When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks 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 the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.
THE LIGHT IS INDICATING THAT THE AIR BAG SYSTEM HAS A MALFUNCTION AND WILL NOT DEPLOY IF NEEDED YOU MUST HAVE IT SCANNED FOR THE ERROR CODE AND REPAIR ODDS ARE THAT IT HAS AN OPEN SIR COIL IN THE STEERING COLUMN

to change airbag, ul need 2 flat head screw drivers , first disconnect the battery then at side of steering wheel there is two holes. push in screw drivers till it touches steel pin,apply small pressure with one hand and pull one side of airbag and it should pull out, repeat on other side.
hi there should be a lock barrel somewhere in the front of the carit will be eithe rin the glove box, on the side of the dashboard on the passanger side, in the center console near the handbrake or to the lower right of thr steering wheel on the dashboard
with this you can use your car key to turn off the passanger air bag off (note- this will put the airbag light on)
