Let me start off by saying I did a search and while stuff came up on Airbag light, nothing helped. The search on this forum is weird!
I have a 2005 WK, the other day my airbag light chimed on and has stayed on since. When I start the car it chimes, goes away, then comes back on and stays on. I think this has happened to me before and after taking it to the dealer they said I had something stuck under my seat and that was it, talk about feeling like a moron Nothing under seat now, can I go to like pep boys and have removed or do I have to go to the dealer? On a budget and I know the dealer will charge me 100+ just to turn it off.
Same happened to me as well. Did you check way under the seat? You might be surprised what you can find under there. Look under both front seats. Mine was caused a few times, sometimes by the smallest items that barely touch the underside of the seat. Good luck. Otherwise, you might have another issue. Get it checked, b/c whenever that light is on, the airbag will not deploy from what I understand.
Any solution for those/ what the dealer charged? Its happening to mine now. Its really annoying. At first I thought it was rain related, something shorting out. Then it did it today and it hasn't rained recently. Really annoying. Light comes on about dings, stays on thirty seconds or so and goes out comes back on a any where from 15 seconds to 2 minutes later.
So I took it to the dealer. They pulled the code, found it was coming from a module under the center console. They pulled my center console cleaned everything reseated all the contacts, flashed the computer and put it back together. So far so good. We'll see if that's a permanent solution. Only cost an hour of labor.
Is this the passenger airbag light or the one in the gauge panel? My passenger airbag light has recently been turning on and it's pretty irritating. I heard someone say that I needed to get the seat weight sensor recalibrated or something.
So it came on again today. I pulled the center console apart and found a connector that was half off practically. I also found the plastic trim has some plastic wall hanging down that isn't really necessary and is rubbing on the connecter. I taped the connector in and the light hasn't come on. I plan on getting the roto tool and cutting a section out of that. I'll take pics and post.
You can also zip tie connections, I do it on high vibration applications like race cars and anything flimsy :-) Run the zip tie between the wires on each connection pulling the connections together. Also use some dielectic grease if it would ever possibly get wet.

If a conservative is down-and-out, they think about how to better their situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of them.
My 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee air bag light was coming on as well and staying on. I was told by a Non-Chrysler garage that it was something to do with the passenger seat belt safety retraction or something. Well that was a bunch of B.S. because all i did was got under the passenger seat and wiggled the wire connection and that solved my problem.
Mine has starte coming on while accelerating. Then goes back off about 15-30 secs later. Only thing I've done lately is change profiles with my Flashpaq from Econ to 87 perform. I don't think it's that, but just to eliminate the possibility I'm gonna change it back to Econ when I get home.
Without fail- I accelerate from a stop or low speed, and ding! Annoying little light isn't it!
