    About 2 months ago, my Airbag light began blinking whenever I start my car. It blinks 1 time, then pauses, then blinks 2 times, then pauses longer, then starts over again. It repeats about 6 times and then stays on. So my guess is that it means Error Code 12. However, I have no idea what to do about it.

    I'm not a hard core mechanic type, but have fixed things like blower motors and shocks and brakes and such. I just need some advice on where to start with this repair. My guess is that somebody out there knows exactly what the problem here is and how to fix it.

    Thank you in advance for your super duper help with this blinkety-blinking problem.

    I appreciate it,
