I pulled the housing for the passenger airbag light down today,.....there is a plug on the back of it,......unplugged it. No more annoying flickering light.

I will like to do the same fix you did, but I'm not sure where to start. Thanks

Make sure you inform any buyer of this. If someone else had an accident sans airbag......bad day
