5 Answers

It has to be diagnosed and fixed. A fault has been detected, worry less about just re-setting the light that what is wrong with your air bag system. The vast majority of the time it means they will not deploy in an accident, but there is always that small chance they will inadvertently deploy. A mechanic or dealer can disable them but the light will remain on

Each time the engine is started the airbag computer runs a self diagnosis. When a problem within the system is detected the airbag light stays on. Once you shut off the ignition the computer is cleared until you start the engine again and the self diagnosis cycle repeats. When the problem is fixed and the self diagnosis shows no more problems the system will reset itself and the light will stay off. HTH. -Jim

Read my post from 2 years ago. The only way is to get the system fixed. Your best bet is going to be the dealer on this. The impact sensors behind the front bumper and the clock spring in the steering column are the two prime suspects. But don't waste money throwing parts at it. The dealer needs to scan the airbag computer to see what the problem is. HTH. -Jim
