Airbag light comes on and lose ability to run fan, windows, doors

I have a 2001 dodge intrepid with 45k miles on it. lately the past year or so the airbag light comes on and then we lose the heater or air and the fan along with the use of door locks and windows wont operate. Sometimes just pulling over and turning off the car and then back on fixes the problem but not always. I have checked the fuses on the left side of the dash and pulled out every relay and reset and cleaned. ALSO CHECKED THE FUSE BOX IN THE ENGINE BAY. still comes back. It is more prevalent in summer than winter but has happened year round. Sometimes wont be back for a few months and sometimes will happen several times a week mostly in summer. The dealer wants $100 per hour to even look at. Have run code checks but nothing shows up. I went to the dealer right away and left car on with airbag light on and no code showed up. What gives and where do I look further?

First you should be able to turn the key on, off, on, off then on and leave on (not start position) then wait and your engine light will flash a series of codes...write down the series of codes and then search online to interpret what the codes mean. Not necessarily need to go to dealer. Further...check multiple ground straps are connected and not rotted out. Next, I would suspect body control module. My car 96 Trep was doing exact same thing. I just reconnected the ground strap but I am suspecting BCM. People @ have been very helpful (awesome) and have given me lots of patient guidance. Read about body control modules. I am still having problem starting...not sure if it's related.

The earth strap goes from any solid mount on the engine to any solid mount on the chassis. I dont know if this will help solve all of your problems but it certainly wont do any harm.

I have a 97 intrepid the abs light and the aIRBAG LIGHT IS on which causes the ac and power windows not to work

I recently purchased a 1997 intrepid at a great price because it had this same problem.
The problem is in the ignition switch. If you turn your fan on high and push on the key with the palm of your hand, you will hear the
Fans start running, ABS and Airbag light will turn off. At some point, the problem will return but is corrected again with the push of
The key. Annoying, YES but not worth spending any money on.
The auto dealer repair shop freeked out when I told them of the problem, they did not beleive me
until I stoped in one day and showed them the
Temporary fix
