2001 Oldsmobile Alero 2.4L.
Warning lights - air bag readiness light.
Question: My airbag light has come on and I have read in the car
manual that it could mean a problem with the airbag not working
properly in a crash or maybe going off without a crash. My question
is if I pull the airbag fuse will that prevent it from doing any of the
above until I can have it looked at?
Answer: Yes, removing the airbag fuse(s) should prevent the
system from activating during a crash or when not involved in a
crash. The system does have a reserve capability in the control
module, so theoretically, it is possible that the system could
activate. I would suggest getting it repaired as soon as possible.
