    I have the Airbag light on. I was going to take it to the dealer... but that probably will not end up well... as I might walk out with another truck...

    So I want to describe how the problem is behaving and hopefully ya'll will know if it is the clockspring or not.

    1. I have not had the test done, so no error code.

    2. Sometimes the light has turned off when I start the vehicle. As soon as I move the wheel, it turns on. (This is why I think it is the clockspring)

    3. Everything in the wheel works. (Horn, Cruise, Etc)

    4. It is just a static light.

    5. While I haven't throughoutly checked, I do not put anything under my seats, so a disconnection is unlikely.

    So, what do you all say, should I just buy a clockspring and install it or take to dealer and get the code?

    You appear to be right on with your thinking. That being said to be 100% sure your should have it scanned. I would hate it if you installed one and it was the airbag itself or a wiring issue lower in the column. The odds are in your favor but............................ you never know for sure

    Yeah, that is partly what im basing my thinking pattern on. I kinda want to get it scanned but the only people that can, are the dealer, and it is like $100.00 for a simple scan.

    Hmmm. I remember not too long ago someone posting a way to get the airbag codes using a jumper method. I've been searching over and over and perhaps I'm just doing it wrong...

    Anyone know where that thread is or the way to do it?
