Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I recently failed an inspection on my vehicle because of my air bag. The infl light comes on but does not cut back off. I was told told I have to have this repaired in order to pass my inspection. I have a 1993 Buick Lesabre. I not sure if the air bag is still inside the steering wheel. How much will this type repair cost if i have to have a new bag installed.

Faults within a vehicle's srs airbag system can be complicated to figure out occasionally. You might want to give a call over to the guys at (1-877-388-5887) I found them on the web a couple years ago and I have dealt with them ever since. When it comes to vehicle srs airbag systems they know them inside and out whether troubleshooting, repairing or replacing.
The first thing to do is to scan the SRS computer an dread the codes(s). Then trace down the problem no matter what type of car you have.
i have a 2000 explorer and the air bag light came on and flashed a 3 then a 6. It was a broken wire under the passenger seat. check your wires under the back of both seats, it will have a yellow plug at the end and might be broken at the plug from shoes kicking at it. a dealer will charge you an arm and a leg to replace. just cut the wires and twist together, i shoved mine under the carpet so i never have that happen again
