If you paid a dealer to fix this problem I would return to the dealer and let them know when it came back on, they should look at free of charge since you've already paid for this fix. It's not a bad idea to check online at the car manufacturers website for any possible recalls on your particular vehicle. I wouldn't take this lightly as you and your family's safety may be at stake. If you bought the car used you can find out if it's ever been involved in accident by ordering a VIN report online from a company such as autocheck or carfax. If the airbags have ever deployed and were not properly replaced by a certified dealership they could malfunction in the event of a collision.

How do I fix the Airbag light?

Have your local garage scan for codes and diagnose the problem. Quite often the airbag light comes on because of a malfunction in one of your seat belt buckles.

The service air bag is on. What does this mean?

I had the same problem years ago with my Dodge Dynasty. The airbag light came on for no apparent reason. I took it to the dealer and they said they fixed it. Two days later the light came back on again so I went back to the dealer and they told me there was nothing wrong with the airbag and didn't know why the light was on. A few years later I gave the car to my grandson and he took it out to the desert and drove it over a huge dirt hill (not very smart) and when the car came down over the hill the airbag came out uninflated. I drove around all that time with a useless airbag based on what the dealer told me. I would suggest taking it back to the repair shop and let them check it out. If they can't find out what is wrong I would definitely get a new airbag. I know they can be expensive but your life is worth a lot more.
Good luck.

I kerbed my vw polo 1.4tdi 2004 I have replaced the n/s wishbone,drive ,strut and hub carrier e.t.c but the power steering has now stopped working,does anyone know why this maybe? Also the airbag in the...

airbag light can only be sorted by the dealer,with a certificate for the vehicle mechanical for teh power steering then providing the pump is working ok then you will need to change the complete rack and pinion ,jack vehicle up then top up the fluid and turn the steering lock to lock to bleed system ,if that doesnt work then change the reck and pinion as the impact has most likely damaged the spool valve.

Airbag light remains on after changing fuse of rear wiper.VW POLO

This is a common occurance in vw's.
In order to turn off the airbag light you need to have a scan tool hooked up to your car because the airbag detected a fault of some sort, or it could be a faulty component in the airbag system itself.
