How-To: Airbag Light (Code 2-7)

Ok finally got around to fixing this thing.... SOME PICTURES ARE GOOD, SOME TOTALLY SUCK!
Make a trip to your local radio shack and get a 272-334 12v DC bulb....i just showed him that and he knew just what it was....They only come in GREEN which is what i got, and RED....under 3$ for 2 of them

Tools needed.... 8mm socket for the battery cable, Philips screw driver, a small flat head, soldering iron, solder, and side cuts (i think thas all)

Pop the hood and unhook the negative battery cable

You dont have to but i did, remove the cup holder / center console...The surrounding trim piece just pops off....also remove the ashtray to see whats going on.....

Remove 2 screws on the bottom of the unit...and it swings out towards the back of the truck, with some help it will flip down and come out..
Unplug the wires from the back, and pull it out

Go to your work station (back of my quad)

And pop the top off....and you will see this...

You can pull the whole piece out, i didnt realize until i cut the old light out...
light gone..

As i grabbed the soldering iron (my old one only the END got hot...well this one the whole Fin rod gets hot....burnt the P!SS out of my hand

Solder the new light on

Tuck it back down in the hole...

Pop the top back on and assemble it all back together, and your finished product is a green light...

And no airbag light...

Works well, although my hand hurts im very happy it worked and i got it done....

272-334 is available online directly from If you can't get it that way, just find a bulb with equivalent specs: 12VDC, 65mA
