Nah... those are the wires that turn on and off that annoying light on the dash and the chime or ring or christmas tree noise that reminds you to put your seat belt on.

Airbag lights go on while turning the wheeel

Most likely a bad contact or a chaffed wire in the steering column.

My Toyota truck had a recall on an air bag wire in the steering column that could chafe, causing the air bag to deploy, so you might want to have this checked out.

You need to find out what the fault code is. It will direct you to the area responsible.

Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor
NOTE: The safing sensor is internal to the air bag diagnostic monitor (14B056) and is not replaced separately.
The air bag diagnostic monitor continually monitors all supplemental air bag restraint system (SRS) components and wiring connections for possible faults in the system. If the air bag diagnostic monitor detects a fault in the SRS when the ignition switch (11572) is in the RUN position, a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will be displayed by the air bag indicator, located on the instrument cluster (10849).
The air bag diagnostic monitor does not deploy the air bag in the event of a collision. The LH or RH air bag sensor and the safing sensor determine when to deploy the air bag.
The air bag diagnostic monitor illuminates the air bag indicator for approximately six seconds when the ignition switch is in the RUN position and then turns the indicator off. This shows that the air bag indicator is operational. If the air bag indicator does not illuminate or the indicator stays on or flashes at any time, a fault has been detected by the air bag diagnostic monitor.
DTCs may not be displayed for approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in the RUN position. This is the amount of time the air bag diagnostic monitor requires to perform all tests and verify system faults.
Each DTC (a series of flashes and pauses of the air bag indicator):
  • Represents a two-digit number.
  • Is always displayed at least twice.
If the diagnostic monitor detects a fault in the air bag system, a DTC will be written to the diagnostic monitors non-volatile RAM (NVRAM). This DTC will then cause the lamp to flash a lamp fault code (LFC) on the air bag indicator and can be retrieved with the New Generation STAR (NGS) Tester. After repair, the DTC may then be cleared from the NVRAM.
If a system fault is present and the air bag indicator is malfunctioning, an audible tone will be heard. The tone is a series of five sets of five beeps. If the tone is heard, the air bag system requires repair.
If a fault exists that makes unwanted air bag deployment possible, the air bag diagnostic monitor will attempt to remove deployment power by turning on a solid state switch to blow the 10A battery fuse 2.
If the 10A battery fuse has successfully been blown by the air bag diagnostic monitor, the air bag diagnostic monitor will not attempt to blow it again until the proper fault has been repaired and cleared (see Diagnostic Trouble Code Clearing procedures for details). The air bag diagnostic monitor will store both the unwanted deployment DTC and the loss of deployment power DTC. The loss of deployment power DTC is the highest priority.
DTCs are prioritized numerically. If two or more faults occur at the same time, the fault having the highest priority will be displayed first. After that fault has been corrected, the next highest priority fault will be displayed.
The air bag diagnostic monitor includes an internal backup power supply. This feature provides sufficient backup power to deploy the air bag in the event the battery (10655) or battery cables are damaged in a collision before safing and air bag sensors close. The backup power supply will deplete its stored energy approximately one minute after the positive battery cable is disconnected.
The DTCs can be retrieved with New Generation STAR (NGS) Tester using the Retrieve/Clear Continuous DTCs option. Any DTCs stored in the air bag diagnostic monitor will be displayed on the NGS along with a brief description of the DTC. If no DTCs are present, the NGS Tester will display a SYSTEM PASSED message. This option can also be used to clear DTCs from the air bag diagnostic monitor memory, as long as the concern no longer exists. Once a DTC is logged into the air bag diagnostic monitor memory, it will stay in memory until 255 key cycles have been recorded or until the NGS is used to erase the DTCs. Once 256 key cycles have been recorded since the concern was last detected, the DTC will automatically be removed from memory.

My 2005 gmc envoy airbags did not deploy on impact or even when the firefighters tried to deploy them... what the hell is this? my kids could've been in the vehicle.

If the airbag light had been on so long that it bunrt out then the light wouldnt be on to tell you they wont work. If the SRS fuse was blown or removed the airbags and the light won't work. If the car had been repaired by a less than honest repairman and the airbags were replaced with dummies that trick the light to being out.. The SRS bags are expensive and the triggers and the wiring are all supposed to be replaced if the bags were deployed in an accident. A dual bag system that has been deployed can cost $4000 to replace correctly, never mind the other work thats required to make the car safe and roadworthy. A car facts report may find the person thats responsable for the less than complete repair. If any senser or air bag doesnt complete the circuit to the controller the warning light SRS or AIRBAG orange or yellow will be on and the bags with the light on will not work. I hope everything comes out OK as to find this out you had to be in a hard accident and the fireman has been trained to protect the wreaker and rescue peaple by causing the air bags to deploy if they didn't. So the bags cant hurt them as they work to remove the busted car from the crash site

The Air bag light came on solid

If you want your air bag to work, you should take the vehicle to a shop for service. This light indicates it probably won't deploy in an accident.

Airbag light is on.

Please go to thisweb site and they will tell you how to figure out what is wrong with air bag system, the computer or clock spring or other problems could cause the air bag to deploy. do not touch this without asking them becuase if you touch the wrong wires you can deploy the air bag.

Air bag light flashing (red)

Airbags dont need to be replaced. There is an issue with the electrical that connects to the airbags. This is not a DIY project because if you connect the wrong wires it could cause the bags to deploy and you could get seriously hurt - or cost $3,000 if your lucky to replace the bags

Airbags deployed

You have to disconnect the battery, replace the air bag modules (air bag modules are the things that explode in your face) and the crash sensors and the control unit or module that came with it. Reconnect the battery and the car should start. Hope this is helpful.
