When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.

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.

YOUR VEHICLE HAS DETECTED A FAULT IN THE AIRBAG CIRCUIT IT WILL HAVE TO HAVE CODE RETRIEVAL DONE TO DETERMINE WHAT CAUSE LIGHT TO STAY ON,I URGE YOU TO DO THIS SOON AS WHEN AN AIRBAG SYSTEM HAS GIVEN A FAULT CODE AND TURNED ON THE LIGHT THE SYSTEM IS DIABLED AND WILL NOT PROVIDE PROTECTION IN ACCIDENT
