    I understand that there is a lot of us that have the AIRBAG LIGHT issues, mine have been ON for the last 2 months, here is what I found that allowed me to CLEAR the light OFF


    Based on the following link:


    http://www.ncttora.com/fsm/2003/Repair_Manual/03tacoma/di/rs/preche.pdf



    Please beware that these are comments, the poster(s) do not take any responsibilities of any consequences to yourself or your truck.


    TAKE PRECAUTION AND PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!



    excerpts from the above link:



    4. DTC CLEARANCE (Not using service wire)


    When the ignition switch is turned off, the diagnostic trouble


    Code is cleared.


    HINT:


    DTC might not be cleared by turning the ignition switch OFF.


    In this case, proceed to the next step.



    5. DTC CLEARANCE (Using service wire)


    (a) Connect the 2 service wires to terminals Tc and AB of


    Check connector.


    [​IMG]


    (b) Turn the ignition switch to ON and wait for approx. 6 seconds.



    (c) Starting with the Tc terminal, ground alternately terminal


    Tc and terminal AB twice each in cycles of 1.0 second.


    Make sure that the terminals are grounded. Ensure the


    Terminal Tc remains grounded.



    HINT:


    When alternately grounding terminals Tc and AB, release


    ground from one terminal and immediately ground the other terminal


    within an interval of 0.2 seconds.


    If DTCs are not cleared, repeat the above procedure until the


    codes are cleared.



    in conclusion I was able to do 2 things:
    1. Read the airbag codes as DTC11: 1, DTC31:5
    Repeating 1blink + 5blinks, still looking to see what it means??

    2. Able to clear the code :), but they do come back as my problem has not been fixed.:mad:

    Hope this help others, and if anyone can tell me the definition of the codes, I'll appreciate it.

    Last weekend, removed the wheel and took the clockspring out to repair the broken wire in the ribbon cable.
    This is a CHEAP ribbon cable and should not fail after only 3 years of service.
    TOYOTA should replace as a defective parts....
    solder the broken wire, and put everything back >> No more warning lite.

    2 days later, airbag light is ON again, from design of this cable it is not possible to solder and fix this cable to last too long as this ribbon cable pass thru a roller guide that stress the solder repair area and will break it again.

    Yesterday, I finally got a pulled clockspring off a 2010 TRD ($120) also bought a 2010 windshield wiper switch w/intermittent control.
    Just finish install of both, works beautifully, waring light is Off and airbag is now in working condition. and I also have delay windshield wipers.:D
