When the vehicle is running does the air bag light flash a code? It would be two digits?

no stays on continuously

Expert:  James replied 1 year ago.

The airbag module is controlled by fuse 13 under the hood. Fuse 6 inside the vehicle also controls it. If both of these fuses are good and have power the air bag module may be bad. It would explain why you are unable to communicate with it via scan tool.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
