98 SRS KNEE AIRBAG THROWING CODE

1998 Kia Sportage • 150,000 miles

I removed the knee airbag on my 98 kia to access the power window relay and when I put it all back together the airbag light is flashing 1 long flash followed by 8 short flash. My son also found what appears to be 4 teardrop shaped weights that look like they may be some kind of inertia switch part. If they are and fell out while I had the unit out, where do they go back in? Thanks for all you do!

Code 18 is a fault with the brake switch or a problem with the circuit between brake switch and ABS control unit. Are the brake lights working correctly?
