Pass NYS inspection with Airbag light on?

I have the dreaded airbag light on that has been good for a few months. Will I fail a NYS inspection if it is on?

Airbag light has nothing to do with the inspection but the airbag light can be three things:

1) Underneath the passenger seat try playing with the harness and see if it's connected properly

2) Clockspring

3) If you have taken out your seats recently have the dealership reset it

Re: Pass NYS inspection with Airbag light on?

from mopar the problem is the "clockspring" also contains the steering angle sensor... last one I priced it was like 58X.XX. Maybe aftermarket has built something where the clockspring. If you know anyone with a scantool to get you the code it will help you narrow the search.

Common problems have been mentioned, I have actually seen wires to the OCM (under the pass seat) damaged so inspect the harness too. usually if its not a constant problem, if its the clockspring you will find it will set when your turning the wheel.
