2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee airbag light is on
My airbag light is on. I just bought this 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7. I have replaced the clock spring and the ORC. The connections underneath the seats have been checked. The scanner is stating there is an open circuit with regards to the drivers side pretensioner. The mechanic plugged in another pretentioner, but the airbag light is still on. Do you have any recommendations?
i think that this would be a wiring harness or plug, especially if you tried with another anchor pretensioner.
I'd recommend testing the resistance on the anchor pretensioner. Also, has the airbag module ever been reset?
It will need to be programmed to your VIN.
The seatbelts do not have to be programmed. Only the airbag module is VIN specific.
On some vehicles it will reset itself, others you have to have it reset. You will have to install a new or repaired seatbelt to see if it automatically goes away on your vehicle.
Thanks for your reply. Does a new ORC need to be calibrated to my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee?
Thanks for your info. By the way, does one have to do any reprogramming when a front seat pretensioner is switched out?
If I plug in a faulty front seat pretensioner and the airbag lights comes on because of an open circuit. And, I replace the faulty pretensioner with a good one. Do I have to erase the code from the faulty one to turn the airbag light off, or will it go off by itself?
