The air bag light can come on for many different reasons. Most common is a broken connection, inside, where the spiral cable is located. This is the unit (commonly called a "clockspring" connects the steering column wiring to the air bag module located in the center of the steering wheel. An air bag system scan via a Toyota dealer service dept would confirm this. I would not recommend replacement of the spiral cable unless it is proven to be faulty via the scan. Other items that could illuminate the light are problems with either of the two crash sensors on the front of the car, the air bag main control module (it is under the center of the console..if coffee or soft drinks get spilled in the console, the connections for the main air bag moduel could get compromised). Before you start replacing parts that may not fix this, get a scan and replace the part that is indicated as faulty

When the air bag light is ON, the air bag will NOT deploy in the event of a collision. The air bag will not deploy while you are driving. As long as the light is on, the deployment system is deactivated.
