When the air bag light comes on, this means there is a problem in the restrain system. Unfortunately, there are several sensors/parts that are monitored in the air bag system from an air bag sensor, to a problem in the seat belts and there is no way of knowing "where" the fault lies until you get the "codes" read. You will need to find a shop that has a scan-tool that can read air bag codes, as most local "free" scans or "personal" scanners do not read air bag codes. Most shops charge anywhere from $40 - $65 for this service, but, like I say, it is the only way to know "for sure' where the problem lies, and where to start your diagnostic and repair process.
