#61 of 61 Air bag warning light-08 LT-fixed

I had the "Service air bag" warning light come on intermittently for months. This was for the passenger side bag since the on light would not come on when a passenger was in the seat if the warning light had come on in the DIC. I could turn the eng. off and then re-start and all would be ok. After reading that some of the connectors under the pass. seat could be the problem, I removed the seat, applied some dielectric grease and worked the connectors several times to make sure a good contact was made. This did not seem to help.
So a couple of months ago, it occurred to me that the battery was getting some age on it and I installed a new one. The problem went away. I don't know why a new battery would make a difference. Maybe disconnecting the battery caused the warning code to drop out or reset. Maybe the ground was not all that good. The cables and connections on the battery looked good, so who knows.
I thought I would write this up hopefully to save someone $$$ and time.
