Airbag light just turn on one day?

If your vehicle was NOT in an accident

  • It just turned on
  • The light randomly came on
  • My vehicle was in an accident

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 watch the accompanying tips and tech video and have your module scanned by a body shop tech before mailing your airbag module to us.

 

 

Yes, my vehicle was in an accident

If you know your vehicle was in an accident, then MyAirbags can absolutely help you and reset your airbag module. We provide Reset & Return service to reset airbag control modules. If your vehicle was in an accident, we recommend that you send your original module to us for reset to avoid additional trip to the dealer for coding. Most of the late model cars will have partial VIN stored in the airbag control module. If your vehicle has NOT been involved in an accident.

  1. We recommend that you have your vehicle scanned by a body shop to see what code you have.
  2. If they tell you that the airbag module is bad and not because of an accident then we do provide replacement srs airbag control modules.
  3. 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.
  4. Search our OEM SRS Airbag Modules Ready To Ship

 

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.
