What does the Air Bag Warning Light mean?

The Air Bag Warning light is located on the instrument panel. When the light is illuminated, there is a problem with the air bag system and the vehicle should be inspected or repaired as soon as possible. Tip Like all warning lights, the Air Bag Warning light briefly lights up when the ignition is first turned on. The light is only an issue if it stays lit after turning on the engine.
