air bag light continuously on
so my airbag light came on... but not in the normal way.
as we know, there are 3 states of the airbag light:
•1 - on for 6 seconds, then goes out | "When neither active fault nor historic fault exists (below 10 different faults are recorded or the number of times of same fault is less than 10)" - workshop manual
•2 - flashes 6 times in 6 seconds, then goes out | "The warning lamp blinks for 6 seconds at 1 Hz for 6 seconds and be turned off afterwards (when Neither active fault nor historical fault exists)" - workshop manual
•3 - on for 6 seconds, goes out for one second, the comes back on and stays on | active fault
well I have a different situation. my airbag light is on continuously, all the time. never goes out unless the ignition is off. my 07 would turn on for 6 seconds, then go out. this 04 would always blink at me 6 times then go out since I got it fixed months ago. just a few weeks ago it started doing the first case, where it goes on solid for 6 seconds, then goes out. but now it's just on.
the light's actually acting like the SRS module had the fuse pulled for it, which creates the same symptoms. however, the SRS module is still working the dinger when I unbuckle (controlled by the SRS module and no longer happens if you pull the fuse) and I can communicate with it, but there are no current or historical DTCs on it.
It first came on after filling up at a gas station. i started the car, light came on then off, then came on 20s later. I turned the ignition off, then back on, and the light stayed on and never went out. it started acting normal the next day, but then came back on on my way back from work that same day. I didn't see anything about this in the workshop manual nor on the webs, so that kinda has me left in a "well what the **** do I do now" state.
update: on the way to work I smacked the center console near where the SRSMC is located and the light went out and is acting normally again. that's reassuring.
