Hello,

I have just purchased (3 weeks ago) a 2015 200 from a Chrysler Dealer and within 300 miles the 'SERVICE AIRBAG SYSTEM' light has appeared and stays on ....
Very disappointed with the dealer, as at the time of the purchase the bumper to bumper warranty had expired and I was offered a warranty by the Dealer through Warranty Direct which I declined. Since posting on this forum, I have decided to go with MOPAR lifetime warranty, but I have yet to sign up.

Any suggestions as to what is wrong with the airbag system.......

Thanks

The MOPAR lifetime warranty is not available in Canada for some reason. Only the USA.

Unfortunately, your problem does require a dealer visit. The system will give a diagnostic code for the problem once it is plugged in to the cars on-board plug.
I had the same issue on a previous vehicle and it was the seat belt buckle. It worked, but still set off a code, so possible a broken wire or loose connection.
On your vehicle, it's a guess until you get the code to point in the right direction.
Lastly, seat belts, air bags and the related sensors are usually dealer only item.
Best to head to a dealer and get it checked.

Good choice on the service contract. Make sure it is an FCA / Mopar service contract and it will give you peace of mind.

Thanks filtru103,
just went back to the dealer and insisted on singing with LIFE MOPAR MAX warranty at a cost of $4115 plus tax. Will wait until the paperwork comes through from FCA and then I will make an appointment with the Dealer to diagnose the problem. I assume this fault will be covered under the MAX PLAN. Will keep you updated.

p.s. I am based in FL.

I had this happen, it ended up being a connector from the head rest airbag had come loose. Unzip the back of the seat cover and you should see wires coming down from the head rest and a black connector that is connected to the seat back, plug them back in firmly. No idea if the light will go away without having them clear it though. I paid for the dealership to diagnose & clear it, $100 later, turns out its a common problem..

Thank you scs, will try it out and will give you an update...........................
I wouldn't play with any airbags related connector...Go to your dealer...unless you want an airbag to pop at your face while driving on the highway. It is not because the above poster's problem was a bad connection that it is your problem. These cars have a lot of technologies and they rarely throw error codes for Nothing. Do not improvise yourself as a specialist if you are not...Just my 2 cents...

Thanks, have had a look at the you tube post re the B1C14 code. In order to check the wiring one needs to remove the drivers seat rear back squab cover so that one can have access to the wiring from the back. I undid the 2 zips on each side of the seat cover, but I am unable to figure out how to undo from the bottom as there does not appear to be a zip here. Can anybody help or suggest how to release the cover from the bottom (where is meets with butt squab of drivers seat).

Thank you

've dealt with 4 2015 Chrysler 200s air bag issues and I've found that the sensor under seats will cause your airbag light to come on I've disconnected all connectors under seats reconnected them and it seemed to fix problem. I would start there.
