Re: Air Bag Light
Would seem strange that there would be no codes present if the light is constantly on. While the light is the air bags are disabled, so they will not deploy in an accident. I recommend taking it to a Dodge dealer for diagnosis and repair. If cost is an issue, tell them you just want a code test and advise on possible causes. They may have seen the problem before, and will usually be the quickest at diagnosis and repair.

Depending on type of SRST, the air bag module may have detected something that in case of accident, it may prevent the airbags to deploy.
Have the car scanned for error codes. If the the warning light is ON, there sure is an error code.
Remember that some manufacturers (according to local laws), program the ECM SRST system to issue a warning at certain mileage or time, just to remind you that it is time to replace the air bag assemblies at the steering wheel and dashboard...
Most likely a problem with one of the air bag sensors or an air bag system control computer. Most air bag codes are only able to be read and reset by a dealer service center. I would start there. Good luck!
The Air Bag Warning light on your dashboard functions just link a check engine light does. When it comes on and stays on there is a issue and the only way to know is to get it Airbag Control Module scanned by a VAG com scanner.
I don't know if Auto Zone can scan this but it is worth a try as they are free. If they don't then you will have to go to a repair shop and have it scanned. Once you get it scanned you will know what is causing the Air Bag Warning light to stay on. Then you can post it hear and I can assist you further. There is really know way to know until it is scanned.

if an air bag warning light is illuminated while driving the air bag safety system has been disabled and will not activate in the event of an accident .. it could be your crash sensor or the air bag inflator
Yes, you are correct. The air bag warning light is indicating a malfunction of the air bag system has been detected by the air bag control module. The problem could be anything from a sensor defect to a wiring issue.
You can take the truck to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and ask them to scan your truck for trouble codes. They will scan the truck at no charge and report the trouble codes that are present. Write the codes down and respond back, we can begin to diagnose the issue.
the air bag light will only show if the ignition was turned on while it was disconnected.
it will defo need to be pluged into the computer to be put out but some smaller garages will have the software to do this and will be a little cheaper.here in ireland VW wanted 50euro to do mine but a small garage done it for 30euro.
you can buy code finders/reset gadgets on ebay but might not be worth it for one job compared to $130.
my suggestion would be to get the main dealer to do it if a normal automotive shop cannot access it.
