Well this morning the Airbag light turned off as normal. I will still get below there and see if I can identify the connector and perhaps unplug it, apply dielectric grease and re-plug, and check if the connection is stretched.

Lucky winner of this airbag issue here! Hit a good pothole ON THE PASSENGER side. Light came on. CL to save the day! Immediately removed the driver's side dash panel and driver's accessory panel to reveal access to culprit (driver's side airbag connector). Simply pressed firmly on the connector and moved the wiring harness around to ensure it's free and not being stressed. Started it up, and the warning light is GONE!

Oddly, I noticed what appears to be surface rust on the body of the portion of the airbag that connects to the connector to the wiring harness. Perhaps do to previous owner having had the A/C blockage TSIB after soaked carpets. Anyways, if the issue comes back, I'll apply dialectic grease to the connection and hope for the best.

Thanks for everyone who posted here cause it saved me a bunch of money too, for something that was 100% free. In my case the connector was on there just fine, but there was a bit of rust around the area which made me think the connection is corroded. Taking off the connector I see no visible corrosion, but I slapped in some dielectric grease and put everything back together and the airbag light is gone. This was a particular issue for me since there's a recall for my 07 IS250 and they can't do the recall with the airbag light on. Of course they offered me $700 to repair the issue, which is crazy considering this certainly seems like something Lexus should also recall. For now, the light is gone. If the issue comes back I'll have to find something stronger to clean the connector with.

Tip for anyone trying to do this, the panel you want to remove is between the lower airbag and the dash, so no screws are needed to be removed. You'll have to remove the plastic panel near the door first which you just pull on. Also the connector is removed from the center yellow tab on top of the connector. Very top of it. If your hands are too big like mine then there's 2 Philip screws to remove the lower plastic to expose two 10mm screws. There's 4 total to physically remove the offending airbag so you can have better access to it.

Hi all, Here are my 2 cents. I have a 2009 ES350 with only 40K and passg AB light ON..went and did the Takata recall..light still ON. Went to 1 LD and they couldn't figure out, then called corporate . Was advised to take car to another dealer in Michigan to run diagnostics (which they offered to pay for). Got diagnostics done, performed zero point calibration and light came ON after 30 miles. Was advised to call back if light comes ON, so I did. LD said that they will talk to corporate and then advise me. Got a call today morning from corporate stating that it could be wiring harness that's faulty and possibly needed to be replaced, the cost of which will run very high (not yet given estimate) but "will try to help with some portion of it (NOT guaranteed though but will try depending on the cost"..still awaiting the estimate (but my guess is $3-4K). Per some suggestions from some of the members on CL, I filed a complaint with the NHSTA to INCLUDE THE AIRBAG WIRING HARNESS in the Takata recall as they both are connected. They sent me a complaint number.
I would advise other members of the CL having similar problems to file a complaint with the NHSTA ASAP so the repairs can be covered under the recall along with Takata, even if our vehicles are beyond 72month/70,000 miles. The more complaints are filed, the stronger NHSTA will look into this.
I hope you all do the needful in helping us all to get this fixed, rather than making Lexus richer by paying for their faulty parts.
Thanks
Ej
