The latch is the side you put the seat belt into.

It's difficult to tell what's going on without a code. This is because the system has so many parts. The air bags, the computer, all the wiring and the sensors can all cause the light to come on. Most parts stores can't read the airbag codes for you.

The car is still safe to drive, but the airbag won't go off if you are in an accident.

Sadly, the best method to save money when the light is on is to have the codes read and then replace the failed part yourself.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

It blink 12 times then two times

this code points to an issue with the passenger side crash zone sensor.

Stand by and I will see if I can come up with a diagram of it's location for you.

Thank you

You're very welcome, it's mounted in the B pillar under the seat belt retractor.

I am sending a diagram to help you locate it.

You have to make sure you depower the airbag system so HERE is a link for that as well.

Please let me know if there is more I can do to help and kindly remember to rate my answer.

Thank you very much!

Do I have to replace the part?

Yes, if you replace it and the light returns the same code, then you will have to have it properly scanned and diagnosed. In case it's a wiring problem. These work off resistance so you can't really do anything to the wiring harness without risking the bags going off.

is there a reset on it any where
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
What’s the name of this part

There isn't a reset, when you make the repair it will reset itself, this part is the passenger side crash zone sensor. You may also find it being called an impact sensor.
