I have a Mitsubishi Challanger 1996. It has an srs light on. I have a global scanner and the fault code that it comes up with is 26.0 PT Squib connector. We have replaced the clock spring thinking that this was the cause of the fault. However the code we still cannot erase. If we unplug the clock spring the code 28 comes up. I have looked under the driver seat and unplugged the plug there but it has no effect on the code. Can not see the plug under the passenger seat. Is there anywhere else we can check or do, or is the best thing to take it to a Mitsi dealer for them to plug it into their computer?

WE could at first erase the code but now we cannot. We have changed the clock spring. Made no difference. We have unplugged the plug under the drivers seat and plugged it in again. Can't see a plug under the passenger seat. Found two plugs in the engine bay, one on each side of the engine but these had no effect on the code and came up with other codes which we could erase.

Thanks for this. Not sure if we have fixed the problem. But we have checked the plug under the drivers seat. Played around with the seat. Then tried to erase the code with the scan tool. This time it work and it has stayed off. Your advise will help if this code comes back we know were to check again. Thanks.
Than you and all the best . Kind regards Greg
