You need to have the air bag system codes pulled to find out the problem. The clock spring unit is the most common failure.

Ditto what tennisshoes said. Also check the plugs under the front seats. They can come unplugged or a wire can get pinched or broken.

Does the battery need to be disconnected to check plugs? And Can I pull up codes or is that a dealer item?

No battery does not need to be disconnected. Just do not have the key on. Autozone can scan the codes for free.

Autozone in my area can't do a Jeep Air bag with their equipment, so good luck finding someone with Jeep protocol for SLS.

turn key on and off 3x and codes will flash on. write them down and check online.
