We advise our customers to compare the part numbers of their replacement airbag control 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. 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 you send in your original airbag control module from your vehicle. Each module is coded for the VIN of the vehicle it is in.
