UPDATE FIXED* Clock spring replaced problem solved! - Airbag light stuck on

Original Post ***So... anybody ever have this light come on randomly for no reason? Ive had the truck 7 years and never had this issue.

I believe any recalls that were out for the 4runner airbags have been addressed

I checked under seat connections, all looks and felt fine. I don't want a takata airbag to the face.***
----------------------------------------------

Update*** Had the code scanned which after doing some google searching all signs pointed to Clock spring. I ordered an OEM genuine toyota part off ebay. Part number in picture.
-Also disabled my TPMS light while I was already there.

Quick Write up with steps. :

-Disconnect Battery for at least 10 minutes.
-3 Phillips screws around steering column shroud (must turn wheel side to side to get each screw but always return to center)
-remove shroud and small plastic cover plates on each side of wheel
-Remove 2 T25 screws that loosen but dont completely remove
- Pull horn/airbag assembly towards you gently.
-disconnect Horn ground wire, Radio control Plug and the Red and Black airbag power (from the airbag side!) CAREFULLY
-Remove horn/airbag completely
-19mm nut for steering wheel
-Always return wheel to center after loosening nut
-use steering wheel puller( I didnt) or Bang on the wheel a few times and it will come loose, then simply pull towards you.
-Careful of wires!
- remove wheel completely
-Remove 2 plugs on bottom of Clock spring Black one and yellow one. CAREFULLY not to bend the pins!
- Remove 4 small phillips screws holding clock spring
-install new clockspring and make sure wheels are straight and the clockspring is set to center!!!
-retighten 4 phillip screws
-carefully break orange tab off and make sure its still center!
- replug in the 2 plugs to the new clock spring on the bottom.
- reinstall steering wheel snug!
-Becareful of wires!!
-Plug back in radio wire, ground to horn and airbags CAREFULLY
-Snap center horn/airbag into place and retighten T25 screws
-Reinstall Shroud
-DONE!

Prob need to get a cheap copy of techstream and read the module for faults for better direction. There's many more points of error than the under seat plugs, what made you go to those? Recently have the seats out?

Nothing really made me go to those other then its easy access, since I was on my way to work when this happened this morning. I have read other threads in the past on other toyota's that the wire harness under the seats and to the belts could get weak or frayed over time causing similar issues.

The light went off when I drove it on lunch and then came back on while driving. so something is weird. Im going to try to get it scanned later. Didnt know if there was a common culprit to look for though.

I believe its for the Clock spring.

Awesome! "Easy" enough. I love it when people actually come back with a conclusive post and then you go even further to explain. Good work.

Thanks! I couldnt agree more, the most frustrating thing is searching the forums to find people who beg for help with the same issue and there is no resolution. So i end up reading 10 threads that have no ending. There should be some sort of time limit on theads that dont end in a result, where the OP most check a box after a month with a resolution or something unless its a different thead type or something.

I restored my steering wheel to stock, from a Taco, and the airbag light stayed on. No codes popped up in the scanner, so i figure the Dealer has to fix it. Never could find anything else that worked.

I didn't replace the clock spring, but I did replace my steering wheel. Left the battery unplugged for 30 minutes before taking anything apart. Took out the old steering wheel, transferred all the parts over to the new one. Fit flawlessly. No airbag light.

Kind of related, but I bought a 2007 Ford Fusion AWD 4 year ago. About a couple weeks after I purchased it, that exact airbag light came on, even though I didn't work on the car at all. Took it to the dealership and pulled the codes. They said they were pretty sure it wasn't the module or sensor, maybe something in the wiring (sounding expensive). I elected to stay with the light on since I rarely had a passenger.
