Question about Car Audio & Video
Did you try turning it off using a scan tool (a shop would likely have to do that)? Or were you trying to turn it off by disconnecting the battery to reset the computer? Many faults can be cleared with a battery reset but an airbag light has to be turned off with a scan tool. The scan will also tell you which bag is tripping the failure, so you know where to look for a problem if the light won't turn off with a scan tool.

1st when the
airbag light is on the system is disabled, so if u have an accident
they will not work, as to the common cause read below.
When the airbag light is on 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 th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel
