I've been trying to find a definitive answer, but I haven't yet.

I have a vehicle that I need to get inspected in NH and the airbag light is on. Can someone tell me for certain that I can/will pass NH inspection with that light on?

Thanks,
John

well, I found the answer to my own question but figured I would post the answer here for everyone else.

I called the registry of motor vehicles in NH and asked the inspection department if my car would fail because the airbag light was on:

I was told "no that if would not fail inspection" EXCEPT if the vehicle had a salvage title.....if it has/had a salvage title then airbag light would need to be off.

hope this helps anyone else that is questioning this in the state of NH.

Let all know if in fact you do get an inspection sticker with the airbag light on.

Just to update terminology. The Registry of Motor Vehicles is in Massachusetts. In New Hampshire it's called the DMV - Department of Motor Vehicles - or Department of Safety.

In other states where the Air Bag light is on, the vehicle will fail. Mass and Maine come to mind.

From personal experience from what i learned, if one needs to have the air bag light OFF to pass inspection, it is very expensive as is over $100 to diagnose what is wrong, and over $1000 to repair.
Also, the air bag light bulb is the best bulb on earth. The bulb will never burn out even after years on being on.

How did it go?

You'd do better to ask this question in the Florida forum, not NH.

Our car, 2004 Honda Pilot had the light come on and the problem ended up being the seat belt and not the air bag and it has a lifetime guarantee so no cost.

If it is a Honda, definitely take it to a dealer and find out what the problem is. I had an ABS light come on, and took it to a local Honda dealer. They checked the code, and pinpointed the problem to a seat belt latch. They ordered the part, and three days later they installed a new seat belt latch at no charge. It only took about a half hour. Either way you should get the problem taken care of. I also had my recalled airbags replaced free of charge.

You would rather get impaled on the steering wheel if you have an accident than have the airbag fixed? Think!
