If so you have to solder in a new bulb since you can just buy a replacement bulb

Mine was 27 and my bulb was burned out! Talk about a cheap fix! $2.57 for the bulb at Radio Shack vs over $60 at the stealership for a whole new switch!

Check the conectors under the seat. Mine was flashing, ( i forget what code it was) found out that it had to do with the seat belt tensioner, which is what the conectors under the seat are for. They are known to get loose or corroded. I unplugged mine, sprayed some electrical cleaner in them, and plugged back in. Problem solved.
