A 1997 Ferrari 456 GTAThe Air Bag warning light..light comes..module

Customer Question

I have a 1997 Ferrari 456 GTA
The "Air Bag" warning light is sometimes on

When I start the car, if the light comes on, it stays on

The next day it might not light up

Don't want to take it back to Ferrari, they charge a fortune

Ferrari has serviced it several times over the years
They sometimes claim they replace module, sometimes fixed a connection

Can you help ?

Welcome to JA. Working on a fast accurate answer. Your valuable time is important to me. Clicking on Accept is the right thing for my family and I.

jettadan1 :

The sensor may just be bad or connection like you said. You can go to the front cross member and locate the sensors and hold them in better and see if light goes out.

JACUSTOMER-2r03ck0i- :

What do the sensor look like

JACUSTOMER-2r03ck0i- :

How many are should I find

jettadan1 :

little box riveted to the frame. with wiring harnes to it. you will know it cant be anything else.

jettadan1 :

Other wise you will be subject to who ever has a scanner that will read a Ferrari.

JACUSTOMER-2r03ck0i- :

I'll go and see if I can find the sensor

jettadan1 :

two in the front

JACUSTOMER-2r03ck0i- :

Can't find them

JACUSTOMER-2r03ck0i- :

Don't know where to look or what cover to remove

jettadan1 :

the one that is just back from radiator

JACUSTOMER-2r03ck0i- :

I need someone who knows Ferrari and have access to wiring chart

JACUSTOMER-2r03ck0i- :

Is that you ?

jettadan1 :

I dont have a 1997 Ferrari manual but diagnose air bag sensors all the time. If I showed you a diagram of the air bag system it would not show where the sensors are anyway. It would be under sensor locations and may or may not have the air bag sensors location. but they are on the front frame.

jettadan1 :

its referred to as a cross member

JACUSTOMER-2r03ck0i- :

I'll have another look

jettadan1 :

OK

jettadan1 :

On rare occasions they are on the front fender wells
