Don't be shocked if it comes back. I chased an airbag code on a car once and it ended up being the wiring. The SRS module expects to see a certain resistance value for each sensor and airbag. You can have too much resistance in the wiring and that will throw a code. It would go away and come back, especially during hot days (due to the temperature coefficient of copper, the higher the temperature the higher the resistance).
Also, may not be related but there is a recall on WJ airbag modules. It applied to my 04 and they put in a new module. To see if it applies to you, run your VIN:

OK, so just to sort of close this thread out- A day after I cleared the code above with my scanner, it came back. It was off for a full day or so. I cleared it again, and it hasn't come back. It's been over a week now. So, not sure exactly what the deal is, but my light is off and has stayed off, and I did nothing to the sensors at all.
But the scanner I bought does clear the code, and it was $99 on eBay...

Latest update- Re-scanned the codes last night, and I got 2 things- 1, P1000 code- which I think is just an overall OBD status not ready, from what I read. Also, it said "Right front impact sensor internal 1". I cleared the code, and then the scanner said to re-check to confirm the code was deleted. I did than, and it came up with no codes.
That's different than when I scanned the other night, as it said more than one impact sensor was having trouble. My plan was to find the sensors and re-seat the connectors, but it was dark by the time the wife got home and I didn't have a chance to do that.

first I gotta say BE CAREFUL working with SRS.
Blindly clearing a code, as applicable - be sure to copy any info down, copy ALL codes, freeze frame. Sometimes we can use the erase to do a second test ( second opinion) on the system -
SO you did the second opinion and we get the same SRS light. SO tell us what the scanner reports ALL codes, or messages.
The connectors under console are you guessing OR mentioning for a reason?

|broncoguy80125||Well, it looks like success- so far. I was able to clear the code with my new scanner, and when I started the car, it did not come back on. The wife drove it to church tonight, so we will see if it has come back on when she returns. The scanner I used was the Foxwell NT630 Elite. Got it off of eBay for $99. More to come.|

|broncoguy80125||Got my scanner last night but haven't had a chance to hook it up yet. It's not an Innova. I'll let you know if I'm able to clear the light...|

|mxer201||I recently re-seated both connectors to the air bag module under the center console. I noticed one was not fully seated but it is now. Air bag light turned off a second or two after turning the ignition on and seems to be fine now.|

These are interesting Chrysler/DRBIII links:
This PDF shows the DRBIII models/years

|broncoguy80125||Well, I ordered a scanner that will allegedly clear the airbag light, so I guess we will see when it gets here. If not, I suppose the dealer is he only option. Question is, will they clear the code if they didn't do the repair?|
