I've had an issue with the air bag warning light coming on when I'm making a turn. It stays on for a minute then goes out. I just reolaced the clockspring and the problem still exists. What am I missing?

Re: air bag light
Sounds to me to be a faulty clockspring, have your dealer read the code, they can also estimate the job for you, also, a ten minute battery disconnect usually clears all codes. Disconnect the negitive cable whenever doing any electrical work.

The air bag light on then off for a while,while driving it comes on and stay on for a while this means the system has detected a problem in the airbag system and it is warning you that if you get in a accident the air bag may not deploy. My hope is that youll never need it and youll never be a vehicle when it goes off.
In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.
I had this. The issue was resolved by the Jaguar Main Dealer by recalibrating the passenger seat weight sensor. The system is designed so that the passenger air-bag is disabled within a certain weight band detected on the seat (to protect babies in carry-chairs).
make sure your air bag light is operating. if the airbag light is burnt out on the instrument cluster, it will beep an audible tone to let you know there is a problem since there is no working warning light. turn key on (but dont start vehicle) and see if the air bag light comes on and shuts off (its called "prove-out") if it does not come on at all, chances are... the light for air bag warning on cluster is burnt out
is this van new for you ? is it a status light letting you know that the airbag is loaded and ready for anypassenger that you have in your van ? do you have a key that you can turn it off in most vans there is an option to turn air bag on or off depending on size or opinion of passenger . im thinking that if its a status light its okay to be on letting you know its ready for opperation . take a look at your owners manual airbag section . and if it does turn out to be a warning malfunction indicator please dont waste time take it to your local dealer and have it checked out .hope this information helps good luck
