Was the vehicle in any kind of light collision, hit a pothole, curb or something like that?

With no light impacts, the issue is most likely that the passenger detection calibration has been lost. This is, unfortunately, a VERY common malady with these vehicles. It will be ok one moment, and the light will be on the very next start. More unfortunate than that, the system cannot be reset without benefit of a compatible scan tool. The light comes on to alert you that there is an issue with the sensors in the SRS system. The air-bags will NOT deploy randomly because the light is on. The good news is the detection calibration is a reasonably inexpensive repair.
