Toyota Sienna owners have reported 125 problems related to air bag light on (under the air bag category).
The airbag light began blinking. I took it to the dealership for a diagnosis and was told that both air bags would need to be replaced at a cost of nearly $1,500. Our Sienna only has 86k miles on it and has not been in an accident. From my research, this air bag problem with this particular vehicle has garnered several complaints. It is my opionion that this is a known issue at Toyota and should be subject to a recall.

Airbag light on. Dealer says a tiny plastic piece is missing. Toyota doesn't make a plastic piece replacement (probably less than $1) so instead I have to pay about $3000 for an entire new wire harness.

Tl - the contact owns a 2006 Toyota Sienna. While attempting to drive the vehicle, the air bag warning indicator illuminated. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified. The failure mileage was 79,529. Jcc.
Airbag light came on so I took my car to the Toyota dealership. I was advised that my airbag wiring harness system needs to be replaced. The van has 79k miles and it was only covered for 3 years/36k miles. How is an unused airbag defective? where is the consumer safety? should be a lifetime guarantee especially since the airbag was unused. Why should my family be at risk for the product that hinders its usability for the purpose for which it was designed for.
Air bag light started blinking when car started and stayed blinking. Brought in to dealer and comments were "open in side. Squib rh circuit" and "needs pass. Side front seat airbag" for $865. Same issue seems true for 2007 Siennas online. Light stopped blinking and has not recurred.

The air bag light comes on as expected when the van is started. Then instead of going out, it flashes the entire time the car is on. This happens intermittently. Sometimes if the van is shut off and restarted, the light will go out. But then a couple days later, it will flash again. I have no idea whether or not my airbags would actually deploy in the event of an accident. Research shows that this is a known issue that has happened to many other people. Repairs are expensive for van owners and the issue returns after repairs. Please consider an investigation of this issue. There are those of us who cannot afford thousands of dollars to even attempt to fix our vans, and we have no choice other than to drive our families around in unsafe vehicles with our fingers crossed that we don't get in an accident. Thank you!.
I started up the van and the airbag light is blinking. I tried to unplug and replug yellow connecter put did not go away.
The src airbag (curtain/side airbag) malfunction indicator went off. It has been below of recently. When I googled it, some people pointed it out to the yellow harness under the front seats. I wiggled it a little as some people suggested and the indicator light went away (I don't know if it may come back again). This is a major safety concern to me. Anyone could easily break the hardness when they pull the tray under seat. Or a car accident when your shoe could accidentally kick the hardness and break it, preventing the side airbag from deploying. It has to be a better way to protect the hardness. Especially here in minnesota with below of the hardness get too cold and may become brittle.
The airbag light comes on and stays on when the vehicle is turned on. If the vehicle is turned off then back on, sometimes the light turns off. Other times, moving the connectors under the front seats causes it to turn off.

Flashing air bag indicator light, 4 TSB's have been issued for this problem with a replacement part. The TSB's are e1001-08, TSB 0069-12, TSB 0162-10, and TSB 0252-08. This is a major safety problem that Toyota is refusing to recall and correct. The NHTSA needs to make a manditory recall for defective Toyota Sienna airbag wiring. Toyota dealership is demanding $50 to read code and average repair cost of more than $1000 dollars. This vehicle has never been in an accident of any kind. There is no reason that the airbags should have a defective condition so soon. There is obviously a manufacturing problem with the system which is why Toyota redesigned the part. Toyota cannot be allowed to charge customers $1000's of dollars to replace this essential safety equiptment.
Airbag light comes on due to faulty wiring harness (or location). According to manual this means that the airbag(s) turn off as the occupancy sensors do not work properly. The wiring harness itself is located where I put my left foot when sitting on the passenger side with the seat pushed back. It is a bad design that endangers lives. Recommend a recall.
Air bag lights came on for no apparent reason, after a month it still blinks.
One morning, just a regular morning as always, I got into my car to drive to work, turned the car on, and the airbag light came on. It continued to flash the whole time I was driving. It has been flashing ever since, every time I drive this car. There was no accidents or any funny business, just out of the blue it started flashing.
Our van has a srs airbag light that flashes for no reason at all. We have not been in an accident or had any incidents with this vehicle. It has under 25,000 miles on it. I believe this issue should be addressed, it appears many others have had similar issues. I am worried about the safety of myself, husband and 3 children. Toyota please take responsibility for the airbag sensor problems and help keep our families safe. You would if it was your family!.
The airbag indicator light comes on and flashes. This is a known problem with Toyota yet they choose not to issue a recall. Cost to fix it may exceed $1,500-$2,000. As this is a safety issue, a recall should be issued. Toyota service bulletin t-sb-1062-10.
Upon starting up the vehicle the drivers side airbag indicator began blinking instesd of going out. Called dealership who said it would be $60-$115 just to look at it and he couldn't imagine what it was. After looking online and seeing the high cost of repair and the number of complaints I will be taking to an independant mechanic to get his thoughts. Vehicle has not been in an accident so I do not feel as if this is a component that should go bad. And if it does the consumer should not have to pay for repair as this is a safety component.
My airbag light came on. I took it to a Toyota dealership for repair. They ordered the part, but then also informed me I needed a new water pump. I had the water pump repaired, then several weeks later the airbag part came in, but I didn't have the money to have it repaired. I still have the part. Now there is a recall on some Toyota models, but I did not find a recall specific to my vehicle. I think my vehicle should maybe be included in this recall. What do I need to do? I do not have the money to have the airbag part installed and repaired. Just let me say I love, love, love my 2006 Sienna. I will keep it until it dies.
Our srs airbag light has come on and will not go off. We have had no accidents in this vehicle. We have gotten a cost estimate to fix this problem and it is well over $1000. We have read online that there are numerous accounts like this that have not been taken care of by Toyota. What should the consumer have to pay for faulty wiring and be in danger of their srs systems not working properly?.
Air bag light began flashing. Dealer scanned airbag system code and found b0111 open side squib circuit. There was an open connector on the passenger side wire harness for air bag. Dealer replaced connector and wire kit, installed new connector and soldered wire to existing harness and installed new corrugated tubing. This resulted in a $523 charge.
When starting the vehicle the air bag light begins blinking and will not go out. Based on online information I determined that the harness under the passenger seat may be faulty. I unplugged the harness and replugged it and the light went out. After a few hundred miles the blinking light returned. The vehicle is out of warranty and too expensive to fix. It appears that there are many people with the same issue. Please check into the airbag problem on this vehicle.
Air bag light on dash started blinking and has continued blinking whenever vehicle is operated.
