Question about Mitsubishi Montero Sport
The most common cause of an air bag warning light on your model car is the "clock spring" has failed. A clock spring is available at most national auto parts chain stores and of course any Honda dealer. There is no danger the bag will go off, but it may malfunction in an accident. The clock spring is the enclosed device inside the steering column just below the steering wheel. It is the device that allows one to turn the steering wheel and have a circuit that remains intact to deploy the drivers side air bag (if triggered) regardless of the clocked position of the steering wheel. If you are not comfortable replacing inflatable restraint systems parts, I recommend you go to a qualified independent mechanic in your area. On post-1996 cars and trucks, you should be able to hook up an OBD II scanner and get the fault codes. If you get a code that indicates Driver-Side Air Bag Circuit - High Resistance or Open in Circuit, that code would refer to the clock spring. If you need help with the codes and what they mean, just come back here and we will try our best to help. Good luck and let us know if you have any follow up questions!

After disconnecting the negative battery cable, wait for at least 30 seconds for the SRS module to deplete its stored energy.
