The SIR light on is indicating the system has detected an air bag system failure.
You can go to your local Auto Zone, Advance Auto or favorite mechanic and have the system scanned for for trouble codes. Once the trouble code is identified, the failed component or wire can be repaired.
If you wish to try and diagnose the problem, let me know the code.
Good luck, regards.

SOURCE: SRS

SRS stand for Supplymentary Restraint System, The purpose of the SRS light on your instrument panel is to alert you of a potential problem with your supplemental restraint system. It should blink seven times when you turn the ignition switch to ON or START and go OFF. A possible fault in the system can lead to any of the following: (a) The light does not come on when you turn the ignition ON. (b) The light stays on after the engine starts. (c) The light comes on while you are driving. Apart from the conventional causes of these faults (faulty airbag system), majority of the light indicator problem has been attributed to ignorance while fixing or repairing mechanical and/or wiring systems within the vehicle. If the SRS indicator light alerts you to a problem, have the supplemental restraint system inspected as soon as possible. If you ignore this indication, the airbags might not inflate when you need them. Likely Causes:

  • Steering wheel modifications
  • Faulty driver/passenger seat sensors for your airbag system (located under the seats)
  • Faulty seat belt mechanism
  • Tampered system components or wiring (e.g battery jumpering)
* Sometimes, a little adjustment of your seat belts and/or seat positions might fix the indicator problem over time (if the sensors are not faulty).
Precautions:
  • Do not modify your steering wheel or any other part of the supplemental restraint system. Modifications could make the system ineffective.
  • Do not tamper with the system's components or wiring. This could cause the airbags to inflate inadvertently, possibly injuring someone very seriously.
  • Tell anyone who works on your vehicle that you have a supplemental restraint system. Failure to follow the procedures and precautions in the official service manual could result in personal injury or damage to the system.
  • If all sensors are ok, the system can be reset using appropriate tools; refer to specially trained technicians.

SOURCE: passenger airbag turned off

You have a problem with the SRS. Working on this system can be very dangerous. For that reason I recommend you have this repaired by a professional.

Why is the passenger airbag light on?


Could be a problem with the sensor in the seat. The system thinks someone is sitting in the seat and the seat belt is not fastened.

Airbag light stays


The light comes on to indicate that the passenger side airbag is disabled. This occurs when there is weight, but less than 60 pounds on the passengers seat. Removal of the weight should cause the light to go back out.

Check that fuses 18 and 19 are both good (located in junction block under cover at left end of dash). And check that the ground wire for the airbag system is grounded. It is a wire with an eyelet that attaches to a fastener on the left side of the transmission hump near the airbag controller.

Its a weight sensitive sensor, so you would probably have to come up with some sort of resistor. I doubt you can bypass it.

How to reset airbag light in 1998 buick lesabre


Light is on because the system has detected a fault. A code read is needed to discover the nature of the fault and then after repair dedicated diagnostic equipment will be needed to clear the code.

Sometimes the airbag light will stay on when the passenger airbag is switched off, if it has that facility.

The actual problem might not be the airbag but the seatbelt pretensioners.

You have a bad Passenger Air Bag Deactivation Indicator. The bulb that shows when the passenger air bag is off.
Have seen alot of these go bad especially in police cars. The part number you need is 5W1Z-10A936-A.
