I know, most everyone hates this dreaded light. Trouble is, mine d/n come on ever...06 Charger SRT8. Trying to verify if system is working or not.
Car was in a wreck years ago and Drivers airbag was deployed...one of the things I found when I first got the car...Horn d/n work...deployed airbag was reinstalled instead of replaced. I replaced Airbag, Steering control module, clock spring, and column. Tried the gage cluster self test by pushing the odometer trip button, turning key on, then releasing trip button, all other lights test including gage needles...no airbag light.
No codes set except U0184 and U0186...which are no comms with Radio, no comms with Audio amp (has an aftermarket Pioneer stereo system installed). I verified good power to occupant restraint controller on C2 pins 16 and 24. Passenger side Switch bank works as advertised. Diagrams don't show the airbag signal that lights the light in the temp gage part of the cluster? Does show an Indicator Dimmer Signal coming from Switch bank pin-6 to Cluster-C3 pin-2, but that looks like its maybe a signal to decrease the light intensity of the pass side "Air Bag Off Light" for driving at night, or when you turn the cluster lights down. seems like I'm missing a diagram that shows the pin-out from OCC to gage cluster-Air bag light? I've looked through 8W-43-2 to 43-7 numerous times and only page -2 comes close, but shows passenger side interface.
I think system is ok, because the OCC is self testing the Passenger side seat sensor and works the pass side light on or off accordingly. light in the cluster could be burned out, as I have no SRS codes (U0184 and U0186 are SRS codes, but are for radio and amp?) Anyone know a way to verify the lite on the cluster? I took the rear cover off the cluster and its a circuit board...no old fashioned lights. Not even sure if it runs off 12v or a lower voltage. I hate to throw $75-$100 at a new cluster that may or may not fix the light.
