Did my gauges and everything was fine until I needed to pull the cluster again to fix the rpm needle.. Now I have the infamous, beep beep beep.. Air bag light was going on and off randomly, if I held the bulb up it wouldn't flash, so i twisted it a little and air bag doesn't show up now.. But I got the beeping...... WHAT THE ****. I just closed the car up and called it a night, or something would wind up getting broken..

The flashing air bag light tells you there's a fault in the airbag system. The number of flashes identifies the code. If you pull the bulb, or the bulb is out for some reason, the beeping begins in the same pattern the bulb would be flashing, if it were functional.

It didn't flash until the last time I pulled out the cluster. It was a consistant flash, on off on off etc.. Now it doesn't pop up. I pulled the bulb to see if the bulb was bad, looked fine so I put it back in. Its only 4 beeps, stops, than 4, stops, repeats 3 times.. Than it doesn't beep

If it's 4 beeps, pause, 4 beeps, pause, 4 beeps, that means the air bag system is throwing code 43. Could be a ground fault issue. Loose wire. Bad, loose, or damaged sensor.

Yup 4 beeps on and off.. Light no longer comes on. When I have time off I'll check it out.

that wouldn't be 43 code. you need to put a good light bulb in and see if the flashes are long or short to know the code

if its 4 long then a pause and 4 short the code would be 44
