Why is my airbag light on, I wasn’t in an accident?

Categories: Airbag Codes, OBD Codes

If your vehicle was NOT in an accident

  • It just turned on
  • The light randomly came on

If the airbag light in your vehicle just turned on without an accident, there
may be an issue with the airbag system computer, or there may be a bad component
within the airbag system. If your vehicle has NOT been
involved in an accident, we recommend you take your vehicle to a body shop or
collision shop to have it scanned to see what codes are coming up. It could be
a bad seat belt or sensor.

If you have a bad, damaged or deployed (locked) seat belt, then we can rebuild
that part.  Start Your Seat Belt Order Today!


Does MyAirbags sell replacement airbag modules?


Yes, we do sell replacement airbag computer modules. 

  1. We recommend that you use the part number that is on top of your module to
    locate replacement module. When you purchase a
    used or new airbag control module it may need to be programmed/configured
    to your vehicle.
  2. Search our OEM SRS Airbag Modules Ready To Ship

When calling to order a replacement airbag computer module, please be prepared
to give our customer service tech representatives the original module part number.
Once we have the original module part number, we will be able to verify if we
have the module in stock to sell you a replacement airbag computer module.

What if I’ve already purchased a new or used airbag module replacement?


We advise our customers to compare the part numbers of their replacement airbag
computer 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. Also, remember:
the airbag module MUST BE FOR THE SAME VEHICLE IT CAME FROM.  If for instance,
the module is for a 2008 Honda Accord, the replacement must be for 2008 Honda
Accord. 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 customers send in their
original modules from their vehicles.  Each module is coded for the VIN
of the automobile it is in.
