airbag light....

I have searched the boards for a while on this topic. A few weeks ago my airbag light came on. I checked pretty much everything I could to make sure all connections are connected. I don't want to pay for the dealership to run the computer on it. My horn still works so I wasn't sure if it could still be the clock spring. I also read about a seatbelt retractor that could be bad? I cannot find much on that topic. Any help would be appreciated. I have an 04 Tacoma by the way

I had a nasty air bag light problem here a while back couldn't figure it out fur nothing!! Ended up being my phone charger plugged into the cig lighter!! Not the accessory plugs but the cig lighter! Pulled it out and boom the light was gone! Hopefully you got the same thing going on??

You mentioned you checked the connections. .. did you check the ones going to the SRS/airbag computer? My light taunted me for years, couldn't figure it out after running the diagnostic checks. I read once on this forum that someone wiggled the wires running tothe computer and That's What I did...it's been a month and no light!

SRS computer location

The computer is located in the center console. .. at the very bottom. I've got a 1st gen taco... the computer is located behind the area where the two lower 12v outlets are. There's 4 snap in plastic bolts that you'll have to pop out. I also removed the ashtray to take out the screw behind it. (I'm attaching pics to help)

Just remember to disconnect your battery before messing with the computer. You should find a small box with 3 yellow plastic encased wires. Those are the ones you'll have to check and see if there's a short or disconnect.... again, for me it was solved by wiggling them to make sure the connection was tight.

I checked all connections but still had the light. Ordered new clock spring and the damn thing is still on. I guess I will have to take it to the dealer. Does anyone know about the drivers side seatbelt retractor? I hate to pay to get this thing diagnosed...the Toyota dealer here blows.

Did you check the condition of the passenger airbag on/off switch? Mine was broke from having a CD player installed. Also, check the FSM for the procedure for running SRS codes.
