2006 Chev Colbalt Service Airbags??

I have a 2006 Chev Colbalt. Drove to the store, did my shopping then got back in the car and drove away and the "Service Airbags" light was on.
My first thought was someone hit the front end while I was shopping but the didn't, there are no scratches or dents so what happened and how do I get the light to go off??

    Thanks for your reply bunnydawg.......I have no idea how to check the relay.

    Can I take it to the auto store or dealer ( yes i hate to go to them for this cause im sure its gonna cost me!) and let them put it on the machine to see or what?

    I was wondering if maybe it could have gotten dust in it or something as we live in AZ and there seems to be an abundance of dust here.

    If it's the relay, are they expensive or hard to fix?

Seems to be my mantra this time of year (condensation). check the relay for the airbags... be advised because it is the airbag... to prevent accidental deployment of the airbag when you replace the relay... unhook the battery while you do that.

Electrical problems with 2006 Nissan maxima

I would start with checking the computer for trouble codes.
Sounds like a bad connection in the dash wiring or key switch, but the trouble code might steer you in the right direction.

ses might stand for service engine soon, did you replace the batterie? or a shop did it for you ? if it was a shop take it back to them and let them know what's happening but if you did it it has to be diagnose with the famous scan tool to se what information the computer has stored, you know like codes
