So the airbag light just came on my 2008 fortwo. I did have a tire blow out a couple days ago and got it replaced and I’m wondering if that was the cause of it if it damaged some wiring.
My scanner can read/clear abs and srs codes. I get the code B1232 with no description of the fault. When I go to clear it it does not work because it says the fault is still present.
anyone have an idea of what this could be referring to?

According to the Internet, which is never wrong... the code is for the refrigerant pressure sensor (B12) :)

Well the air conditioner is working fine lol and why would that trigger an airbag light?

So, you have two separate and unrelated problems caused by the aftershocks of the blowout. The airbag light came out because the connectors in your steering wheel or clockspring might have shaken off, OR the prev owner had taken out the steering wheel (for repairs?) and not done the work properly. And that B1232... well, it's your refrigerant; probably broke/ cracked a cooling tube.
