Lightbulb Warning Lights - What is issue ?

Hey guys, sadly after 17 years of having my car some loser was not paying attention and smashed into the back of my car while I was sitting at a red light. Insurance company is now arguing with me about the dash lights that are coming up - I say they are due to accident because nothing was wrong up until I was hit. The ABS and Airbag are my current safety concerns, is the car still safe to drive ?

I'd like to know what these codes mean in terms of my car:

Airbag(1) 0003 Power Supply

Alarm System (10) 33 Passenger Compartment monitoring system
Alarm System 0000 End of Output

ABS (1) Abnormal 4460 Pressure Sensor

Instrument cluster (1) 9150 Spoiler Control

Scott phone the dealer and they will tell you what these codes mean. The service manager is Ted Rose and he is very helpful. If you need more help maybe I could help you out as I have a PST 2 for reading codes.

You might try getting a statement from the dealer that an impact would indeed cause those type of alarms for the insurance claim. Along with a dealer estimate for repair.

I was just tapped in the rear once no damage but I was sore back pain, which indicates any sharp jar could affect internals. Airbags work off jar sensors I think.

I was rear ended and it took $4,200 to put it back together properly. Negotiating with insurance companies is a give and take. Ask for more, settle for less.

Are you dealing with your insurance or theirs? I was able to deal directly with theirs and just kept the pressure up on them. A couple of my back is still not feeling good, maybe I should go back to the doctors phone calls got their attention for me.

I spoke to an attorney and she gave me some ideas on how to approach them for the medical claim side. She and I feel like I made the best of the situation money wise.

I got rear ended in my first 986. About a 20mph collision. Didn't look like too much... nearly 20k to fix properly. If the chassis is damaged at all, it will most likely total the car $$$$ wise.

Did it set off a air bag any where in the car? Check the seat-belt in the passenger side. Try a reset see if it just goes away.

No air bags were deployed. However, I am getting the airbag warning light and ABS warning light. I understand since the spoiler is crushed so that's why that warning light comes up. I bring the car to body shop next Monday so we'll see what they do.

I find it hard to believe that the rear coalition damaged your air bag, ABS and alarm system. Sounds more like a blown fuse to me.
Also. Did you try to erase the codes , and they came back?
