Mine was traced to the contact in the steering wheel of all things. Apparently the airbags also initiate a error signal. When it was cold the contact for the bag in the steering wheel would miss a little and I would get light after a turn of the wheel it would go away. Took me a day to take apart and clean but no issues in 2 years.
could someone point me to a thread where the proceedure for fixing these contacts is detailed? I have low brake pad and srs lights going on and off and I've found that if I turn the wheel to 11 o'clock neither light is on, if I turn to 12 both are on and if I turn to 1 the srs is on but not the brake pad warning light. I think it is the contact issue you refer to. read about this earlier but at the time I didn't think this was my problem and now I can't find the info anymore.
could the brake light flicker be part of the same issue? I do have to replace brakes but sitting in park with car running the brake light still flickers on and off and can be caused to go on or off based on wheel position. Maybe its a coincidence.
