I was driving and the service air bag words came across my message center and the number 4 is also displayed

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Nothing as what we want to know is what the number 4 means

Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Can you tell me if everything else seems to be working fine and if there are any other lights turned on?

No other lights are on but we started car this am and light is off
Cadillac Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 2 years ago

Thank you. Most of the time if the light comes and goes like this it is caused by a failing clock spring in the steering column or a bad occupant sensor. Typically it is the clock spring though. You may need to have this taken care of if it comes back. Please let me know if you need more help.
