Answers :

Usually\015\012a lit airbag can be attributed to faulty wiring, crash sensor behind\015\012the front bumper, bad connection between the airbag and lower part of\015\012the steering column, or a faulty airbag module. I've also heard of clockspring wiring harness problems. An airbag "on" light means that your airbag system is INACTIVE. Be careful. Check for a safety recall. You must have the battery disconnected for at least 15 minutes for a reset and double check your battery. I know it seems simple, but a poor battery will trip a code. 15 minutes allows the SDM (Sensing \015\012Diagnostic Module or Airbag computer) to discharge the backup power for \015\012airbag. Do this especially if you're poking around the controls. It sounds like a bad connection which is not allowing communication between all parts of the system. Also check the fuse (can't hurt).
