It means there's a problem with the circuit for driver's side air bag. Check for loose wires, bad ground etc. If you can't find it, have it scanned

When checking this out, do not use a self powered ohmmeter! Doing so will deploy the airbag! Be very careful when working on the airbag system! HTH. -Jim

Thank you I will do you think it's best to disconnect the battery before I start fooling around with it

Absolutely!! Once you disconnect the battery wait 5 minutes before working on it! The airbag system has a power reserve in case the battery becomes disconnected in a collision. The 5 minute wait time will allow the airbag system to discharge. HTH. -Jim
