Intermittent Air bag light on 05 limited. Need help!
Hey guys, not new to Jeep but new to the forum.
Recently picked up a 05 Grand Cherokee limited with the 5.7 HEMI. 63,000 miles.
The problem I am having is the Jeeps air bag light will randomly come on in the dash and also sound off a chime when it happens. (the red symbol on the cluster...not the passenger air bag light).
Some times it will pop on right after you start the Jeep and pop right off, some times it stays on for a few seconds and then shuts back off, some times it will stay on for a few minutes before it shuts off. Sometimes it will come on and shut of 2,3,4 or more times in a 20 miles trip. Sometimes it won't even come on at all!.
I have did alot of reading on forums and haven't been able to figure it out and was hoping someone here could help me pin point the issue.
I have checked all the wiring and connectors underneath the seats (read somewhere to check those areas). I have also seen that a bad clock spring can cause air bag light issues....the problem is I don't have any other issues that might accompany a bad clock spring ( all my steering wheel electrical components are in proper working order...all light and signal and wiper switches work,horn works,cruise works,radio works...etc...etc...).
I cant reproduce the conditions that cause the light to come on....I have tried cranking my wheel from lock to lock,I have tried wiggeling wires under the seats, I have tried bouncing up and down in the seats...etc...etc... It appears to be a totally random thing.
no signs of any previous damage to the Jeep either.
I did hook a scan tool up to the Jeep and found no current codes in the system, I did however when looking through the air bag module section of the scan tool find a stored code of B212C which showed as " Ignition Run/Start Input Circuit open". Again though,this was a stored code and not a active code. So as to if this is even related to the issue or not I don't know. may have been there from another issue long ago for all I know.
I did erase the code from the system though. But the air bag light issue is still present.
I hate running into little gremlins like this that give you a run for your money.
hoping there is someone else here that has had the same problem or is familiar with the issue that can point me in the right direction. It would be greatly appreciated!.
Thanks in advance!
