You likely have a sensor fault. You can have this checked free of charge at most national parts chains such as Auto Zone or Advance. They will do a diagnostic code read for you and interpret the codes in hopes of selling you a part. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Trouble after replacing PCM on Dodge Dakota.

Yes the warning lights on the insturment cluster should lite when you turn the key to on . You know ,check engine light , ABS , air bag ,the cluster gauges should also do a sweep test . Does the vehicle have a anti-theft system ? The new PCM would have nothing to do with the lights . Try turning on the headlamps , do they work ?

Air bag warning light stays on 2001 dodge dakota

Hi. The light activates when there is a problem with the airbag arming thus while the light is on it will NOT deloy. A quick fix might be removing the connectors to the battery, resulting in a computer system restart possibly eliminating a false activation of the light, If the problem persists take it to the dealer for a diagnosis "due to the complexity of the entire airbag system".. do not attempt any kind of service to this system on your own.

Airgbag light is on. how do to reset it?

The short answer is no.
The air-bag warning light came on. Something has gone wrong and warrants a look to see what has happened. You would need to buy a special scan-tool to look at the live data, at stored codes, and after the repair is done, then reset the air-bag system.
Please don't tamper with the yellow connectors unless you know what to do. Static charge can set off an air-bag.

2002 dakota air bag warning light stays on continuosly. fuses ok. diconnected battery. no joy.

The clock spring in the steering is broken this is the device that connects the power to the air bags you will need to replace it then reset the brain using a diagnostic tool.

This is a typical problem the sensor may be bad this is not a true solution though but just disconnect it all together the flashing light could be irritating thats why many people do this.

Airbag light is on on dodge dakota

This is very serious. I would not delay. I would find a reliable auto center, and have them check it out.
You do not want your air bags going off while you are driving.
It may just be a faulty switch, but better safe than sorry.
Please let me know what you find.

Air bag disconnected for childseat

Not positive, but most vehicals have a wire that plugs into the seatbelt buckle under the seat. that connection opperates both seatbelt & airbag lights.
