Re: the airbag light came on and stayed on for no reason.
I have the same issue (which comes and goes often).
It is caused by a loose wire connection, used for the drivers side airbag located in the seat.. The connector for mine is located under the front drivers seat. There are a couple of connectors that are connected to a bar under the front of the seat. I don't recall which one is used for the Airbag sensor.

No, but your airbags may not deploy when you need it to like in an collision. Airbags have allowed me to walk away from an accident a couple of times and I wouldn't take a chance and not get it checked.
If it is not the fuse then it is the airbag sensor itself, I am sorry to say but requires you take it to an airbag specialist due to the explosives contained within the steering wheel. This will be costly and may return in the future it did in the 1 I imported and had to fix 3 times in 4 years after the first fix. If this issue is not corrected and you are in a crash it will not deploy as the airbag sensor is faulty, this is why this light appears to begin with. Hope this helps.
YOUR VEHICLE HAS DETECTED A FAULT IN THE AIRBAG CIRCUIT IT WILL HAVE TO HAVE CODE RETRIEVAL DONE TO DETERMINE WHAT CAUSE LIGHT TO STAY ON,I URGE YOU TO DO THIS SOON AS WHEN AN AIRBAG SYSTEM HAS GIVEN A FAULT CODE AND TURNED ON THE LIGHT THE SYSTEM IS DIABLED AND WILL NOT PROVIDE PROTECTION IN ACCIDENT
I hate to say this is one of the few times I recommend taking your car to the dealer. Messing with the airbag system could cause it to deploy in your face, which believe me is not a pleasant experience. If it does deploy, the cost of a replacement will come close to the book value of the car. The other alternative would be that whatever you did to the airbag would case it not to deploy when you most need it. In either of these situations you are much better off throwing a few bills at the dealer.
