airbag question
 
hey does anyone know if a airbag plug is removed, then the light goes on, does that mean that all the airbags don't work anymore or just that one particular airbag? mine specifically is the one under the passenger seat. thanks! oh and i searched this topic and couldn't find anything :thumbup:

it's for that specific one. is it the issue where the sensor has gone dead? there is a ebay "resistor" type plug that cancels out the airbag warning. That solved my problem.

If the dealer is too expensive, you call around and ask indy shops.. Or you hop online and do some research.. There's tools you can buy online.. Have you looked up PA Soft?
