Airbag light coming on and off at random times. Anyone had this problem?
Hi. I have had my TJ for about 2 years now and had this problem since I got it. The airbag light comes on and all the gauges go dad when the airbag light comes on. Then after a short period of time the light goes off and the gauges are normal. When I went to get it hooked up to a code reader at the dealership and said the light has to be on. I cant predict when it comes on but seems to usually come on more when the road is bumpy. Nothing major happens when its on just that the gauges all read 0 or like when my Jeep is off. Any help would be appreciated.
My 98 does that periodically.
I have found if I tap the dash under the steering column it goes away. So that tells me it has to be a loose wire somewhere.
So one of these days I'm gonna get under there and take the plugs apart and blow out the dust to see if it helps.
Yeah it happens for me every once and a while but my switch to turn off the passenger air bag will start to light up for a split second every couple of months. I just smack where it connects to the center console trim and it goes away.
