It should be right on the side of the distributor, a small ( usually grey ) plastic type box with 4 connections on one end if i remember right.

The air bag computer will have to be scanned and the code read to know what the fault the computer detects. The problem will have to be repaired for the light to shut off. Keep in mind, when the air bag light is illuminated the air bag system is deactivated. Meaning, in the event of a collision the bags won't deploy.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the input and advice, very helpful."
I had this problem on an '81 Cougar. It was dirt in the steering rack and /or proportioning valve. Rack and pinion systems are suseptable to sticking due to contaminated fluid. Also, if you used the incorrect fluid - that can be the cause of this problem.
You can try to change the fluid, that did help some on mine. In the end I needed to go to the salvage yard. If you change the rack - don't forget to have an alignment done.
