OK so I was installing a motion sensor which ties into the stock JK alarm following the instructions my good friend yomondo wrote up a few weeks ago.
I however seem to be color blind and I spliced into a pink wire with an orange stripe due to poor lighting.
I was thinking that I had the purple wire with the orange stripe which is the wire that tells the jeep the tail gate is open.
This pink/orange wire is located on the floor on the passenger side by where your feet would be and is coming up out of the lower trim panel in the very lower front corner of the Jeep.
Still thinking I had spliced to the correct wire, I checked it with a volt meter and saw that it wasn't hot. So knowing that the wire I wanted needed to be grounded in order to trip the alarm I tied the pink with orange stripe wire to a ground. I was hoping to see if the dash would say gate indicating I had the correct wire.
It didn't. So I kept looking and found I had the wrong wire. I undid my splice and wrapped the wire with tape. I then spliced the correct wire and the motion sensor is working correctly and all was good... or I thought it was at least.
Then I went for a drive and now my airbag light is on.
Does anyone know what the heck that pink with orange stripe wire is? Is it even related to the air bag or if I am just having bad luck and its a coincidence the light came on when it did?
I checked all the fuses and pulled the battery cable off for an hour hoping it would reset with no luck. I tried an ODBII code reader and got no codes. Anything else anyone can think of to try?
