Air bag light?

I have a buyer for my 2000 viper, I drove it today and the air bag light came on. Any ideas on what it could be before I take it in. Thank's

95% of the time its the clockspring down in the steering column. You will need to put a DRB on it to know for sure.

Not sure what a clockspring costs but if you find that is the problem, call Chuck Tatr. I have one sitting on my shelf I dont need because I run a momo wheel now but I dont think I could part with it unless it is a dumb amount of money for a new one. But the clockspring is good info. The only way to get to it is taking the steering wheel off. JonB may also have one.

just bought one for a 2001 Intrepid for $150.... I assume its about the same for the viper. Be careful of used ones, if someone turned the inner part it will break the little bimetal tab (that is what goes bad in these) For the price of a new one I dont even bother taking a chance with a used one as the labor is about 2 hrs to replace.

No way I would pay dodge to replace one. Buy the part and do it yourself. Remove 2 or 4 bolts and a steering puller does the rest. off in under 15 minutes tops. The clockspring is basicly looking at you when the wheel is off. At least that is how I recall it when I removed my factory wheel/spring a couple years ago.

The viper tax from the dealer is 195.00, I'll be getting one from Chuck at better price than that.

Chuck should be able to shave 20 points of that.

do yourself a favor first. Get the part number and check ebay. Mine looks very much like this one on ebay and I see many for sale on there for much less than the 195 you saw new. It is worth the gamble to me on a car I was selling, but that's me.

I could swear I saw somewhere that the clockspring was a national recall... It went bad in my moms minivan and they said , all vehicles with this clockspring will need it replaced. It was a " fix it if it goes bad " problem. Not an all out "call in all vehicles with it " deal?????

some cars are easier than others, the intrepid I did required me to tear the column down pas the ignition switch, thats why that paid two hrs. You also need a steering wheel puller and you have to make sure to orentate the clock string correctely or you will break the contact

Chilton labor guide calls for 1.3 hrs. to replace the air bag clock spring. If you have the proper tools. It's really not that difficult.

not a flame, but why did you put that steering wheel on? I thought the gen2 viper wheels were actually pretty comfortable, the shifters are a differant story.

It honestly was an aesthetics thing. It is a little smaller and a flat shape across the bottom of the wheel creating much more room to play with the peddles. Cheap mod. 250 for the whole deal.

i had my clockspring replaced a couple of months ago and got the replacement from Chuck, think it was around $200

i was slowly turning in a car park when i heard a noise like a spring unwinding for about 3 seconds, then the airbag liight came on

here a couple of pics









the fix is pretty easy with the correct tools and puller, though you must disconnect the battery under the wheel and leave for about 10 mins to be on the safe side, so that the 'memory' disappears from the airbag, make sure your wheels are pointing dead straight before you remove the steering wheel
