Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that will turn the airbag light on. The airbag light will illuminate when either the airbag module isn't communicating or it has seen an issue somewhere in the system and set a fault code.

Possible causes for the airbag light include the module itself, a loss of power or ground to it, the airbags themselves, impact sensors, occupant classification issues, seatbelt pretensioners, the clockspring in the steering column, wiring and connections with any of the components.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a capable scan tool to see what fault codes are setting in the airbag module and then electrical testing will need to be done from there.
