Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. When the light comes on without flashing codes it usually means the Electronic crash unit/airbag module has failed. At this point you will want to try and check codes with scan tool. If still not able to access any codes Check the power feeds to the Electronic Crash Unit on pin 2 Violet/Orange (VT/OG) from fuse 13 in the interior fuse panel and pin 17 Orange/Yellow (OG/YE) from fuse 16 in the battery junction box. Check for grounds on pins 12, 21 and 22 Black/Orange (BK/OG). If all are good then replace the airbag module. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
