My Dodge Ram Van 1500 has an airbag sensor that comes on--with 4 tones--occasionally.

May go weeks without it, but then it will go several times/day.

    Possible it's related to a recall from a while ago


    2001 Dodge Ram 1500 AIR BAGS, AIR BAGS
    NHTSA Campaign #01V153000
    Date Announced:
    MAY 08, 2001

    Vehicles Affected:
    216,100

    Summary: Vehicle description: Pickup trucks. Sound deadener material inside the steering wheel could become detached from the cover and housing. Note: The Ram pickup trucks were built at the Warren assembly plant ("S" in the 11th VIN position) from May 16, 2000 through October 23, 2000; St. Louis North assembly plant ("J" in the 11th VIN position) from May 19, 2000 through October 23, 2000; Lago Alberto assembly plant ("M" in the 11th VIN position) from May 23, 2000 through October 23, 2000; and Saltillo assembly plant ("G" in the 11th VIN position) from May 23, 2000 through October 23, 2000. Important: Vehicles that have already had the proper clockspring installed, according to warranty records, have been excluded from this recall. In addition, 1997-2000 model year vehicles that have had a suspect replacement clockspring installed, according to warranty records, have been added to this recall.

    Consequence: When this occurs, the material could interfere with the clockspring ribbon and cause an open circuit. The driver air bag system will become disabled, and the air bag warning lamp will illuminate on the instrument panel.
