Supplemental Air Bag Warning Light

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?

Re: Supplemental Air Bag Warning Light

Done.

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.

Re: Supplemental Air Bag Warning Light

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.

Re: Supplemental Air Bag Warning Light

Ahh, so whatever that is wrong that sends a signal to make the light flash also sends a signal to disable the SRS stuff?

Air Bag Light Reset

Originally Posted by bestatchess If you have the airbag light, it will show steady for a few seconds (the manual says 7 secs) after you turn the key from off to on (but not start) and then start to flash. Here is how to reset it:

1. Turn the key from off to on.

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.

3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.

If it does not work the first time, just repeat the steps again.

Re: Supplemental Air Bag Warning Light

TitanSS,

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.

Thanks for the tip!

Re: Supplemental Air Bag Warning Light

Pretty sure seat belts have one hell of a warranty.
They fixed one for me. No questions asked.

the auto guide update is still buggy.
