Q: Problem with airbag light.

asked by on

Airbag light is always on.

A common reason airbag lights come on is because something is interfering with the seat belt switch — the sensor that detects if the belt is properly fastened. If there is nothing in the seat belt I would have a technician look at it and pull the codes for the air bag light on the computer.
