When I went to leave work today, I noticed my Airbag light was flashing, then stayed on. The light blinks one, then twice, then repeats until finally it just stays on. I reset the computer when I got home by disconnecting the battery. Anyone know what's going on?

one of the clips came unpluged, you gotta take out the dash to get to one, the other is behind your glove box

all you do is use a flathhead to remove the light knob then remove the 2 torx bits under the top of the trim. the trim will pop out exposing a few small torx bits. remove these and pull out gauge cluster as a whole.

Alright so I went and checked the fuses and the airbag fuse was blown. I changed it out and now I'm getting the 52 code which is "Backup power supply fault" What should I start to hit up next?

From what I've read, this 52 code will stay after you fix the initial problem until you clear the code. Just so I understand this, to clear the code, I turn the car on, let the code run once, jump the two circuits before the light stays on, hold it till I hear a tone?

Do I have to remove the glovebox to get to the airbag module?

could just do my age old favorite i had a 78 that the alternator light stayed on all the time even though there was nothing wrong that we could ever find. here is what i did. pulled out the cluster got to the back of it pulled the wires off the back of the dummy light put it all back together problem fixed :)

just my 2 cents
