Hi there. The code B1801 refers to an open in the driver horn button assembly. This means that the airbag center sensor could have an issue, the spiral cable could have an issue, or the wires from the steering column to the center airbag could have an issue. This code can come due to a defective driver airbag. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you troubleshoot the airbag light issue as it is a complex inspection.
