The most common reason for the air bag light to come on is a component in the steering column called the clockspring. It is the wiring connection for the airbag and steering wheel controls. It can fail and open the circuit for the air bag. In order to clear the light you will need a scan tool that can read the air bag trouble code and then determine if it is the clockspring or not. If the light is on then ther will definatley be a problem to fix before just clearing the light.

If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. The flashing light on your car is telling the answer you need. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing. Airbagsolutions.com has the fault code charts to tell you what is wrong and how to fix it!
