    Has anyone had a flashing airbag light go off in their truck? Any ideas on how to make it go away or fix it?

    ARB bumper, warn 9.5 winch. carbon fiber hood. Leer top with thule racks and MOAB from thule. Electric fans, blue sea fuse block, Sony dvd Head unit, Xm tuner and HD tuner. New carpet and new racing seats. ( other half doesnt like them i think). Nwor springs and adjustable coil overs. Sky jacker rear shocks. Slot and drilled rotors. Engine Titanium ceramic coated headers, no cat, jba cat back. URD Rear Sensor Simulator. Leds all around and inside cab and HID H4 hi/lo beams.
    Airbag computer failure or sensor failure.

    Edit try disconnect the battery and waiting 15 mins. That discharges the air bag computer caps. if that doesnt work then you have two points of failure. to look at.

    if you have a code checker, see what codes it's throwing. or take it to a dealer/mechanic to get that checked ASAP.

    this happened to me one time and i simply looked under my dash where the fuse box is and there were two wires that became disconnected and it so happened to be my airbag plug, so give it a look and see what you see.

    I ended up taking it to the dealer and it turns out the sensor in my seatbelt went bad... I guess that can happen if its pulled out all the way and gets yanked on hard... or they can just go out.. ive got 196500 on the truck. Anyways, $250 for a new seatbelt.

    funny this should come up. mine has been doing the same for a few weeks. avoided going to the stealership cuz that just means $$$. after this hurricane i;ll check the fuses and then disconnect the battery if all fuses are intact.

    i figured the worst that could happen was i'd get in an accident and my airbag wouldn't deploy...

    Honda has life time seat belt replacement. I was just talking to my friend that's a mechanic at Toyota. He wishes Toyota did the same.

    Now having same problem. Flashing SRS light. Probably a problem with my seatbelt tensioner.
