    I have a 99 Grand Cherokee limited and every time I turn the wheel the air bag light comes on.

    Does anyone have any idea what it is? I checked the seat connections, cleaned the battery terminals, put new fuses in. I'm trying to sell it and need this fixed asap

    Welcome! Had a minor fender-bender lately? or a Hazzard jump? Sometimes a significant bump or jar could activate the crash sensors. Recommend not ignoring the issue or passing it on and to have a qualified mechanic check it out as your life or the future owner could depend upon properly functioning airbags. Or it could just be an issue with your seat belts....either way get it checked out, repaired and/or reset.

    Welcome! Sounds like the clock spring could be bad...

    You sure it’s not something to do with the muffler bearings I have heard when they go bad they can cause a lot of issues normally not heard of.

    Best bet would be a scanner that can read SIR codes. They can also pull history codes if stored. This would be the fastest and best way, Good luck-

    I agree with Chris4x4, my first thought was clock spring as well.
