You need to scan the car for the fault code or codes since the light is on, they are code stored in the cars memory. A local auto part store can sometimes do it for free. Post the codes back here, or have a mechanic look at it.

You are correct on the air bag codes, you need a special code reader for those, most garages and dealerships have them.
