The old days of disconnecting the battery to make the light go out are long gone, It must be reset with a scan tool so try this go to advance auto and have them put it on a scan tool to find out what the codes are then have them clear the codes. If the light comes back on after that you may have to replace the fuel cap. I hope this helps you.

On a 2005 mazda tribute, the air bag light flashes code 46. I already disconnected, cleaned, and reconnected EVERYTHING under both seats. what next?

Although I am not a Mazda mechanic, I do have some experience with these problems.
When you get everything fixed, the light will stay on until you have the computer "reset".
This may cost up to several hundred dollars at some dealerships.
If they try to reset it, and something is still wrong, they may still charge you the fee.:-(
God bless your efforts.

Mazda tribute problems

The indicator is actually telling you there is a leak in the evap system. This can be caused by a loose cap, on cars that have them; but it will come on for any leak in the system. The capless fuel pipe may not be sealing, or any hose in the system may be leaking. Check the small hoses connected to the engine intake manifold--one of those is the purge line, which is part of the evap system. The rest of the system includes a charcoal canister and a vent line from the fuel tank. There may also be a vent valve connected to the canister. A leak in any of these can cause the light to stay on and may affect the operation of the engine, if the leak is large.
