I had this problem myself and come to find out it was a blown fuse which also controls the outside temp display and compass built into the rear view mirror. Check in your fuse box located under the hood on the driver side, open the big black box cover and locate the airbag fuse. Pull it out and check to see if it is burnt. Replace it if necessary.
Hope this helps you

the most common cause of this light is an open circuit in the coiled ribbon contact to the steering wheel airbag, it is under the steering wheel, it looks like a clock-spring and it always the steering wheel to move while maintaining a physical electrical connection to the airbag module on the steering wheel, after thousands of times of coiling and un-coiling it breaks and then the airbag diagnostic monitor senses the open electrical circuit and turns the light on. U must disarm the airbag to remove the steering wheel to replace this contact, if this is not done the airbag can fire and cause serious injury.

First of all you need to get this problem fixed ASAP. While the airbag light is illuminated, your SDM (Sensing and Diagnostic Module aka: the brain of your airbag system) shuts of power to the airbags. In which, if you are in an accident your airbags will not deploy while this light is illuminated. You need to take your vehicle to a GM dealership. A Tech 2 scantool is needed to retrieve the code from the SDM. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon. Good luck and hope all works well.

It could be that your knock sensor circuit is working perfectly.You may have a knock that it is reading for long periods.
Try running it disconnected, and see if there is a clatter or knock when accelerating lightly.
You could have a vacuum leak.
