On the instrument cluster? It should never be on, except when you turn the key to 'run' without starting. You should see it, yellow icon. If you don't then it may be bulb. And it's a real pain to DIY. If you mean the passenger seat air-bag it will be lit, meaning off until occupied, then go off but will never spell out ON or OFF

On d dashboard, the Airbag icon is always showing yellow. But the ON and OFF icons do not show even if passenger and driver's seats are occupied. Recently, when I inserted my key in the ignition switch and turn the key, without. starting, the ON and OFF were both lit at the same time and went off after about 5 seconds.

In that case it needs service. I didn't understand that your yellow icon was on all the time, that means a fault in the air system and explains the odd behavior of both on and off at the same time. That was my mistake, about spelling ON and OFF. Now I know what you are talking about. The air-bag system runs a self-diagnostic every time you start the car and if something is wrong the yellow icon will remain lit on the instrument cluster. This is not a DIY fix...sorry to have to say that. But you can't ignore it either. Most likely it's a situation where the air-bags will not deploy in an accident, but there is a small chance that the fault may deploy them at any time. You can have the entire system disabled, and remove the danger but will never pass inspection when time comes.
