Basic rundown: Most recent cars and trucks has several sensors (impact sensors?) that triggers the airbag system to deploy when 2 or more impact sensors are triggered

An airbag light flashing (assuming your airbags hasn't deployed) means that an impact sensor was triggered (Maybe some idiot backed up on your car and didn't think any damages was done because there wasn't any visual damages, maybe you need to talk to your son about his driving =p)

That is a code for the air bag diagnostic monitor internal thermal fuse blown due to an intermittent short to the ground. Your vehicle needs to be repaired because the air bag will not go off in an accident with this problem.

If it is flashing a code, it isn't the ABS light. It is the air bag light. The ABS(Anti-lock Brake System) light doesn't flash a code. It simply illuminates when the there is a problom. The air bag light is the only one on the dash that flashes out a code. A 34 indicates a problem in the passenger's side pretensioner circuit. That could be a faulty seat belt pretensioner firing mechanism, it could be wiring or a connector, it could even be a problem in the control module itself.
