I have read through a bunch of the previous postings about the issue and have some stuff to check out, the jeep is not my only vehicle but I do drive it the most. Looking for some feedback before I tear into it.
I have had the Airbag light come on about a dozen times now (about 7 just today). I was aware of tapping the dash to see if that cleared it up but never did immediately so I think I am ruling out the loose connections on the cluster.
since it happened multiple times today I was able to do a little more testing based off the info I had read previously. when the light came on I could not turn the cruise control on (guessing this is normal) the light went out shortly after and i continued on my drive, came back on again and went right back out. I didn't check the horn because I was in traffic and didn't want to be that guy.
After the 3rd time I got the idea to turn the cruise on to see what would happen if the light comes on again and sure enough it did, this time for what seemed about 5 miles but the cruise control worked fine, I was able to set it while the gauges were all froze and tach and speedo at 0
The last few times it came on, I happened to be making a turn shortly thereafter and it seemed as soon as I made the turn the light goes off and cluster is back to normal
my thoughts at this point before I start tearing into it is there is an issue with the clock spring.
If that is the case I noticed there are 2 available, with or without cruise control, I have no use for cruise so could i buy the one for without cruise and just remove the cruise control components?
thanks in advance and sorry about the long winded message
