1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee airbag light and warning chime

Asked by Jul 19, 2017 at 08:56 AM about the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi! So occasionally when I'm driving the airbag light on the middle of my
dashboard will light up and sound a warning chime. However, sometimes it
doesn't come on at all when I drive. I've noticed that it usually comes on
when i have to turn the wheel to the far left while driving very slowly. When it
comes on, it chimes once and then goes off immediately. It doesn't even
come on when I start the car. Is this something I need to spend a lot of
money on getting checked out, or just an error that I should ignore?

I wouldn't ignore it. Sounds like a loose wiring connection or clock spring issue since it lights up when you turn left.

I have a Jeep Patriot...Yesterday I got told my clock spring was defective. Will you believe me when I say the dummies at the part store's didn't know what a clock spring was?
