There are three most important components involved in the air bag deploy system. Airbag itself. Airbag Control Unit (ACU) or Airbag Module. Airbag Impact Sensors. If it is any problem in the components then Airbag Light stay ON. Sometimes there is a false code and AUC can be cleared and reset. This can be done by professionals and cost $60 to $70. Might be a loose connector or a defective component, in this case they might charge you more.
The computer you are looking for is called an ASC control unit and is located in the right hand side of the engine bay.
I advise you have the fault codes checked first as a new ASC control unit is not cheep and will require coding.
Did they replace the brake pad wear sensor? If so, try leaving the key in the on postion for 30-45 seconds (dont start the car) This is how we reset the lights on BMW's and the Mini's use a similar system for service lights
unfortunately the only way to find out what is wrong is to go to the dealer and have them pull codes. there is a bulletin that is for the front seat airbag wiring that covers cars 10 years or 100,000 if this is the problem then costs are covered and you should not pay a penny.
