In another thread HERE I have been querying a Flashing Airbag light on my Dashboard. The conversation was mainly to establish which Scanner is best to use and address the flashing light issue.

Having identified (I think!) the Error Code (B1338) whilst I await feedback from those who have provided suggestions and info on the best Scanner I have now trawled the internet for further guidance and to try to improve my understanding of what is going on.

I came across the attached document. Now whilst this applies to a 2011-2012 model and my car is a 2013, I understand that this will probably not be of any use to me. However looking at the pics in the attachment, particularly the yellow connector, this may be from where my issue stems. I have been replacing an interior passenger front door handle and at the same time was having a look at the window mechanism as the door glass is not going all the way to the top. In order to access the hole to get a look at the window mechanism, it was necessary to disconnect a yellow connector attached to the door panel. That yellow connector on my door looks suspiciously like the Yellow Connector in the pic of the attached document? Is there any agreement on this? If not, then my theory is junk! If it is the same connector, then it may be, per the words in the attachment, that a disconnection can results in a flashing Airbag light, just as I have! This being the case then, it seems to me that the Light simply needs reset??

Grateful for all input, thoughts and guidance. :)

Unplugging modules is ok, I just make sure to disconnect the battery first. I've forgotten to before, and it was ok, but you should.
Thank you.

With the Veepeak. Clearing the code is easy enough. I just wanted to feel better that there was no, more pressing, issue.

Thanks for all the input and guidance. Its very helpful and much appreciated🙂

You are supposed to write down the stations, if you don't have a memory saver, but a lot of vehicles now have a reserve that keeps the stations in there. You can probably pick one up cheap.

The only repairs I disconnect the battery for that I can think of off hand are starters, alternators, and modules.

What about seat memory? Is that not affected by disconnecting battery?

Any suggestions for a Universal memory saver?

I'd just get the cheapest one you can find that plugs into the dlc port. All they are is 9-12v back fed to the system. Years ago I had one that was literally just a 9v battery with a cigarette lighter adapter. The problem with those is that the 12v port is not always powered up with the key off, that's why the dlc is preferable. I've seen some clever things online where people just have converted 12v power tool batteries into a tool that works.

One touch windows and roofs also lose their memory.
