Q: Can you reset my module if my vehicle has not been in an accident and airbags never deployed?

A: We can reset your airbag control module. But, we recommend that you first have it scanned to see what caused the light to come on the first place. It could be a bad airbag, seat belt or sensor. When you get the module back and if those parts/components are still bad then it will cause airbag light to come back on. If the module is water damaged or just failed on its own then we do have replacement parts in stock. We recommend that you locate the part number that is on top of your module. Then you can look in our Inventory to see if we have on in stock. Parts In Stock & Ready to Ship

 

Q: When purchasing another replacement module, do part numbers have to match?

A: Yes, Airbag control module part numbers need to match. Then some vehicles are VIN specific. So, first the part numbers need to match. Then if the airbag light continues to stay on then you may need to have it additionally programmed to your VIN of your vehicle. If your vehicle was in an accident we recommend that you send your original module to be reset. This way when the original modules is re-installed back in the same vehicle it will not need any additional programming to the VIN at the dealer. See our Airbag Module Reset Service

 

Q: Can you repair a damaged airbag control module (water or flood damage)?

A: No, we recommend a replacement module. See our inventory for Parts In Stock & Ready to Ship

 

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 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 bad seat belt, then we can rebuild that part.

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.
