also had the same problem with a 2006 model. followed the above and the light is now off. fingers crossed. also removed anything near the seats that was magneticI got a 2005 model and had the same problem.
It started one day when I folded the passenger seat forward to make room for a large plant pot in the back.
The light came on and stayed on.
I was advised that the seat belt pre-tensioner might need a dealer adjustment or the dealer's computer was needed to reset an ECU diagnostic code.
The fix was simpler, and less expensive than that.
It took me about 6 days to realize that something under the seat became disconnected.
I moved the seat to the most forward position and put the seat back upright.
Whatever was disconnected, perhaps the airbag seat weight sensor reconnected and the light immediately turned itself off.
I've had to fix more clocksprings than impact sensors, if that answers your question.Would the air bag light more likely come on because of impact sensor or clockspring?
Just now I went and looked at the two front sensors. They were both pointing forward........but one was facing up and and one was facing down. Is that going to cause problems? The passenger side has manufacturer and arrow on the upside. The driver has the label facing the road.I've had to fix more clocksprings than impact sensors, if that answers your question.
But there really isn't any point in guessing. You can't switch the airbag light off without a having access to a suitable diagnostic scan tool. Since you're going to need the scan tool anyway you'd be as well to use it to read the trouble code to begin with. Then you'll know for sure which circuit it is that is causing the light to stay on.
No, that's how they are supposed to be.one was facing up and and one was facing down. Is that going to cause problems?
