No light on digital dash clock?

Hey guys, so I have no light on the digital dash clock, is this a fuse problem or a bulb problem I need to replace on the digital dash clock itself? Thanks.

Yeah check radio fuses, interior lighting related fuses, etc

Pull the battery cable and check airbag fuses

The backlights are T5/286 bulbs. They don't burn out often, but the rare few times they have, that has been the answer. It's worth checking.

I'm not aware of any fuse that does only the backlights for the clock/radio display, not to mean there definitely isn't one. But it would seem highly unlikely to have a fuse only control those bulbs

Thanks for the info bro, appreciate it. Will look into buying those bulbs. Should be available at autozone?

Good chance. I bought 100 blue LED ones for $3 a few years back though. I can see tomorrow if I have them still, and if so, have no problem mailing some your way in an envelope

With nobody sitting in the passenger seat the one light in the center console should be on saying the bag is off, if someone sits in it, then it should switch that light off and switch the other light on in the center console

If the airbag light is lit in your cluster and/or both airbag lights are lit at the same time in the center console, then you have a fault you need to check out

LOL you're right it does switch off when someone sits passenger. I never even realized it. Thanks for letting me know.

The only air bag light I have is on the cluster, the one on top of the tire pressure indicator. Possibly a fuse problem?

If you have a light in your main cluster then you have a fault that needs scanned immediately

Okay, so weird thing happened today because I've scanned the car before and tried clearing it myself with the BlueDriver OBD2 and it could never do it. Today, I cleared the codes one by one and it actually cleared the airbag light.

Intermittent fault

Probably the airbag in one of the seats or the seatbelt connector, resistances can get wonky when the seats are slid and the springs get messed up and freaks the computer out

Do u know what the code was or what it was for? I would still disconnect the battery and check out that fault location for bad wiring connections

Commonly the passenger seat airbag wire gets janky from sliding the seat and the spring needs reseated in the plug on the car side of the plug

I didn't bother looking it up and just cleared them, but they were:
