Re: airbag passenger light goes on after 5 minutes of driving

The Air Bag light is on for a reason. The Body computer (BCM) is sensing that one of the sensors for the Air Bag System or (SRS) is not giving the proper information or is not working at all. The only way to find out is to have a qualified mechanic put a scanner on the vehicle to scan the computer for any trouble codes in the Air Bag System.

If any trouble codes are stored in the computer then they need to be diagnosed and repaired properly.

The system should be looked at as soon as possible because the Air Bags may not work in the event of a crash.
