A friend of mine claims that he drove with his airbag light on for a couple of months & when he traded his car in the mechanic pulled it into the garage & the airbag activated. Is this possible? This is on a 94? Chrysler product (sedan) tia
Do you

Well it could be possible. But whats the chances of it happening right after he got rid of it. Can see going down road hitting big bump and setting it of.
If your friend is known to BS alot then thats what it might be.

The last part of your answer may tell the tale. Another fellow claims if the light is on, the airbag is inoperable. Is he right?

Why u asking ur airbag light on? U sound worried?
The light is telling something is wrong but doesnt mean that it doesnt work. And we dont want to hit a tree to find out. Id check air bag fuses if there is any, any wiring that might be involved with front sensors or air bag its self. Or if u dont what airbag going of on for no resoon just pull steering cover off and unhook it.

I rushed threw all the answers but did anyone say clockspring? If so forgive me? There was a recall on the clockspring about 4 months ago. Call a chrysler dealership and ask if it covered your car. And if the dumb butt working on it didn't remove the positive cable to the battery and wait for five, i'm sure he did get a face full of airbag. He is lucky it didn't brake his hand!
