My 1993 bonneville won't not start on Tuesday I notice on the dash it said
Infeasible restraint that was above the security word.Then the next day it said it but went away & the car startedI think that's what it said.

Ok so the inflatable restraint system is part of the air bag system. When you get in a crash the air bags will go off and the seatbelt has a tentioner that goes off too. That is what that light is.
The light comes on for 30 seconds to 60 seconds when ever you turn the key on. It’s called a bulb check. The security light is the one that prevents the car from starting. Dose your key have a black chip in the middle of the key?

I am not sure, but I was not in a accidentIs the air bag failing??I also have a interlock on the carMaybe those words always came on??

The light is a bulb check it comes on when the key is turn or should then go out after it starts. If the system was having a problem the light would be on all the time.
What I was saying is the inflatable restraint system is part of the airbag tensioning system.

The security light is on as the interlock system dose not recognize the key and prevents the car from starting.
