When the air bag light is on the air bag system has a malfunction 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 then b repaired. The light will not go off and the air bags will not work until the problem is corrected.
