Airbag/Seatbelt warning lights

So my heat went out in my WJ last week due to the blower motor controller shorting out. I replaced both the blower motor and the controller yesterday. During the troubleshooting process with my heater, I pulled, what I assumed, was the fuse to the system and reinserted it. Every since then my airbag & seat belt warning lights have remained on. I called my local dealership after reading about some safety recalls on here with those particular systems and they said my WJ wasn't affected. So, I went to one of my local auto parts stores tonight to see if they could pick up any codes that my WJ was throwing. Nothing. The guy said that it wasn't reading a single code. At this point in time I'm stuck. I have no clue as to why those warning lights are still on. Any help or advice would be nice.

Re: Airbag/Seatbelt warning lights

Both the airbag and seatbelt warning lights are switched via the airbag control module. This module has two fuses, fuse 32 and 33 (10A) on the junction block under the steering wheel. Did you check both fuses for not being melted?
Also not all scanners can read the airbag control module faults, so you maybe could try it at an other place.

No I didn't check the fuses. The fuse that I pulled wasn't in 32 or 33, that I remember, and it was a 20A.

Re: Airbag/Seatbelt warning lights

I would start checking those two fuses first, maybe one blew during the trouble shooting. If both ok, then see if you can find the number from the fuse that you removed, that could help in finding out what is wrong.

Fuses 32 and 33 on the junction are spare 10A fuses. I believe I pulled either 19 or 20 which are both 10A fuses as well. Both are still good and not blown. So, yet again I'm at a dead end.

My owners manual says that 32 and 33 are indeed 10A Red fuses for the Ignition Run Start/Only - Airbag. But both 10A fuses are in a yellow clip thing in those cavities and not plugged in directly.

Problem solved Frango100. Both 32 and 33 fuses were not seated into the cavities all the way. Thanks for the help!

That is strange, because the 2004 manual i have mentions fuses 32 and 33 as fused ignition switch output and both are feeding the airbag control module (see attached page). Fuse 19 is feeding the ABS controller and fuse 20 AZC, combination flasher and TRS/solenoid block.
Is the layout of your junction block different then the one here attached?
