Re: air bag code
I strongly suspect you have a bad connection or corroded connection at one of your connectors.
Here's the LFC (lamp Fault Codes) for 36:
Driver Side Air Bag Circuit Shorted to Ground
GO to Pinpoint Test V .
Driver Side Air Bag Circuit Shorted to Battery or Ignition
GO to Pinpoint Test W .
Driver Side Air Bag Circuit Resistance High
GO to Pinpoint Test X .
Driver Side Air Bag Circuit Resistance Low
GO to Pinpoint Test Y .

Code 32 Driver Side Air Bag Circuit High Resistance or Open. Possible open circuit in air bag rotating contact under the steering wheel referred to as the clock spring contact. Do not attempt to replace this with disarming the system or an unwanted airbag deployment may occur. VERY DAMAGEROUS DEVICE, TRUCT ME ON THIS.
Simply put the SRS light tells you that the sensor cant connect to the trigger of your airbag namely the one locate in the steering wheel. This is beacause of a device known as a clock spring located in the steering. Its moves like a clock and allows the sensor and bag to get connection but sometimes the coil wires get broken.
To fix this take it to a SHOP. reasons for that. 1.) A DEPLOYED AIR BAG WILL KILL YOU 2.) WITHOUT THE PROPER KNOWLEDGE YOU WILL DEPLOY THE AIR BAG 3.) EQUIPMENT IS EXPENSIVE
the fix involves. (REMOVE BATTERY) 1.) remove the steering wheel using the lock bolt and key 2.) unblot and remove then unlock the clock spring 3.) replace, 4.) recalibrate and reset spring 5.) reset error codes 6.) reassemble 7.) reset error codes.
Code 32 on the airbag diagnostic circuit indicates a drivers side air bag wiring resistance out of range. This could be the connections on the clock spring in the steering or a loose connector to the air bag in the steering wheel. If you are not familure with the proper diagnostic proceedures I do not recomend attempting to repair it yourself. If the air bag circuit is not de-energized before removal there is a possibility of air bag deployment when removing it.
To manually check air bag codes, turn the key On and push the driver's door switch (at the bottom of the B-pillar) 5 times or more within 7 seconds of turning the key ON. Then watch the air bag light flashing codes. The air bag light will come ON for 3 seconds and then give fast flashes if there is a code. Count the fast flashes as the code. So the air bag light on for 3 seconds and then 8 flashes is a code 8 for the passenger air bag circuit. after counting code
clear codes and see if they come back
CLEARING CODES (works for code 52) 1. Only intermittent codes and codes that diagnostic monitor recognizes as being repaired may be cleared from memory. To clear codes, cycle ignition OFF to ON. Observe AIR BAG warning light. AIR BAG warning light will illuminate for 4-8 seconds, and flash fault code.
(Comment) Loosely translated - If you dont have the problem fixed, this wont work. Code 52 should clear with this!
2. Locate air bag diagnostic 2-pin connector.
(Comment) This was a fun one. According to the air bag wiring diagram that I also got from Mitchell, the Airbag Diagnostic Connector is located "Right side of Instrument Panel". The only thing I found immediately to the right of the I/P (between the stereo and Instrument panel) was a black computer with 4 connectors which is NOT what I was looking for. I finally found a blog that mentioned the computer for the air bag computer was behind the right side kick panel. Sure enough....there it was. Attached to the side of the diagnostic computer was a two prong diagnostic connector.
3. Connect a jumper wire between diagnostic connector terminals. Leave jumper wire connected until diagnostic monitor tone sounds (about 5 seconds). Disconnect jumper wire. Fault code is cleared.
Bet switches in steering wheel are bad...Very common. Especially if it has a air bag and the air bag light is on...I would clean the switches or if it has a air bag and the light is on replace the clock spring for the air bag and the light will go off and cruise will work again......
