    Ok then yeah you’ll have to look around for bad grounds, battery or alternator.

    Sometimes the sensors just go bad or rust through. My 95 always had airbag lights on and if you looked at the sensors they were in horrible shape. Talked to a few others who have had the sensors just fail after so many years.

    The sensor are mounted to the front core support. They look like little cubes and have a white harness. Take a look at them and the wire harness and see if you can see anything that looks bad. Sometimes just disconnecting them and reconnecting will clean the contacts enough to show where the problem is when it goes away.
