A blinking airbag light usually indicates that one of the airbag sensors or the airbag connectors is unplugged. Other than a detail, what other work was performed? Was anything disconnected?

The detail shop found that my sunroof drainage line was slightly plugged causing there to be water on the interior passenger floor. The detail shop pulled the rug and removed the passenger seat. They may have disconnected it and not put it back together?

It sounds like maybe they didn't plug the occupancy sensor on the passenger seat back in. There is a sensor in the passenger seat cushion that tells the air bag computer whether there is someone sitting in that seat so that the airbag knows whether to deploy in an accident. If there isn't anyone sitting in that seat, the airbag on that side isn't supposed to deploy. If they didn't plug the sensor back in it would definitely cause the airbag light to blink.

You can know for sure which sensor is not connected using a scan tool to check the computer for fault codes if you have one available.
