Airbag service warning

My service airbag warning is on, can I do it myself or is this a dealer only problem? Thanks.

well it depends what the problem is...............................

you need to check what codes are being set. A fairly common problem is the EFS (electronic front sensor) fails and has to be replaced. Its mounted on the radiator core support in the center. It costs less than $100 and can be replaced in your driveway with a 10mm socket in about 5 minutes.

But dont go out and buy one, because I cant say for sure if thats the problem your truck is having, because you havent posted any codes.

Im just saying thats ONE of the problems it COULD be.

I dont know the exact code, but if you get the code number (it will be "Bxxxx") and put it into google it should come up. Some code readers even give you the written description. Not all code readers will read airbag codes. You will need a more advanced code reader. I dont know if the code readers they let you borrow at Advance Auto will read airbag codes or not...
