Help Needed: Airbag Light On after Driving with PF Seat Out

Hey folks, I got my JKU back from Rhino lining today... slammed all my interior stuff back in (less the carpet, of course) and the airbag light won't go out now that the seat is back in.

I am trying to avoid the dealer. Any ideas on what to do???

I did a quick search, but everything I found talked about the clock spring. I disconnected the battery for 20 minutes. That didn't do anything.

Thanks in advance.

Does your horn still work? If so then it is not the clock spring.

I know it seems stupid but did you plug the seat back in underneith? If you didn't it wont arm the airbag.

My air bag light comes on after I slide the passenger seat forward and stays on for a while.... think its a loose wire ....check all your connectors...

Itís time to reevaluate the way we coddle the future generation. Making mistakes and getting hurt is how you grow. Teaching kids to fear Pop Tarts is how you promote xenophobia. Letís get it together, America.

I'm about to go to the store to get some flex loom. I'll check the horn.

Yea, there are two plugs. One for heated seats and one for the airbag.

I reseated the plugs several times and it didn't help.

Well, the horn works no problem. Reseated all the cables again. Still no love.

I found a rest option where you hold the trip reset button and turn the key on. The reset went through okay, but the light is still on. Guess its going to the dealer.

Mine did the same after going too deep in a creek with no doors. It is a bad module for the passenger airbag disable function. Dealer asked if I wanted it fixed, but I like to play in the water too much to fix it.

LOL that sounds like a plan to me. I have forged a few streams in my day, but I keep my doors and top on when wheeling. I've been lucky so far. No leaks. I'm shocked the drain plug never pushed up into the cab from the pressure either.
