The Air Bag light is always on on my 2004 Honda Element. It’s related to my dog getting sick down the seat belt mechanism. Here are the details:
My dog broke into my Dad’s pantry and ate a carton of ramen noodles (including the flavor packet) and a big box of raisins. (which are toxic for dogs). I then had to drive 7 hours home to Vermont in my 2004 Honda Element with my dog who got sick in the car. It was a big mess! It went everywhere- including down the seat belt locking mechanism. I washed and scrubbed down the inside of the car, used lavender for the smell and cleaned the seat belt mechanism with Q-tip swabs and rubbing alcohol. The car is clean but the air bag light is continually on. My car won’t pass inspection with this and they say it is related to the seat belt mechanism.
They quoted $200 on the low end if it’s a seat belt replacement and $1,500 on the high end if they have to replace some sort of computerized system related to the air bag.
