Possibly one of the sensor connectors leaks and there is water in the plug in. To find out what sensor it is you will need to get the code or start going around to all of them and disconnecting the plugs and blowing them out use a little WD40 spray and reconnecting, then see if the light goes out. But it is possible that a sensor did go bye bye. Note: you should remove the Air bag fuses and wait at least 20 minutes before attempting any Air Bag work, otherwise you could windup blowing all of the Air Bags and that gets expensive. If uncomfortable with any of this then take it to a shop you trust and have them check it out. Better safe than sorry. HTH
