Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to assist you today and please remember to rate my answers with a good rating .Unfortunately the air bag module needs to br replaced after deployment of any of the air bags or seatbelt pretensioners .The module uses a sort of fuse inside that isn't serviceable by techs .Once you replace the module all codes are self clearing if there aren't any other issues with the system
Replacing is an expensive option. What about the people from myairbags.com claiming that they could reset the airbag module ? In your opinion, what actually that they do for this resetting service ? Also, my brother had an S2000 Honda that had an airbag deployed. The airbag light turned on. I sent the module to the myairbags people for resetting. After receiving back the module, I installed this one back per their instruction. And it worked. The airbag light no longer on. In your opinion, what it is actually in this S2000 case. Please help. Thank you.
Obviously, replacing the deployed airbags had been done.
Repairing the modules is actually illegal in the states and I'm not sure of the credibility of myairbags.com so I really couldn't suggest to repair it .In my experience I have however replaced the modules with used ones from wrecker yards but never a repaired one .You don't want to run the risk of getting into an accident and not have your airbags deploy so if your looking for economy you can try LKQ.com which will deliver to you .Hope this helped .
What it is that is not the hardware being repaired. Instead, it is the software of the module being reprogrammed, erasing the crashed data. Think about your computer having a virus. And you have to run an antivirus program to remove it off. This is how I understand their service.
By the way, I have a 1996 Toyota Tacoma, and a strange rattling problem. The car always rattles as soon as I take my foot off the gas pedal, be it while deceleration or while at a stop light. As soon as my foot press on the gas pedal, and as long as it is so, there has never heard of the rattle. Also, the rattle noise is inversely proportional to the age of the engine oil (louder with new oil, softer when the oil is 2 weeks old). I have searched and sought opinions many times, and over and over again, but none seems able to escaped the loop of this rattling problem.
If valve clearance, then why not even harder at higher speed.
If hot spot making knocks, then why not harder at higher speed. What would you think ? This rattling noise has been annoying me for at least 5 years. Otherwise, the truck runs like a champ, continuously 200 miles,with cold ac, at 70 mph is a norm for it. Thank you.
Hello boxer! I am resting the air bags issue. Could you give me some insight into the rattling noise from my 96 Toyota Tacoma. I definitely want to fix the problem, straight to the heart of it. Different mechanics have different opinions. And so, I am afraid to spend the money and the problem is still there. Please help. Thank you.
