Default air bag idiot light staying on

having problem with air bag light coming on and staying lit
at times. made appt. with selling dealer but by the time I
got truck in light had gone out. they checked found nothing.
since I left dealer, light has come back on and off at times.
I have an open service time should light come on and stay
on and I'm close to dealer they said to bring it in, but it
never seems to be on when I'm in the area. anyone else

have not experenced it- but. When that light is on you do not have airbag protection. Have you put any modifications on that you may have disturbed a connection?
Do not wait on this condition!!

They should be able to troubleshoot the issue. I would think it would set a code in the computer. If not they could at least check for loose connections and chaffed wiring.

I agree with Ken, they should be able to check the codes in the computer, if the idiot light is on, there should be a code stored in there, assuming you haven't disconnected the battery recently. Next time it comes on, take it in and have them scan the codes, regardless of whether or not the light is still on when you get there.

Had the same problem with my '05. Light came on at 200 miles. Took it in. Couldnt find anything so they "reset the computer" and shut the light off. Light came on again the next day. Went back in with the light on, they hooked it up and actually got a code this time! They replaced what they called a "clock spring". Something that carries voltage in the steering wheel. 1000 miles since and the light is still off! knock on wood!

I had that problem a month ago. They replaced my wiring harness to the airbag. It took a couple of weeks becuase that part is on back order. Mine would go on 5 mins after driving then turn off after about 20 mins. They replaced these parts 15130066 Harness and 15134117 Modual AB
