When the air bag light is on the air bag system has a falfunction and will no longer work until its repaired. So the system needs to be scanned with a computer for trouble codes. Once the trouble code is retrieved there is a test chart for that compnent. It will then need some manual testing to determine the root or cause of failure and repaired. The light will not go off and the air bags will not work until the problem is corrected
