Yeah, I got my connector back together but the airbag light on the dash won't go out. If I disconnect the starter battery for 10 minutes (per the post above) will I damage my inverter or anything else?

Re: Airbag light and seat plug wires...

Disconnecting the battery won't hurt a thing. There is a write up in your owners manual on what to do when you do it. It's mostly about driving it around afterwards to have your transmission relearn your driving habits. It really is optional, but speeds up the process. If you have the diesel, you'll also get a bunch of black smoke from the exhaust for the first few minutes till the engine relearns some stuff too.

Go ahead and disconnect and see if it will help with the light.

My husband swung the swivel seat around the wrong way and pulled the wire from the connector on our last trip. Glad I found this thread. It looks like I just need to unplug my starter battery, plug the wire back in to the connector, wait 10 minutes and plug the starter battery back in? Easy peasy, I'll try it this afternoon and see how I fare.

Glad you brought up this old thread. Looks to be a common issue. My passenger airbag light has been on the past two years, ever since accidentally pulling apart the connectors while turning the seat around. Reconnecting them didn't make the light go away. Dealer said 'high resistance' is the problem, offered to sell me a new connector, ~ $160 parts and labor. The contacts are not damaged and the contact engagement is solid. Took a pass on that. I did the battery disconnect as described here, didn't change anything. My concern is whether the airbag light means the airbag is disabled. Or if it's a benign error code which has to be cleared. Dealer said the airbag won't work; I'm not sure I believe that. By the way, can't clear it by means of either Scangauge II or SCT Livewire TS. Annoying that a simple disconnect produces this permanent error message that can't be eliminated without significant expense.

How did it work out for you, ExitFetish?

My wife did this with our passenger seat too. I tried to repair it and reset the light but it didn’t work. Then when investigating in better light I discovered I had one of the leads in the wrong position in the plug. Made sure when I reassembled it that the leads where in the proper position, reset with scanner, and the light went out. Reiterated with the mrs that the seat always swivels towards the doghouse and we haven’t had a repeat

That's ok shenrie. Sounds like you used something equivalent to what the dealer repair shops have - beyond anything I would have at my disposal. Cheers!
