2012 Explore Air Bag Light On

Any advice on how to fix or diagnose; not really seeing much on this but it stays on and I need to get it inspected by months end.

As far as I know the general procedure would be hook up a scan tool capable of pulling air bag codes which should help steer in the direction of what to do next.

As far as DIY, I know the Forscan app can read some of those, don't know if the Android version can clear codes after a problem is fixed or not... haven't had to do any airbag problems myself.

Could be a bad module or resistance reading for one of the several bags or ??? Get the code and go from there, you don't want to be messing with airbags any more than necessary.

Had thus twice on my 2012 limited. dealer fixed by doing the tsp(unplugging large lug under seat and putting dielectric grease on it and plugging back in), but it could be something else and the only way to know is to read the code as stated previously.
