My supplemental air bag warning light remains flashing while I'm driving my truck. After reading page 2-16 in the owner's manual it says that this is the light that indicates whether my supplemental air bags work as well as the seat belt tensioner.
I can't necessarily verify that the supplemental air bags don't work, but I can definitely verify that the seat belt tensioners are not functioning properly.
I've done some searching on the forums and all the topics I've found deal with just the light being on deal with the aftermath of messing with the front console. I have not touched the front console/added any devices/etc.
My best guess is that it's a short or a loose/frayed wire over to the side, but I don't know where to look for the wire to confirm this.
Anyone have any experience with this symptom and how to resolve it?
I must confess that I'm pretty sure there is a problem and it's not just a faulty light based on the fact that my seat driver's side seat belt is pretty much useless right now, but running the diag to confirm it certainly won't hurt.
i had the same thing happen, it was only a faulty code or something, but when that light is flashing it actually disables the airbag system, i took it too the dealer and they took care of it in 5 minutes.

2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.
Genius! That worked like a charm. I was hoping I wouldn't have to go to the dealer to figure this one out.
I had removed my dash cluster lid to get to the climate control module and I didn't remove the negative cable from the battery first. In fact, I drove my truck around for a little bit with the dash removed. So, of course, that triggered something that set the Supplemental Air Bag Warning Light to go off.
