Default Service Airbag System Message/Alert-New 2013

Hey everyone, long time forum reader first time poster here and I'm in need of some help. My brand new 2013 Ram Hemi Crew has been displaying a "Service Airbag System" message in the dash. It comes on and goes off periodically. At times it will go many miles with no message and then for some reason light up and cycle on and off several times over in a short period of time. I searched the forum here and found a few threads that mentioned the fuse/bent fuse arms as being the culprit. For those that have experienced this problem and solved it -was it the fuse? What specifically about the fuse should I look at? Any other solutions? Directions? Advice? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Had the save exact problem and the fuse was just lose, a lot actually were. Look in the manual for the location and just give it a good press down.

My 13 Laramie did the same thing after 200 miles. It was the Clock Spring in the steering column the dealer can tell you what it is with the scan tool.

Thanks for the replies, pulled the fuse out then gave the fuse a good push down this evening to make sure it was firmly seated down in there and will drive it around a bunch tomorrow to test it and if that doesn't do it I'll look into the clock spring. I'll update once it's fixed.

Had the same issue and they replaced the air bag module and no more issues.
