Smile AirBag Warning Light Flashes When I Brake

Hello everyone, back again for some more advice, all of which comes in handy all the time, i love this site haha.

Ok, like the title says, the airbag light flashes occasionnaly when i brake.

Say i've been driving for 1 mile and haven't touched them, then i brake it will flash only once, then i might see it again 10 minutes later, sometimes nnot for weeks.

I dont think its anything to worry about untill it stays on but was just wandering what you guys think?

Also the other post i put about a running water noise behind the dash, i am still running the car with the noise everynow and again and like the bloke at the garage said its normal, the car is still running fine.

I await your responses

Cheeeeeerss

There will be a poor connection to the airbag unit or its sensors that are failing under braking force. The common fault is the sensor in the seat (which I think monitors seat position). It's important that you sort this because you are most likely to be braking when you need them.

Water Moving Behind Dashboard = Needing to bleed system

As for Airbags - Is your glovebox - loaded up the eyeballs?
I've heard that sometimes overloading them push's on a wire for the airbag
Dont ask me how tho

Re: AirBag Warning Light Flashes When I Brake

If you decide to check or disconnect any airbag wiring or sensors, disconnect the battery first else you might end up with light permanently on (until reset with a reader device). Don't forget to make sure your radio isn't coded before disconnecting the battery though (or make sure you know the code if it is coded).
