Most likely the crash sensor (located somewhere in the front of the vehicle) has triggered. Some can be re-set, most have to be replaced, otherwise the vehicle will not start.

Airbag light does not come on when starting a 1996 yoyota camry... plz help

Did it used to?
Her e are the options. If it used to, but does not now, could be a bad wire connection or a bad "air bag module" or defect in the computer.
In any regard, the air bag may not deploy when you need it to, if that light is not working.
That lack of a light might mean the circuit is now dead.
If it never did, any of the above conditions may be true, and one more.
The air bag may have deployed in a wreck and no one replaced it because of the extreme high cost, and you may have no air bag.
God bless your efforts.

I was in a wreck with my 1999 pontiac grand am gt v6 was not wearing my seat belt. should my air bags of deployed?

It really depends on the type of wreck you were in. Your seat belt being on or off does not have anything to do with whether or not the airbags would be deployed.
If they were not deployed it means that your car will not be labeled as totaled, which is a good thing.

What does it mean when the airbag light comes on?

Either the sensor in the bumper has lost communication with the airbag module, or the airbag module is bad, or the airbag package itself is damaged somehow.

The SRS warning light started flashing last Tuesday when the car (1999 Lexus ES 300) is running. What needs to be done? What may the costs be?

I had the same issue. Same year, same model. I checked the manual and a flashing srs light has to do with the sensors for the side air bags and seatbelts. I jiggled the wires under the drivers seat and reseated the plug. Problem solved. Check under the passengers side too.

How do you reset an air bag light in a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE?

The airbag light staying on could be an indication that the abs computer ( located under passenger front seat ). may have gotten wet. These cars usually let water in from the front strut towers. The light staying on indicates a problem with the computer, possible things that could happed:
a: air bag DOES not deploy in an accident.
b: air bag does deploy for no reason whatsoever.

either of those could be bad.

best to have it inspected by a certified abs tech or the dealer
