    Airbag Light Suddenly On

    I have an o4 WRX with stage 2 stuff done a couple years back. I recently (about 800 miles ago) changed the spark plugs and had to disconnect the battery. Now I've got an Airbag light stuck on. Is there a quick way to fix this, like taking the wires off the battery or something else before I take it to the dealer and they use stage 2 equip. to overcharge me?

    "Disconnected the battery...waited 10 minutes and then disconnected the main airbag wire under the dashboard/steering wheel, just like the manual said."

    this happen to me a few months ago - turned out that it was just the airbag sensor cable under the driver/passenger seat that had come partly unplugged. Check 'em and make sure they're tight.

    I noticed mine was on a few weeks ago. Didn't notice when exactly it turned off but it's not there anymore. Like most unpleasant things in life, it's best to just ignore it and hope it goes away.
