Default Airbag light always on.

So i have been reading about it, but some people suggest to replace the light from the passanger side lock. But i notice that mine works fine.

Actually i didnt have the light till i replace both of my front seats and now its always on. I tried cleaning the conecctions and nothing was looking at the wiring and looks fine. Any advice on what to look for?

what year is your truck? what seats did you put in? if you are 98+, did you put the pretensioner seat belts back on? how many times does the light flash?

the pretensioner yanks the seatbelt tight in the event of a frontal collision...they work together with the airbags

Yep! That's what you got to do. I took the seat belts off old seats and made a bracket to bolt them to my expo. Seats then just plug them back up, off goes air bag light..
