airbag light on

we have a 2001 wrangler 4.0 5 speed and recently the airbag light would flash but now stays on constantly. there is also an occasional beep from under the dash when turning the wheel and i am not sure these are related. is there any way to diagnose the problem without a scanner tool?

mine stays on all the time and nothing shows up on the scanner. I have tried the fuses and a ouple of easy fixes but as of right now it still stays on all the time.

let me know if you get it to go off.

I'm also having intermitent issues with the ""Red airbag light comes on AND when it happens all my gauges and cruise control go off""...it keeps running fine and has lights that work..just no dash what so ever. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

It may be your clockspring. If your horn doesn't work either (or stops working in about a week or so) then def. it is clockspring.

Meh, my light has been on since I bought it. The horn works too. I figure it is teh clockspring.

A piece of electrical tape over the light works for me tho.

According to a shop manual...the "clockspring" only controls the power to three things, the Driver's side air bag, the horn switch and the cruise control bottons, so I'm sure that is not what is taking down my dash guages. Then again, I could have two different things happening at the same time and the clockspring may be one issue. The next time the red Airbag light comes on I will immediately check the horn and cruise control...if all three of them are dead then we have a winner on the Airbag ....but I'm still at a loss on what is killing the guages.
