I know there was a recall for this and it has been done at the dealer involving cleaning and lubricating connectors but does that mean the dealer got them all. Has anyone had this problem and fixed it or am I at the mercy of the dealer. Any precautions beyond pulling the fuse would be appreciated .

what do you mean by "got them all"?

If the owner doesnt bring the car in for the recall, the dealer cant fix it.

There are more connectors than the recall may have covered. Simply put, when it was in for the recall the dealer may not have checked all the connectors for the system, just the ones listed in the recall. I want to check and clean ALL of the connectors in the system. I think the recall only covered the connectors at the module under the seat Rolling Eyes

Do you have access to a Scan tool that checks Air Bag systems.
To see which airbag is giving you an issue?

never assume. Check it out.

I used My Innova scan tool on my Daughter's car ( 2008) and it was the seat belt pretensioner wires got pinched in the Side panel.

Some of the Autozones around here received new scanners that now read Airbag codes.
