Re: airbag light is iluminating on the instrument cluster
Have the jeep scanned by a dealership NOW!!
unless you dont mind driving with the airbags disabled!!,
--you basically have an error with the air bag system!!, and can only be diagnosed by the dealer's scanning software,(welcome to new age cars!)

is this light on the dash the same one that iluminates when you engage the hand brake" if so it may be a faulty micro switch that operates when hand brake is applied they are useually located at the base of the leaver.. hope this helps. regards steve..
Just recently, I inadvertently removed the yellow doohickey that holds the 2 x 10 amp fuses in the interior fuse bank of my 2002 WJ Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I checked the fuses and they were ok so I inserted the fuse holder back in.. Low and behold the seatbelt and airbag light came on and stayed on. After several quick fixes etc to get the lights to go out, I finally returned to the fuse holder and discovered that A. You need to squeeze in the tabs to get the fuse holder out and B. the fuse holder when being re-inserted will not automatically clip in... you have to squeeze the tabs again to press the fuse holder fully home. I started the old girl up again and no more lights.
The issue would not be related to a fuse. There is a fault in the
airbag system somewhere, and your airbags are not operational at this
time. The issue may be related to the seatbelts, but if you don't
understand the airbag system it is best left to a professional. Airbags
save lives, but can also be deadly if you don't know what you're doing.
there are many sensors and and each airbag have sensors so you will have to get it scanned to know where to start. just a note air bag parts can be very expensive so check out your local salvage yard. they can save you hundreds. good luck paul
