Having problems with your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier ?
Air bag light
\015 Hi all, '98 chev cavalier - Air bag light has come on and I don't know how to reset. Have removed steering wheel cover and checked air bag connections and all looks fine. Any suggestions on where else or what else I should be looking at or checking.\015\012Thanks\015
Usually\015\012a lit airbag can be attributed to faulty wiring, crash sensor behind\015\012the front bumper, bad connection between the airbag and lower part of\015\012the steering column, or a faulty airbag module. I've also heard of clockspring wiring harness problems. An airbag "on" light means that your airbag system is INACTIVE. Be careful. Check for a safety recall. You must have the battery disconnected for at least 15 minutes for a reset and double check your battery. I know it seems simple, but a poor battery will trip a code. 15 minutes allows the SDM (Sensing \015\012Diagnostic Module or Airbag computer) to discharge the backup power for \015\012airbag. Do this especially if you're poking around the controls. It sounds like a bad connection which is not allowing communication between all parts of the system. Also check the fuse (can't hurt).
