Re: Airbag light stays on!

check the wiring under the seats, make sure there is nothing under the seat that is putting negative weight on the seat.... I have seen a couple recently where I believe there to be a pin problem at the yellow 2 pin connector under the drivers seat... one specifically had the driver pretensioner replaced and the code came back like 6 months later, I got it the second time around and when I moved that connector the code went stored, ultimately I just inspected the pins and repositioned the harness and suggested further diag if the code came back.

Re: Airbag light stays on!

So I got the codes read and i keep getting B212D, I cleared it and it comes right back up.

any ideals to what could be causing this error code?
Thanks

Re: Airbag light stays on!

Alright, after months of trouble shooting this I have finally fixed the problem.....

I blew a trailer hook up fuse(10 amp) i took a fuse from the labeled slot "spare fuses"

well it really wasnt a spare fuse slot.... replaced it and boom the light went off!!!
so all in all when jeep says "spare fuses" they really are not spare fuses!!!!

Re: Airbag light stays on!

Thank you for this detailed trouble shoot. Last weekend I was wiring a new trailer and as result shorted out those 10 amp fuses you referred too and used the "spare" fuses provided on my 2007 Jeep Commander 4.7. I too got a solid airbag warning light and was worried I'd shorted something else in the system. One additional note, after replacing the "spare" fuses, be sure to seat the yellow holder all the way down. It will lock in above the fuse box which makes sense if they are just spare fuses. Once properly seated, the airbag light went off. Kudos for the diagnosis and saving me a bundle of time and money.

Hi, we have jeep cherokee 2010 and had the same problem, after towing a trailer, airbag lights been on. so we took to the service and they said there is a problem with side airbag sensor in driver sit belt, so need to replace whole sit belt as airbag sensor is together with belt and they ask $700 for that. Now is off, but it going on/off.
