Default airbag light

the airbag light in my gauge cluster started blinking the other day while i was driving, i turned off the airbag switch with the key and it didnt change anything. it doesnt always come on, only sometimes, not consistant. when it does come on it blinks in a sequence, i think its three consecutive blinks followed by a solid light that stays on for like ten seconds +/-, then the cycle starts again. anybody kno what that could be?

Under your seats there is a connection with 2 wires take the connectors apart then reconnect them, maybe with a shot of WD40- worked for me!
