AirBag light

My air bag light has been coming on and then going off. making the car ding whenever we drive it.

last night the light stuck on and will not come off.

is this a normal problem? has anyone else had this happen?

i'm still under warrenty, but i do not live anywhere near a dealer. i'm going to have to take a day off to get this fixed.

If you have an aftermarket stereo it could be the wiring harness. If not, it's probably the airbag sensors in the seat, but could be something else in the airbag system. Dealer fix.

Is it happening when someone's in the passenger seat? If it's a passenger seat issue, you may need to get the weight sensors on the seat recalibrated. They would have to hook up the Starscan and place a weight on the seat that distributes weight to different parts of the seat.

it doesn't matter if someone is in the seat or not.

Which light comes on? The one by the gauges or the passenger airbag light by the radio?

Are you anywhere near an AutoZone or someplace that will read codes in the computer for free?

Get Lost...Did you ever find the cause or solution to this? I am having the same problem but my dealer is blaming it on the rear camera I added and told be if I return with the camera still installed he will void my warranty (long story that I will be posting about this a hole in problems with dealer service later. Even thought the scan shows it is has lost communication with the control module (several things). The airbag light (same as yours) comes on for about 3-5 sec. and then goes off. On one trip it stayed on for 3 hours and another time 1 hour with my daughter sitting on the front seat. My dealer will not fix anything and now says the rear camera is the cause of everything. The other times it has come on for a few sec. there was no one sitting up front.
