I'm looking at purchasing a used car. The one thing that stands out is that it says in the description, "air bag light is on". The car is a 2006 Suzuki Swift with low kilometres. Is the light a sign of something bigger? I've no mechanical experience with air bags except for the one accident that deployed mine. Is it expensive to have it fixed? IS there a fix? Thanks in advance.

An Air bag light means a fault in the system, usually a sensor. Only way to know is to have it checked out, and I always recommend having a used car inspected by your own mechanic before purchase, that way you know what your buying. Good Luck!
