Maybe the RABS control unit flashing a code? Did you notice if it was a series of short flashes ending in a long flash?

Shock from the bump cold have set it off. Have a buddy who went over some railroad tracks in his car and the shock from the bumps set off his airbag warning light. Had to get a code reader to reset it.
