you will need to have this scanned for the fault code...most likely cause is a bad clock is the piece inside the steering column directly behind airbag and steering wheel is a high wear part -turning with every movement of the wheel-if this information has been helpful please remember to use the green accept button - thanks ,let me know if i can assist you further

that is not the air bag code ...the flashes only alert to a failure - it will need to be hooked up to a scanner...not a generic code reader as the later only carry powertrain information
