting any part of the SRS system without disconnecting the battery can cause the fault, spilling a drink between your seat and the console can wet the connector for the seatbelt pre-tensioners and trigger a fault, a faulty clock spring plus several other things can also be the problem. There is no way of knowing without scanning for the fault.

Too many to list......
They should be able to tell you what is causing the fault as soon as they connect it to a Tech 2. Usually if it was unprovoked it's a faulty clock spring.

If the airbag light comes on, would the airbag still deploy in an accident?

It is my understanding that it won't but I am not 100% sure.

Just purchased a VT last week with this problem, the owner had it checked and was quoted $300 to have the clock spring fixed
