    Hello guys! I recently purchased a 98 Taco. Single cab 4wd 5 speed..

    Anyways, the airbag light is on and won't go off.

    Any ideas on how to fix it?

    Cheers!

    You can check the SRS codes your self to pinpoint where the fault is
    at. follow the directions below...

    (1) Turn the ignition switch to the ACC or ON position
    and wait for approx. 20 seconds.
    (2) Using SST, connect terminals Tc and E1 of the
    DLC1.

    [DLC 1 is the diag connector on top of the engine]

    NOTICE:
    Pay due attention to the terminal connecting position to
    avoid a malfunction.

    (b) Past troubles codes:
    Output the DTC.
    (1) Using service wire, connect terminals Tc and E1 of
    the DLC1.

    SST 09843–18020 is a jumper wire. any jumper will do, the SST
    has special terminal connectors.

    (2) Turn the ignition switch to the ACC or ON position
    and wait for approx. 20 seconds.
    NOTICE:
    Pay due attention to the terminal connecting position to
    avoid a malfunction.

    (c) Read the DTC.
    Read the 2–digit DTC as indicated by the number of times
    the SRS warning light blinks. As an example, the blinking
    patterns, normal, 11 and 31 are shown in the illustration.
    �� Normal code indication
    The light will blink 2 times per second.

    �� Malfunction code indication
    The first blinking output indicates the first digit
    of a 2–digit DTC. After a 1.5–second pause,
    the second blinking output will indicate the
    second digit.

    If there are 2 or more codes, there will be a 2.5–second pause
    between each code. After all the codes have been output, there
    will be a 4.0–second pause and they will all be repeated.
    HINT:
    �� In the event of a number of trouble codes, indication will
    start from the smallest numbered code.
    �� If a DTC is not output or a DTC is output without terminal
    connection, proceed to the Tc terminal circuit inspection

    I have a 96 Tacoma purchased new, a few years ago my airbag warning light came on then faded to out several times upon starting up. I shined it and it has stayed out since. I worry that the bulb may be out and the airbag system might have failed. Any clue as to why the light would come on and the fade to out after a few minutes of driving? I hate to go to the dealership @ $130/hour.
