Air Bag light after sound system installtion.

I finally finished my audio system last night and low and behold the airbag light came on.

I had all four doors apart, the airbag under the steering wheel let go but not unplugged, and the passenger seat removed. I checked the passenger seat harness and it is connected.

This was a multi-day project. It was fine until until the battery was disconnected on the second last day.

Has anyone else had the airbag light magically come on?

Cheers

When you diconnected the passanger seat you unhooked the loop in the SRS system it will need to be reset with a scan tool. There are air bag codes stored in the system that need to be cleared. Don't let the stealership con you into paying them to clear the codes it takes about 2 min to do it.

You may be able to clear the code without a scan tool by disconnecting the negative battery terminal and pressing the brake pedal for about 30 seconds. It worked on my Tundra. Of course you will lose all presets on your audio system.

Or, if you are like me, you knocked one of the sensors in the door loose. Dealer came back to me and asked if I was messing around in the doors to which I responded "I don't know what you are talking about." He said, "Who put in the speakers?" "I did, of course."

doh!

How do you knock the sensor loose? The sensor is screwed to the door.

I've had this light on for a long time now. I'll try the brake thing. If not I'll have them reset it for me.

I was told the plug was loose. I had to have done it since the light was never on until I switched speakers.

It turns out I somehow moved one of the door sensors. Fixed in a couple of minutes.

On another note. According to the dealer if there is an airbag fault that is corrected, the warning light will actually go off automatically however the code will be stored until cleared.

Thanks for the info everyone.
