Would an air bag warning light that is on cause a failure for the state inspection?
Yeah, I think it will. Why is the light on?
It's a common problem on the 90-97 Miatas where the module fails or there's a bad capacitor on the circuit board. PITA to replace since you have to remove a good portion of the dash / steering column area
black duct tape FTW
I'll just pull the bulb, worse case scenario.
Yeah, and then either fix it later, or jst live with it. Does this little fault keep the airbags from working proberly, or does it just trigger the light? Because if the airbags aren't working, you might want to get that fixed. Aslo, there's a chance that the ECU has the airbag light code on it, and the inspection station will see it when they plug in, but if you are OBD I, I doubt that will happen.
I think others have pulled the bulb and have passed, so chances are it won't be an issue. With the light on and a faulty module, the air bag won't fire.
a friend had the same problem with her 2000 miata...bad news...it didnt pass. Even if you pull the bulb, the machine will still pick it up because it will take readings from teh ECU. Might be different in your county tho.
