Replace the clock-spring contact under the steering wheel, it has an open circuit.

SOURCE: my renault megane cc's airbag warning and service

Quite often this is something simple like the connector under the front passenger seat .(often yellow in colour)

If not, then your local garage should be able to deal with it.

They will plug in a tester to read + reset the lights. If the fault persists , then they will deal with it.

It is a worthwhile investment to buy one of these testers ( OBD Readers).

You can get a fairly simple one off Ebay for £2o/£30 and these can be very useful in diagnosing (+resetting ) any future faults.

They work on most of the later cars

You need to get it plugged in to diagnostic scanner
Check your local auto electrician(a lot cheaper than main dealer)
It will usually be a faulty sensor/bad connection

I think you will find the Airbag is defective. Make sure you disarm this system before you touch anything, it can kill you.

Have you had the airbag fault codes read? Until you have that test run you will have no idea what part of the system is causing the problem and warning light. Also right now the system is automatically turned off due to the light being on by the control module..

Can autozone pull the fault code for a 2009 Cadillac Escalade Service Airbag light

No, the scan tool that autozone uses will only get to the engine trouble codes. It will not access the airbag or antilock brake, or transmission codes.

How do i get rid of check airbag message and spaner on my scean? Renault modus 1.4, 2006 model

airbag line , computer or airbag unit is faulty. repairing the fault will rectify the message. its probable that if the vehicle was not in an accident that it is a line probably under the passenger seat. play with the wires under seats with the ignition on and see if at any point the light disappears, if so repair that set of wiring as plugs corrode

Steering wheel started clicking and got airbag warning light on - renault megane 5 plate

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 1/2 hour prior.
