SRS Airbag control module needs to be reset  if your vehicle was in an accident and the airbag light is on. However, if your vehicle was not in an accident, there are a variety of reasons why your vehicle’s airbag light may turn on.  Our skilled technicians at MyAirbags provide high quality airbag module reset services for customers nationwide. Listed below are the top 5 questions and answers our technicians hear when a vehicle’s airbag light is on.

FAQs  about Airbag Light

1. Why is Airbag Light On?

1. Why is Airbag Light On?

Common Customer Questions:

  • It just turned on
  • The light randomly came on
  • My vehicle was in an accident

If you know your vehicle was in an accident, then MyAirbags can absolutely help you and reset your airbag module. We provide Reset & Return service to reset airbag control modules. If your vehicle was in an accident, we recommend that you send your original module to us for reset to avoid additional trip to the dealer for coding. Most of the late model cars will have partial VIN stored in the airbag control module. If your vehicle has NOT been involved in an accident.

  1. We recommend that you have your vehicle scanned by a body shop to see what code you have.
  2. If they tell you that the airbag module is bad and not because of an accident then we do provide replacement srs airbag control modules.
  3. We recommend that you use the part number that is on top of your module to locate replacement module. When you purchase a used or new airbag control module it may need to be programmed/configured to your vehicle.

2. Why Did the Airbag Light Just Turn On One Day?

2. Why Did the Airbag Light Just Turn On One Day?

If the airbag light in your vehicle just turned on without an accident, there may be an issue with the airbag system computer, or there may be a bad component within the airbag system. If your vehicle has NOT been involved in an accident, we recommend you watch the accompanying tips and tech video and have your module scanned by a body shop tech before mailing your airbag module to us. If you find by watching this video or if the body shop tech scans and finds the fault in the airbag component, we recommend sending the airbag module to our metro Atlanta  facility, where our auto repair technicians will  restore it to its factory settings. When you receive your module back from us there are a few distinctly important rules you must follow:

  1. The repaired module MUST GO BACK INTO THE SAME VEHICLE IT WAS INSTALLED IN.  Airbag modules are identified to a specific car, just the same as you, the customer are to the address of your house…for instance, if you hop over to your neighbor’s house for an extended stay and expect your mail to get to you there, you’re probably going to have a few problems.
  3. Install all Airbag SRS components (except the module itself) and reconnect them properly first. SRS Installation components include: airbags, all seat belts, the clock spring, impact sensors and fuses.
  4. Disconnect your vehicle battery. Failure to follow this step usually results in permanent damage to the airbag module.  The BATTERY MUST BE DISCONNECTED prior to reconnecting your module.
  5. Once the battery is disconnected, your module MUST BE securely reinstalled and bolted down tightly.  “Securely” is defined here as completely fastened i.e. with the use of tools: wrench, ratchet wrench or torque wrench (key is: beyond hand threaded).
  6. Lastly, connect the wiring harness plugs to the airbag module and reconnect the battery.

If the vehicle hasn’t been in an accident and the airbag light turns on it usually means there is a connection issue with the seatbelt, the airbag, or the impact sensor, or that one of these components needs to be replaced.

3. Should I Send the Airbag Module for Reset or Buy Used?

3. Should I Send the Airbag Module for Reset or Buy Used?

Our certified technicians at MyAirbags recommend resetting your vehicle’s airbag module if the vehicle has been involved in an accident. Resetting the airbag module diminishes the need for any additional programming, and when properly installed into a working system, the airbag light will turn off. When you get the module back from us it is factory reset and is exactly like new and is a good module, free from all hard codes and soft codes. If your airbag light is still on after reinstalling correctly, then there is a problem with one of the connections or bad airbags, seat belts, clock spring and/or impact sensors and there would be a soft code stored in the module identifying the issue. Check that all SRS components and connections are good. Also, if you have purchased used parts then make sure that they were not from a flood vehicle.  To summarize: if you still have an airbag light on after receiving ours and following the rules for correct installation, then there are additional problems that only a body shop tech can address—it is not an airbag module problem.

4. Does MyAirbags Sell Replacement Airbag Modules?

4. Does MyAirbags Sell Replacement Airbag Modules?

MyAirbags does sell replacement airbag computer modules. 

