Had water risen by the creek next to where I parked this car where water has gotten into the trunk. Dried everything, new battery, still drying carpet. Car started, airbag light is on. Trying to figure out whether it is because this water got cut in the flooding process or if it's just water in the connectors, or if this wire is the way it is from factory. Can you tell me? It's the pink wire underneath the passenger side front seat.
Do you

Hi again. Sorry for all your issues due to that flood. Can you attach a picture of the wire and I will let you know what I think?

Do you have any idea what the wire is going to? Have you followed it at all to a connector or harness or component? I looked but didn't find a pink wire on things related to the seat so I suspect it is in a harness if it is OEM. Thanks

Sorry, took the pictures and forgot to attach them. It goes into the box in the picture, which is mounted to the seat bottom, along with another connector.

It looks like a factory connector and that module that it goes to does look factory. However, I am not sure what module would be under the passenger seat on this vehicle. Can you get a picture of that label on the module in the last picture? Or if you can just pull it down and get a part number I will be able to find out all the detail about it and the wiring.

However, that is clearly cut and so finding out the detail about this may help explain why it could be cut. Thanks

Good evening,

This looks like either from the seat belt light or a power seat.

If it was airbag-related, those harnesses are yellow in color.

Yes. Disconnect the negative cable on the battery and reconnect that wire.

Put everything together now I have this code. Can you tell me if it may be related to the wire maybe? Maybe was not meant to be connected? Airbag light is on, deleted it and came back.
