Anything in the Passanger seat? Have you disconnected anything lately?

Check under both of your front seats and make sure the electrical plugs are fully seated. I believe there is a wire in one of those harnesses which is part of the airbag sensors. Maybe you pushed something under your seat and loosened it by accident.

I believe what you're looking for is probably a TSM (Technical Service Manual). These can be purchased, but are expensive and you're not allowed to post them in the forum, since they are copyrighted material. I would love to find a PDF of one.

Maybe your best bet would be to buy a Haynes manual which might have the info you're looking for. Probably best to go to an automotive store and browse through one to see if it has that particular info.

It looks like they're available for Wranglers up to 2008.

Hey Magoo, what did you ever figure out with this? I might be in the market for a new clock spring myself, and am trying to research it a little...

My airbag light is coming on too, my DTC is an intermittent fault in the front left RAS sensor. Going to take it to the dealer to get it replaced.

Now would be a good time to get a factory service manual. You can get them here. The money you save by doing the work yourself on this one job will pay for the manual. It was well worth the money to me. Mine cost about $144 with tax and shipping.
