    I've had my airbag light come on and would like to know how to get it checked aside from the stealership. The closest one is almost an hour drive and I don't want to pay $75 for them to pull a code. Is there a way I can jump a connector and get count? Any link to SRS code #'s?

    Thanks

    I have an 03 with Airbag lights on. I was able to get my codes pulled by my local mechanic (not a toyota tech) - pretty sure he used a SnapOn code reader. He could only read and reset it with that tool - there was no further diagnosis from the reader - it just gave the codes.

    You might check craigslist for someone close by that was/is a toyota tech on the side - they ususally have access to the toyota laptop scanner tool.

    Called Toyota of Mobile, $45. Also found a local tech that's willing to run the code for $35. There has go to be an easier way to do this... A connector jump, count flashes.. It's a lot of money for 5mins of their time.

    Look at build!
    Check to make sure all your wires are plugged up to especially if you just had teh dash out for any reason, maybe a connecter has a bad connection or is just simply unplugged.

    My 1999 did the same thing. I found via interweb, to pull both of the 12 V acc plugs from underneath ash tray, remove battery sit down have a beer or six, plug 12V acc back in and re-connect battery and the light goes off, I have done this twice. I have no idea why it went off but I was using a 1 million candle power light through the 12v acc plugs and trying to charge cell phone at the time.

    right below ashtray I had 2 12v aux outputs so one day I tried to charge cell and run a spot light. Air bag light came on. I took center console apart and un plugged the two 12 v plugs from factoey harness just below the ash tray and didn't touch the abs (yellow) wires. Took battery off . Reinstalled the two 12v wires to the outlets and then battery, and no abs or airbag light.
