Question about 2006 Mitsubishi Galant
Your air bag system has detected a fault and shut itself down. A special scan tool is needed to troubleshoot the system--see your dealer or a good mechanic that has the right scanner.

The owners handbook states that it indicates a malfunction of the air bags and advises to take the car to a dealer.
But.. sometimes a dodgy connection can cause this on a lot of cars. Sometimes the connectors located under the seat cause trouble on many. Also, the connection to the steering wheel air bag.
To make sure this isn't a one off, you can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes then reconnect. See if the fault clears.
If it doesn't then there's a fault most likely. Whilst the battery is disconnected, have a check of the seat connections if you can.
If there is an SRS fuse, you can just remove that to disable the airbag system, rather than disconnecting the battery itself. This way you don't loose your radio settings etc.

SRS stands for Supplimental Restraint System. It's a fancy term for the airbag system. If the airbags have not actually been deployed in a crash, the indicator can be triggered if you turn on the ignition with part of the SRS system disconnected (for instance if you removed a seat and disconnected the wiring harness underneath), or if a component has failed.

Remove the negative battery cable for about 25 seconds to see if it will reset,if it does not,then the air bag module is bad,Rate if this was at all helpful,thank you.
