If it flashes four times, there usually is a yellow connector under the front seat. Just unmaking and remaking it sometimes cures the problem.

Check this ,

" If the air bag light flashes four times indicating a fault with the pretensioners, with the ignition off, disconnect the pretensioners yellow connectors which are usually positioned under or very near the seats. Wait a couple of minutes and then re-connect them. What happens is sometimes the circuit get a spike and illuminates the light, disconnecting then resets the system and the light goes out. If the light continues to flash there is probably a fault with one or both of the sensors.
