Most likely cause of this is the contact ribbon under the steering wheel has an open circuit, the part is called a AIRBAG CLOCK-SPRING CONTACT.

You will need to contact your local dealer, airbags are very dangerous and this is not a repair you want to attempt yourself.

Airbag ligth dodge grand caravan 2007

You cannot remove it unless you replace the airbag. I have the same thing on my drivers airbag. You will still pass inspection with the drivers airbag not working. To get the airbag replace, you are looking at about 3 grand, I just put a dark sticker over my airbag deployed light because I got tired of looking at it The airbag will not cause other problems for you. Just cover up the light and forget about it.

My 2006 Toyota has a dash light that just went on after a fill up. The light is the airbag ligth-it flashes and the manual says to take it directly to the dealer. Any chance this is a fuse?

I just reset my maintenance light and started the car to find a flashing airbag light. Reading the manual, the SRS checks a lot of things so I pulled each seat belt out to full and retracted about 3 times each, then moved front seats full forward and looked from the rear for connectors -- saw them all connected, but jut pressed them together to make sure, moved seats back. Finally, closed all doors, buckled belt, and crossed fingers starting car. Light lit for 6 seconds solid and went off. Hoping it stays that way. Had squib replaced under warranty in year 1. Now fearful of any repair since so $$$$ and you gotta have working airbags and not unforseen inflation. Hopefully light stays off ... hope it works for you.

Why is airbag light on?

when the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel.
