There is a sensor in the seat that senses someone in the seat. It might be bad or have a loose connection

    Not sure about the '97, but there is no weight sensor on the seat of my '99 Sunfire. The only wires run to the seatbelt latch, and provide an open or closed circuit depending on whether the belt is buckled. The light on mine stays on whether the seat belt is buckled or not, and whether the circuit is open or closed, so it must be something else. I guess I'll cover the light with a black sticker until I need to disassemble the dash for a more important reason than just removing the seatbelt warning light bulb!

2000 model year GM airbag light

to turn off the airbag light you will have to take it to a dealer and have the computer reflashed and they will tell you why the light is on. I know on my Chrysler sebring the airbag light was on and I found out from a friend that the connector under the front seat sometimes gets loose and that was the problem with mine.

Does it have a timing chain or a timing belt

In 1997 the Sunfire used 2 different engines.
A 2.4 overhead cam or a 2.2 overhead valve engine.
Both use a timing chain setup.
Hope this helps you along.
Best of the season to you.

The airbag light, on my 1997 Pontiac Sunfire comes on intermittantly preventing me from getting my inspection sticker. Is there something I can do to repair the problem without taking it to a mechanic?

Unfortunately, there isn't! AIrbag systems are nothing for the home mechanic to play with. They can be dangerous to work on and it's unsafe to just let a problem with them go.

Srs airbag light is on on my 99 pontiac grand prix

If the seat belt light comes on intermittently with the belt buckled, it may have a bad switch in the buckle or a loose connection @ the switch. This may also set a diagnostic trouble code in the srs control module & keep the srs airbag light on.
