Annoying SRS Airbag HELP!!!
« on: December 15, 2012, 02:56:41 PM »
Well, there's nothing to it really.. I just bought an 04 STI recently and it has this Airbag light. It's bugging the #### out of me. Does anybody have the same problem as me? Does anybody have any solutions or suggestions?? Thanks  :subaru:

I'd take it to the dealer to get it looked at ASAP. You might need an airbag in the future.

Yeah, safety items are not something to let go for much of any time before addressing. 
Had the airbag light on on my GC a year or two back. 

Turned out to be the clock spring (electrical connection between the steering wheel and the rest of the car).

Unless you have a full-on race car with removable steering wheel I'd get it looked at.  ;)

I have the same problem with an '04 STi as well. It comes and goes but it seems like it's on more than it's off. I have yet to find a fix for it (haven't really been searching) but apparently it's a fairly common issue, at least from what I've read on iwsti.

I'd bet it is the connection under the drivers seat. My Forester abs light is on and I just push the plug back in tight. Its a known issue and the airbag "may not" deploy in an impact.  I suggest a little dielectric grease when you put it back together.

*I GOT IT*
I've been searching high and low to get rid of that annoying/random AIRBAG light. And YES I've founded the problem and fixed it!!
I ended up checking the Relay Harness/Clip underneath the drivers seat and it wasn't well fitted correctly. You just basically need to tightening it. Then after, reset the ECU by removing the ground cable from the battery for 3-5 mins. CHEERS

Ahhh very good very good, thanks for the update! If mine comes back on I'll have to check this out... should probably just check it anyways.
