Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

This warning lights means the restraint control module has detected a issue. There is now a code stored. This code which is retrieved with a scan tool will tell you where to begin diagnostics so the correct repair is made. Without this code no repairs should even be attempted. While this warning light is on none of the air bags nor the seat belt pretensioners will work.
