Air Bag Light

The information system air bag light on our 1997 Grand Caravan with 160K has just started staying on after the inital 8 second check at start up. Can the cause be easily and safely checked?

Most likely, the clockspring is bad. There was a recall for this. To check if the recall was done on your van already, enter the last 8 digits of your VIN here:

Thank you NTBo for the recall lead and subsequent solution to our problem. Our dealer replaced the clockspring under the recall at no charge and the light is out. You techies do a wonderful job of solving problems of thousands of car owners. Keep up the good work.

You’re welcome, and thanks for letting us know the outcome.
