Thread: Airbag light on - does that mean the airbag is not working?

  1. #1

    Default Airbag light on - does that mean the airbag is not working?

    My airbag light comes on anywhere within 5-10 min. of starting my Jeep Liberty and doesn't go off until the engine is turned off. Does that indicate that my airbag won't work if I'm in an accident? The dealer wants $100+ to check it and if they can't find anything, it will go up from there. Does anyone know what the light really means? Will the airbag still work or should I have it checked?

    Generally speaking when an indicator light comes on it means there is a problem with that device. If your air bag indicator is on, there is a problem and the air bag will not deploy. Isn't your life worth at least $100? ;-) Take it to the dealer and have it checked out.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Of course my life is worth more than $100. I just want to be sure it's not something that can be ignored. I don't trust the customer service people who are different everytime I go in, which isn't much.

    If you have an AutoZone nearby they might have a scanner that will read abs codes and they do not charge for checking

    My 2000 grand cherokee laredo. Airbag light comes on intermittently when i turn the steering wheel hard left or right. Light goes off when i turn wheel back straight. Both horn and cruise work, so thinking it's not the clockspring. Any ideas? Jeep has 166k on it. Obd2 shows no codes.

    Clockspring may be loose in the steering wheel
