Lights for the airbag shows a picture of a airbag deployed in front of a man sitting in a chair with his seatbelt on and it just started glowing on the dash. What's the deal??

Sounds like one of your front crash sensors went bad or the connection to it is all corroded. They're not really cheap but you can buy them used from a junkyard. Have it scanned first before you buy anything.


Usually means the air bag will not work when in a crash as well. I wonder if a car would fail a state inspection with a non working air bag?

Yes it would fail a state inspection.

Good to know - 77 - thank you.. Mine is only once in a while, and light will usually go out on a restart. I will check the connections to the sensors.


No problem.
