    Wow, on an 07? Did you bump something, maybe something hit your bumper while parked? I've also heard about some older models having problems with water filling up the sensors.

    Either way, if it doesn't go off soon I'd have that bad boy in the dealership pronto.

    That light came on for the first time in my 03 this morning. I hope it had something to do with the truck being covered in snow. I don't want to see a dealer service invoice anytime soon.

    Hey Sscotty, it's likely that one of the sensors got full of water. I'd think about waiting a day or two and see if driving doesn't get it to go off. Keep us updated.

    Thanks, will do. The warning didn't come back on after the first stop I made, so I got that going for me...which is nice.

    This is still happening, but I don't get the warning unless it's really cold outside.

    My wife's Durango has this light on. Her's is caused by the clock-spring inside the steering column. She has since also lost the horn, cruise and radio controls on the steering wheel. They all make contact through the same clock spring.

    I'm having a similar problem in my 2004 Sierra Work Truck. It didn't involve cold or wetness tho. I was driving it on a hot dry day last week and suddenly the service airbag light came on in place of the odometer and the passenger airbag OFF is lit on the rearview mirror even when the switch is set to ON on the console. Sometimes it goes away and then comes back. Its odd. Im going to check the fuses tomorrow.
