My air bag light is on in my 99 l wagon. It used to come on then i would restart the car and it would go off. Now it stays on all the time.

Anybody have any ideas on what the problem could be? I checked the airbag connection in the steering wheel and it looked alright to me.

Some things that might be a factor. I was rear ended last winter, there was no damage, my bumper cover only got a scratch.

My dad was thinking maybe a ground wire rotted off.

I checked my fuses and they all look alright. I didnt see any wires for the air bag under my seat. I'll look to change my clock spring next.

BEST SOLUTION is to actually bring it to a reputable shop and have a diagnosis check. have them figure out what the problem. most likely you would pay 1 hr of labor but you know exactly whats wrong. instead of r and r'ing the wrong part.

+1. and if you screw something up with the air bags... i bet its big money, not work the risk IMO.
