    Ok, so my airbag light is flashing code 34. I also had fuse 4 blown. I have replaced the fuse and it is fine.
    Code 34 is driver side airbag low resistance or short. I have tested the connector. With it unplugged, it reads .02 ohms. With it plugged in, it reads between 1.4 and 2.2 ohms. It is my understanding that the plugged in reading is within normal limits.
    Any ideas on what I should do next?

    Thanks.

    I would get some electrical contact cleaner and clean both sides of that connector. Aluminum contacts oxidize over time, so when you unplug a connector it may change the resistance of that connector. The airbag system tests the resistance on the wires to make sure the signal to "deploy" goes through correctly.

    tl;dr - unplug that airbag connector again and spray some electrical contact cleaner on both sides.

    Thanks, Chythar. I just got in the car to do what you suggested, started it up to pull in the garage, and it was gone. Not sure if it's the 110 degree heat or if it requires a certain number of startups with it clear to turn the light out, but it's now gone.
