The airbag computer has detected a problem in the airbag system. It will clear itself once the problem is fixed. The airbags will NOT deploy, even in a collision with the light on. Check the fuse(s) for the airbag system. One may have blown during the battery R&R. Other than that, unless you're familiar with the airbag system, do NOT attempt to diagnose and repair it yourself. Without the proper knowledge and tools you can accidentally deploy the airbags and be seriously injured or even killed! Best to leave it to a pro unless it's a fuse. HTH. -Jim
