    The system is serviced by extracting fault codes, just like when the check engine lamp is illuminated, however, the code reader needed to read the codes is not inexpensive. cannot fix this without knowing the codes first, so you therefore cannot know the cost until a diagnosis is made. In some cases the light just needs a reset, but again, the code reader is needed for that as well.

    FYI, with the air bag light illuminated, the air bags will NOT deploy in the event of a crash.
