Hi all,

I've got an '08 X with the flashing airbag light. I got it into diagnostic mode and it flashed 2 long and 3 short blips of the airbag light. From what I read, that's the code for the airbag module under the cup holders. Does this sound right?

There are shops around me that do factory resets on the airbag modules and I'm wondering if a reflash would fix the situation? The truck hasn't been in an accident nor has an airbag gone off. Is it likely that it's a programming error or something physical like corrosion or such?

I appreciate any guidance!!

Oh, and I've done the reset more times than I'd like to admit lol. The light comes back on almost immediately...

Get an actual code reader to be sure and find out what the code is. That would be a good start.

Yeah, I had a mechanic friend scan it. He said that it was the module and that he couldn't reset the code either.

So, would a reflash of the module help? Can I just get a scrap yard jobbie?

Thanks again in advance!!

What was the code? The actual numbers and letters?
Yeah, it would have made far too much sense for me to have written that down.
