2008 Armada SE Airbag lIght - spiral cable ?


The Airbag light is flashing and now the truck is grounded with a big R inspection sticker for safety they say. 17 year old daughter not happy but nothing new

Is it possible that the horn and all the other controls still work but the spiral cable or clockspring as some refer to it still be the cause of this issue.

Doing some searches before I posted the symptoms of a faulty spiral cable typically show the horn not working either.

Thank you in advance for any input.

It's possible to just have the air bag circuit open or shorted in the clockspring, but that's jumping the gun a bit. You need to find out what the stored code is in the air bag control unit, which will help determine what has failed. If the air bag flashes are all the same length and steady in their timing, the control unit is in "present diagnostic mode." You may be able to reset it using this method:
