Do you know the part #? I went to Radio Shack last night and all the 12v lights that had two leads were very tiny.

That's what you're looking for. I believe the ones I used are Cat # 272-1099. You can find them at http://www.radioshack.com/category.a...5%5F000&Page=1

Last night I turned the passenger airbag on and the light started flashing! This sucks.

So let me get this straight the airbag light is on because the light that says the passenger one is burnt out?

Not necessarily. There are many reasons for the light to flash. Luckily, it flashes out a trouble code via the airbag light. Just count the flashes - they will be in a pattern that gives a 2-digit code like 4-7-4-7-4-7.... or 2-5-2-5-2-5....

Post the code and we can translate it.

Here's what the S/M says:

...27......B1884......Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Warning Lamp Inop

OR

...27......B1890......Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Warning Lamp Short to Battery


It is FAR more likely that it is bulb failure than a short to the battery. So, yes, my guess would be that it is the bulb.

Mine was showing airbag code 27, but the light lit up if I disabled the passenger air bag, so I picked up another switch module from junkyard for cheap, and it fixed the problem.

Thanks for the thread to point me to the cause
