Airbag light and series of dings

Lately the airbag light has been flashing a pattern of 2-7-2-7-2-7-2-7-2-7 then stays on steady as soon as the key is tuned to the RUN position. Also at random times after the truck is running or driving, the dinger will ding 5 series of 5 dings. For some reason, the passenger airbag off light does not work.

I am going to have my buddy run the codes sometime within the next few days so we'll see what comes up.

when your passenger airbag light is burned out, the system senses a loss of continuity, and proceeds to warn you of the failure, with a 5 set series of 5 dings. Enough to make you mental.

I went to the dealer for the part ( dealer only ) and decided that I would rather play pick up sticks with my butt cheeks, than pay what they wanted for the airbag switch.

I took it apart, and found what was required for a bulb. Picked one up at radio shack, carefully soldered it in, and problem solved. just like that. I can't recall the number of the bulb that I got, only that they come in packages of two. For about $3 CDN. so if you are strapped, a couple of you could get together, and float $1.50 each..... anyway.

That is how I fixed the problem.
