My "Air Bag" idiot light just came on. Can anyone clue me in to what this
indicates. Is it a sensor problem, "bad" air bag, driver or passenger,
Any help would be appreciated, just spare me the smart ass answers please.
Last time I posted with a stinky car problem and everyone assumed I was some
troll. I left a 5lb. chub of hamburger in my car for 3 days in July, but
that's another nasty story. Every once in a while on a warm humid day, I am
reminded with a good whiff of decomposing meat coming out of my AC vents.
Airbag light comes up even for charging system failure; check if alternator
is ok, if you don't have tools simply rev engine with room lamp on and check
if it pulsates by changing engine speed; if alternator charge is poor or too
rich, replace alternator regulator, it's not too expensive.
Then, frequently happens that clock-spring under driver airbag has wrong
resistance. In this case, code is "DAB res. high (low)" and it's necessary
to replace this part (constant contact for driver airbag).
