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.
