FLASHING AIR BAG LIGHT

1991 Mazda Miata

Electrical problem
1991 Mazda Miata 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 130, 00 miles

My 1991 Mazda Miata runs strong and performs well. There are no apparent problems. However the " air bag" light flashes intermitently five times, repeatedly.
To stop this flashing I disconnected the negative cable from the battery for two minutes according to my repair manual. This stops the problem for a brief period of time.
Any idea what is causing the flashing?

Please advise

5 flashes is the front impact sensor/circuit. Im afraid I have to suggest you take it to a shop that is qualified to work on air bag systems. These are nothing to learn on.
