    Airbag Light- Intermittent

    Hey all...searched the forum and didn't really see a solid fix for the airbag light coming on and off while driving.

    I did see an older post on another board saying there is a possibility of some resistors on the circuit board being out. I can go there if I cant figure any other troubleshooting steps first.

    I just had the airbag recall done yesterday by the dealer, hoping that was the solution, but it was not. Seeing if anyone has actually fixed this issue without pulling the bulb for the light itself :-)

    Thanks!

    Airbag Light- Intermittent

    My airbag light has been on constantly for a couple of years. I had the same thought as you: that the air bag recall would take care of it. No dice. Dealership told me the “occupant restraint module” needs to be replaced. They wanted $500 or something, parts and labor, to do it. It’s a $180 part, but the dealership told me it needs to be “calibrated” and replacing is not just plug and play. Who knows. I don’t really believe them. Anyway, I’ve just lived with it.

    Airbag circuits can be really sensitive. Sometimes even a dirty connector under a seat will cause enough resistance to set a code.

    Can I just swap in the new module and be on my way, or will something (literally) blow up in my face?

    You're signature says Cherokee is this happening on that or a JK? As you mentioned airbag recall.

    I just recently had the same issue. Intermittent light and chime. While in for the airbag recall they checked the clock spring. This was the cause and it was covered under the FCA clockspring extended warranty. Could be this.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
