Need an Airbag Module Reset?
Airbags are essential for the safety of the driver and car passengers, and come in various types. Working to reduce momentum in faster than the blink of an eye, when a crash occurs, the driver and passenger impact on the dashboard, steering wheel or windscreen is reduced. The crash sensors send signals to the Engine Control Unit (ECU) in the event of a crash, where the impact is rapidly analysed on whether the airbag needs to be activated. If so, an ignition works on chemicals to quickly inflate and deploy the airbag. If your airbag has been deployed but your car can be still repaired, our workshop can do an airbag replacement for you. If your airbag light is on but there has not been a crash, we can check this for you, and do an airbag module reset if required.
What is airbag module
The airbag module is the system’s "brain" and stores all the information following a crash. It contains a memory chip, just like a computer, to store crash data, with linkages to seatbelts, airbags, impact sensors and clockspring . Installing a new unit can be very expensive and resetting the airbag module is more pocket friendly option.
Airbag Module Reset
Sometimes, after an accident, the airbags are deployed in addition to the tensioners and seat belts which make the light in the airbag light up. The airbag module then requires resetting so that it can function. This is generally found under the driver’s seat.
A diagnostic computer is used to find out the malfunction in the airbag system. The hard data and crash codes are cleared from the system and reinstalled so that it functions properly again. In addition to resetting your airbag module, we can also carry out an airbag replacement for you.
Airbag Light On?
If your airbag lights are on when there has not been a collision, this could be because of faulty wiring. Possible causes include dampness causing short circuits, or also poor connections with the airbags and seatbelts. We could check out the cause of the issue and have these fixed up for you. This is to ensure that the airbags would indeed be properly deployed should there be a collision.

After my free servicing period for my car, I thought it was time to look out for better priced alternatives. I gave ECV Car Service Singapore a call and tried out their service. It was a hassle free experience and good value. - Kenneth Chin, Buona Vista
I had a tire leak caused by a puncture after driving over some construction debris. ECV Car Service Singapore could fix this up for me so I don't need to spend on a new tire. Friendly workshop! - Mr K.T. Liew, Redhill
My car aircon was not functioning and I was not sure what the cause was. I initially brought my car to the dealer workshop and was told the compressor is down. But the price quoted for the compressor replacement was so high. I then gave ECV Car Service Singapore a call, and the price turned out to be much lower, and quality of service good. Thumbs up! - Joel Tan, Bukit Batok
