    Default Um... Airbag light?... Ghey?

    So... I'm driving home today from work and I notice my airbag light wont go off... Pull up to a red light and shut off my engine... Turn it on again... No turn offy.... Pull up to another Red light... Open and close door... Nope... Get to another red light... shut off engine, engage car alarm, disengage car alarm, turn on engine... Still nope... Get on high way... Drive home... Get try above steps again, yet still no avail. Get on Celicatech.com... And try to look for something to help... Only found one thing on Here that might...



    Anyway... The damn light won't go off... I know it could just be a loose wire, a fuse, or even the airbag mechanism itself... Do you guys have a best case worst case idea of what it might be? Most importantly how much $ will it cost... I've got to get an idea tonight hopefully... I'm gonna go look at it tomorrow... but.... Do thinke the guys over at autozone mght have a similar tool that I can use... I'm gonna check the fuses in the morning, but aside from that I have no idea what to do... Also... How do you check a relay?

    Much help would be much appreciated.

    Yep, that's the tool you need.
    Autozone might have the actual one, but I doubt it.
    Hit up the BGB for checkout procedures.

    FYI, the only way to cancel the light is with that tool. It isn't like the ecu where disconnecting the batter clears it.

    Well... Shit...

    I was kind of hoping not to have to make it... If I find that it's just the fuse and then... I fix that... And it works... Will I still have to make that little thing just to turn the damn light off?

    I made one too after I unplugged my gauge cluster, the airbag light came on. I built that tool, and I was quite surprised it worked. The light's been off ever since, and that was 2+ years ago.

    yeah but say I turn it off... Am I disabling the system?

    Or... What?

    I guess if worst comes to worst I can always get myself a 7 gen wheel and bag... !!!

    You're resetting the code, clearing it from the computer. If it stays off, its likely that it was just a fluke. However, if the light turns back on, its likely that you have a problem. In my case, I know exactly what caused the airbag light to trip, that being I removed my gauge cluster without disconnecting the battery. If it were my car, I'd have it looked at by the dealer if I did not know the reason for the light coming on. But until the dealer either fixes it or you use the tool to clear the code, the airbag light will stay on.

    That tool will also read the code for you......
    So, find out if there's a code, if so, figure what it is, fix it, then clear code.

    Yeah, but does the airbag work?

    Kind of a waste if it's in there......

    I just stopped at the store and got some toothpaste... And it tastes good...

    So... I'ma check it out tomorrow morning... Hope it's just a fuse, if it's not I'll go to Auto Zone and see if they can figure it out... If not... I'll build the tool, check the code, try and fix the problem and reset the MoFu... I'm gonna try disconnecting the battery first though... I mean... Only code 41 is really the only one that won't reset by doing that right? Who know's maybe it's just that simple... Anyway... Like I said, I'm find out if my airbag makes a different for my insurance price... So... If it does then I'll try and keep the system intact... If not... Well... I'll be experimenting with the airbag connector on the new steering wheels.

    You don't need to build a special tool, just ground one wire and then the other (I think it's TC and AB at the diagnostic connector) alternately twice with no time between. The BGB tells how to do it, really easy.

    And to read the codes just ground TC to E1 and read the flashes.

    That's the BGB. Big Green Book. (The factory Toyota manual).

    Click it, you know you want to. Comon, bring it, COMON
