Airbag warning lights

Hi All,

My first post.

I arrived at your forum after i did a quick Google search regarding airbag warning lights on fiat Punto's.

My Fiat Punto 02 model has a airbag warning light that stays on and it seems from various forums that this is an inherent problem and can be a pain in the butt to fix.

I called a main dealer with this issue and was told that it would need a diagnostic check but he said the airbag will still work under crash conditions even with the warning light on. He explained that the deployment of the airbag is a mechanical operation as well as a electrical operation.

Can someone confirm this to be correct? So if the electronic sensors of the airbags are buggered the mechanical activation will still work in crash?

Any advice, much appreciated

Re: Airbag warning lights

red air bag warning lamp on means there is a problame,which means the air bag system is disabled,ie air bag does not work if involved in a accident.ring another dealer,and get there opinion,as there is no mechanical only device,they were fitted to tipo,tempra,and siecento's,and they have no warning lamps...................
