Alright so got the strangest electrical problem I have ever seen in my EL. The airbag light comes on very slowly and faintly, and it wont display any codes, however, if the BRAKE PEDAL is depressed, everything works fine. Now it's not just the movement of the brake pedal that's doing it, because I unplugged the switch and bridged it, and then it works fine. So something from the brake switch is back feeding the airbag system. The ABS light also comes brighter when you press the brake pedal. I don't understand this. I have disconnected the ABS module, cruise control module, brake pressure switch, combo switch and clock spring, and it still does it. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hello,

Have you tried another switch ? If you hang one from the loom, see what you get.

Ended up being a combination of wiring to the ABS module, faulty dash loom and faulty clock spring
