I have a similar problem. My airbag light is on, but there aren't any codes. I don't know if the scanner has anything to do with it (I have a bluetooth OBDII scanner), but nothing is showing up.

To my knowledge, they came with 5 keys. I have a '99 and I have 5, so there's always a chance that it was a previous owner, unless the old keys were lost.

Just looked at the amp. Could I get some clarification on where the connectors are and how to test them? I'm not the best with electrical stuff.
