    My air bag light on my 1995 GT comes on at start and stays on. No blinking or codes, just stays on. This started when I changed the steering wheel and air bag while the battery was connected. I've checked the fuse (#1 under the dash) and tried swapping out the air bag with the one originally in it. Light still comes on.

    i could use some help on this

    Thanx
    Jim

    I'd start with resetting the module and see if it goes away.

    Look for this connector under the glove box. It has a black and brown/red wire.

    With the ignition off, use a paperclip and jump the two terminals from the back side of the connector, like shown:

    You'll have to hold the paperclip across the terminals for about 5 seconds or so and you'll hear a series of beeps when it's been reset.

    I appreciate the tip. I did do that several times. No beep, so I guess no codes were saved. Didn't help, either

    Thanx

    I'm sure you know that doing anything with the airbags while the battery is hooked up is a no no.

    With no flashes or beeps, there's no codes to go on, so maybe the airbag control module itself is faulty ??