  1. We recommend that you use the part number that is on top of your module to locate replacement module. When you purchase a used or new airbag control module it may need to be programmed/configured to your vehicle.
  2. Search our OEM SRS Airbag Modules Ready To Ship

When calling to order a replacement airbag computer module, please be prepared to give our customer service tech representatives the original module part number. Once we have the original module part number, we will be able to verify if we have the module in stock to sell you a replacement airbag computer module.

5. What if I’ve Already Purchased a New or Used Airbag Module Replacement?

5. What if I’ve Already Purchased a New or Used Airbag Module Replacement?

We advise our customers to compare the part numbers of their replacement airbag computer module to the vehicle’s original module; if the part numbers do no match, it is unlikely that the airbag module will work in the vehicle. Also, remember: the airbag module MUST BE FOR THE SAME VEHICLE IT CAME FROM.  If for instance, the module is for a 2008 Honda Accord, the replacement must be for 2008 Honda Accord. Once the replacement airbag module has been correctly installed in the vehicle the airbag light may still turn on. Again, for the reasons detailed above, you need to verify that you have followed the correct steps and that other parts were not from a flood damaged vehicle.  However, if you have done everything else successfully, the airbag module may need to be reprogrammed for the specific VIN of your car by that manufacturer’s dealership.  This is why we always recommend that customers send in their original modules from their vehicles.  Each module is coded for the VIN of the automobile it is in.

    Beginning with the advise on how to locate the unit by the knowledgeable customer service, I was guided through the entire process. I was informed via email on all the stages from receiving, processing, and shipping back. My airbag system now works perfectly. Great job, MyAirbags has saved me several hundred of dollars. I would recommend MyAirbags to all other whom are looking for fast, affordable and reliable services from the professional team members.

    Awesome company, They repaired so far 2 airbag modules and worked perfectly fine when installed. This company saved me hundreds of dollars. Their shipping is super fast. Highly recommended!!!!

    I can’t believe how easy and affordable this service was. I sent in my deployed air bag module that the dealer wanted to charge over $500 plus programming for a new one. I mailed it out to them and they return the module fix and no more air bag light. For under $50 plus the $7 it cost me to ship it. They paid for the return shipping. Easy plug and play no programming required for my GMC Yukon. Will be using again plus they do instrument cluster repairs as well.

    Company did an awesome job. They did the job fast and with no issues. Price was very reasonable. I reconstructs vehicles all the time and will definitely use them again and recommend them when needed.

    Sent in my module for the random setting of “hard” codes not related to any crash. Module was storing crash data, however, the vehicle was not crashed nor were there any deployment. I sent in my module, and had it returned to me in a few days. Great service, saved me hundreds!

    This was the fastest service I have received. I shipped my item for repair priority and 2 days later it arrived. They notified me when it was received. Then later that day they notified me it was repaired and it will be shipped out that day. 2 days later it arrived good as new. I recommend MyAirbags since they delivered everything that was mentioned in their description. Will return for future services.

    I have used this company 3 times. Every time they deliver just what I need. I recently saved purchasing a new SDS module from the dealer by just reusing my old one AFTER they repaired it! They are a life saver!

    I was told by many, including the dealer, that my SRS airbag module must be replaced and then programmed back to my vehicle. This would have been another hundred on top of the 400 for a new module. Instead I sent MyAirbags my module. Within the week, it was returned and I installed it. Since it went right back into the SAME car, no dealer trip was necessary! Best 50 bucks I ever spent! Great communication too.

    I had a purchased a used gauge cluster for my escalade, and it came with inaccurate mileage. The team at MyAirBags did a fantastic job in correcting the abnormality, and shipped it back to me quickly. Communication was superb, and they have a customer for life with me.

Removal Instructions

Failure to follow this instruction may result in the accidental deployment of “air bag”, “seat belt”, which increases the risk of serious personal injury or death.

  • Never probe the electrical connectors on air bag or seat belt.
  • Never disassemble or tamper with safety belt buckle/retractor pretensioners, adaptive load limiting retractors, safety belt inflators, or probe the electrical connectors.
  • Do not use electrical test equipment to check SRS circuits unless instructed to in this Service Manual.
  • Before servicing the SRS, turn ignition switch OFF, disconnect both battery cables and wait at least 3 minutes. For approximately 3 minutes after the cables are removed, it is still possible for the air bag and seat belt pre-tensioner to deploy. Therefore, do not work on any SRS connectors or wires until at least 3 minutes have passed.
