Airbag Light is an illuminated indicator that there is a malfunction in the airbag system.
- The most typical reason for the airbag light to illuminate is that the airbag system has been switched off or deactivated. There could be a couple of reasons for this over which you had no control. It may be because the backup battery that operates the airbags may have depleted.
- A crash sensor, SRS module, or other airbag components may be malfunctioning. Alternatively, the sensor in the passenger seat that decides whether or not the airbag should be active could be malfunctioning. Thus, an airbag scanner is required to read and clear the fault codes that trigger the airbag warning light.
Air Cushion Restraint System
The air cushion restraint system is composed of impact sensors that is located in the vehicles' front bumper to deploy the airbags; wherein one of which is mounted in a unique four-spoke steering wheel and the other is installed in the dashboard on the passenger side of the vehicle.
- The passenger-side airbag was a dual-stage airbag, which means the impact sensors are capable of determining the force used to deploy the airbag based on the impact severity
