AIR BAG LIGHT IS ON

2003 Dodge Truck • 95,000 miles

Hello, my name is paul. I am an autobody man and I have a problem with my Dodge Ram 1500. The air bag light started coming on and going off and the chime rang with it. Now it stays on all the time. Our Otc genesyis scan tool only gets me as far as telling me that there is an "ACM output curcuit malfunction error code". I dont think it is the clockspring because the cruise and horn never stopped working. Any help would be appreciated.

No, the module is testing itself.
