Air Bag Light
Air Bag Light. What a
pain! Every time I talk out my instrument cluster, my air
bag light always comes on and I would pay a local body to reset
it for $20. After few times, it started to get expensive.
Finally got some help from a good internet friend our my Earl
http://www.lexls.com He has lots of great DIY and
Tutorial articles on the Lexus LS400. I read his site and
got some idea how I can make this easier for me.
Basically to reset the Air
Bag Light (ABL), you need to provide ground or negative to the
TC and AB into the OBDI slot inside of your car need the fuse
box. So, I made this during my lunch hours. I used a
car phone charger and use it as ground. I also got a
Momentary Switch that will control either left or right.
Center is off. I solder those three wires together so I
can perform the TC & AB dance via the switch. Here are
With Red and Orange wire
connected to the TC and AB.
Here is the
instruction from Earl site
Personally, I found one
second interval did not work well. I found out switching
from left to right at a fast pace like .25 to .50 second seem to
do the job.
Currently I am trying to
find an old OBDI plug and a relay that will automatically switch
it when power is given. This unit is home made and you can
do it yourself. If you would like to borrow this, please
