Question Airbag warning light

My airbag warning light came on today for no apparent reason. I guess I have to take it into the dealer... like I have time for that.

Has anyone had this happen for no reason?

Re: Airbag warning light

Seat belt pretensioner, passenger seat weight sensors are all tied to the airbag system and a problem with any of those things could cause a airbag warning light. Unfortunately it is a complex system and most likely can only be identified at a dealer.

Wow, so if I had a fat passenger next to me, that could have messed it up?

I'm sure when you bring it to the dealer you won't have to disclose that information!!

Re: Airbag warning light

Well, I took it in last week and it was just a loose wire. No big deal.

No, it wasn't "broken". It was just detached and it wasn't caused by a passenger. It just wasn't secured correctly during the build.

Re: Airbag warning light

hey K9, I have the same issue. just picked up my Jeep yesterday and the light kept going on and off, then today it has been on all day long. do you know where exactly the loose wire was? i've jiggled everything below both seats, but haven't seen any results.

Re: Airbag warning light

Re: Airbag warning light

Just took mine in, they said same problem, however it's not covered under my extended warranty, so $315 to replace! Anyone replaced this themselves?
