Q: Airbag light on

asked by on

The airbag light is on.

The airbag light indicates a malfunction in the system. The system is always monitored for faults. It could be the airbag itself, wiring, or the impact sensors. The system will need scanned to see what trouble code is set. If you need assistance, I would have a certified mechanic diagnose your Air Bag Light and come up with the necessary repairs.
