Intermittent power on problem, monitor now completely dead
This monitor had an intermittent power on problem. I took it apart to see if there were obvious issues such as blown fuse, burnt or blown device, bad solder connections on power connectors, etc. Found nothing obvious but before reassembling I had plugged it in to check output voltage from the power supply; Got 12V and 5V output from output connector, however, the led on control panel lit up and viola, the monitor worked. It continued to work for about 3 weeks until I had to replace the surge protector it was plugged into. Once it was plugged in, it wouldn't turn on. If I unplug it then plug it in to the live outlet, the status led (green on, amber idle) flashes very faintly but it does nothing else. I'm pretty sure the PS is good. If it is, then what else could be causing it to not turn on.

Rapid Continuous Flashing of Air Bag Indicator (No Diagnostic Trouble Code) Both Primary Crash Sensors Disconnected Assembly Plant Mode
TROUBLE CODE CLEARING
1. Follow the diagnostic procedures to service the fault condition flashing on the air bag indicator prior to code clearing.
2. Cycle the ignition switch to OFF and then to RUN.
3. Observe air bag indicator prove-out (six ? two seconds) followed by diagnostic trouble code (52-85) flashing completely one time.
4. Locate the Diagnostic "Trouble Code Clear" Connector (grey connector). located underneath the glove compartment, left side (06010) containing Circuits 631 (T/R) and 57 (BK).
5. Use a jumper wire to short Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK) or to another good ground. This short must be made after the diagnostic trouble code flashes completely one time, but before the warning light stays on continuously.
6. Hold short until air bag diagnostic monitor tone sounds (approximately five seconds).
7. Release short on Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK). This short must be released within 25 seconds after the diagnostic monitor tone sounds.
Diagnostic trouble code is now cleared from memory. Next highest priority diagnostic trouble code stored (if one exists) will begin flashing.
The codes and clearing proceedure above are to be used as a guide, NO claims are implied as to the correctness or accuracy of either.
The main fuse may be intermittent, causing complete power failure, the other possibility is a defective door switch not operating properly, or loose plug in the power feed, I suggest a technician to take closer look at the system because this could prove tricky to find the culprit.
Sounds like an air bag problem. You will not be able to reset the light without fixing the problem. The steering wheel airbag electrical contact is suspect. Airbag will have to be removed and problem repaired. . I do not recommend you repair the problem unless qualified.
