Why is my airbag warning light on?
Besides seat belts, airbags are probably the most important safety feature when it comes to a crash or accident. Together, seat belts and airbags reduce the risk of fatal injuries by 61%, according to NHTSA. So, if your airbag warning light is on, you need to get it checked out. Here are four common reasons that your airbag warning light could be on:
Empty airbag backup battery
Damaged airbag clock spring
Wet airbag module
Some vehicles also have aurbag On/Off switches for certain conditions (such as if there’s a child in the front passenger seat). For many vehicles, when the switch is in the Off position, the airbag warning light turns on. It’s worth checking to see if your vehicle has this switch and if its in the Off position before scheduling an appointment.
