Was it a code reader, or a scan tool, most code readers will not pull airbag codes.

I would guess it was a code reader as well. Most basic code readers are set up to read generic OBDII codes. OBDII (On Board Diagnostics) is specifically for engine management/emissions. Higher end code readers may give you some factory specific information if you are able to enter the vehicle information.

The rest of the possible 6+ computers/modules/control units or whatever you would like to call them, require a higher end scan tool to access there codes and information. Even then you can be limited to what the manufacturer of the vehicle has allowed the maker of the scan tool to access information wise. There have been plenty of times that I know I there should be a piece of information but non of our scan tools have access to it!

I had a similar thing on mid 90's Chevy pick up a while back. I took it to the dealer, he told me that a module was out in my airbag system, and that the airbags would not deploy, even in an accident.

I guess what I am saying is I don't think the airbags will go off while you are driving.

It can go either way. It is more likely that they will not work if needed but there is always the possibility them deploying when not needed.

Find out why the light is on and go from there.

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
