Unfortunately, there is no 1-answer, "it's this..." type of answer here. When the air bag light comes on, there is a problem in the system somewhere. This can be a problem with the seat belts, to a problem with an impact sensor to problem with the seat occupancy sensor (which is common on these vehicles!). At this point, the Diagnostic Trouble Codes will need to be scanned from the on-board computer. These trouble codes will more accurately point to the part or sensor that has the problem and from there, the correct repair can be made. "Some" local parts stores, like AutoZone, will have the correct scan-tool to scan the codes. If you cannot find one that does, then unfortunately, a shop will be needed. Like I say though, the passenger's seat occupancy sensor is a common fail item here, but again, we'd need those codes to confirm.
