Re: Air bag light

Have you tried removing the battery cables, draining the system and then reconnecting the cables to reset the system?

The only thing I can think of is, if you changed the dimmer switch without disconnecting the power, you may have gotten a momentary short or voltage surge which affected the Air Bag light in some way.

Im with Trojan, Id try to discharge the whole system and see if the light comes back on. Disconnect the negative terminal, get in your car and depress the brake pedal for 10-15 seconds. Reconnect the negative terminal and start her up. Also because you'll be discharging everything, the ecu should clear itself of all its "learned perameters" as well. If you have a decent amount of mods (no chip/tune) it may run a little rough until the ecu re-learns how to cope with your mods.

So just disconnect battery and press and hold brake for 10-15 seconds thought I would've had to disconnect battery for like 15-20 min

That would work, but that's just asking for trouble IMO. If you drain sensative electronics too fast, it puts a lot of stress on the circuits.

Re: Air bag light

Disconnect both cables, positive first, then negative.

Pull on your headlight switch, leave on for 2-5 minutes, then turn off.

Reconnect cables, negative first, positive last.

Sounds to me like you may have missed a wire or something when you did the dimmer switch work. Double check, make sure all wires are connected and in the right place. If that all checks out, have someone clear the computer or if u have a code reader or tuner, clear it urself then check wiring.

Re: Air bag light

Make sure you read about how to work on it further down the page in the link I gave you.You don't want that thing going off in your face unless you really need it to do so.
