    I"m sorry but this is not an indicator light to take lightly, if you rely on your airbags for safety as most people do ahd you have the slightest doubt they are operating properly I.E. blinking on and off you should take the car to the dealer or someonone authorized to fix them and have them checked, giving you advice on here would be like telling you to just go ahead and disconnect the wire and the blinking will stop, but that won't insure your safety.

The Airbag light is blinking to let you know the system has a fault and is disabled, the most common cause of this is a broken rotating contact under the steering wheel, we tech's call this the clock-spring contact because of it's shape, it is the most common issue with all steering wheel mounter airbag module.

Furthermore, would you really wan't to take the risk and get into a serious accident and your airbags don't deploy and find out the hard way why the light was blinking? I mean sure it could just be a bad bulb connection, but that really isn't something to tinker with.

Airbag dashboard light keeps blinking. In 1997 Ford Thunderbird.

The air bag computer will have to be scanned and the code read to know what the fault the computer detects. The problem will have to be repaired for the light to shut off. Keep in mind, when the air bag light is illuminated the air bag system is deactivated. Meaning, in the event of a collision the bags won't deploy.

You have a condition the computer recognises as a fault in the air bag system. It needs to be corrected to have the air bag system work properly. A Scanner with Air Bag ability needs to be used to diagnose the problem. First look for any blown fuses for the air bag system.
