The codes (three flashes then two flashes) is a signal which can probably be determined with an internet search. There is a sensor defective somewhere which is not receiving input from a device.


The three flashes, followed by two flashes indicates the drivers side airbag circuit is open or has a high resistance. Research the repair thoroughly if you intend to attempt repair. If you accidentally deploy the airbag, you will be surprised at the cost of a new one.
