    remove the battery cables and hold the positive and negative cables (WHILE NOT CONNECTED TO BATTERY!!!) together for about 2 minutes. This procedure will reset your vehicles KAM (keep alive memory) and will get rid of check engine/air bag lights as long as everything is connected properly or if dont work
    It means the air bag system has a problem and has been deactivated.

    When you turn the key to on the SRS computer runs a self check of all of its sensors and actuators. The computer detected something wrong, and turned on the light.

    Now would be the time to take it in to a shop that has a scan tool that can access air bag/SRS systems.

    They will be able to see which sensor the computer is not happy with and go from there.

    The car is perfectly safe to drive with the air bag light on. But the air bags will not go off in a crash.good luck and happy 2011
