Airbag Alarm

Hello! It's been awhile since I've posted ()..

Recently, while randomly driving down the highway, my Airbag alarm came on.. and than off, than on.. over and over. I did the usual checks, based on research, it does not appear to be a clockspring - the horn and other functions work when the light is on/off. Also, at this point, the light stays on longer but it still shuts off.

I feel that is a connector, but I can't seem to.. find anything. In the 2010 models, only the DRIVER seat has the airbag sensor. I'm thinking there's two things possibly wrong

-- Connection is corroded
-- Sensor is bad

I'm hoping it's #1.. Is there anything I can to fix this without going to the costly dealer?

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.

I have no idea what’s wrong but if I were you I would keep my head out of the line of fire when messing with anything to do with air bags. It could be fatal in certain circumstances. Ideally unhook your battery cables about 20 minutes or so before working on it.

Yep, yep. Already aware of that - I think the fix should be greasing up the connector if I can find it!

Not only is that a good idea to keep it from deploying for some stupid, unforeseen reason, it's also the first thing I'd do to see if it clears.

From my testing, it does not appear to the clockspring. It randomly happened, and nothing was wet or damp. The horn works, along with all the normal functions. I'm wondering if it's something in my seat. I just can't seem to find the connector to grease it up or tighten it.
