What would cause my airbag light to come on?

The airbag light indicates that something is wrong with the seatbelts or airbags. This means that it’s probably not safe to drive with the airbag light on. If it stays illuminated in your vehicle, we recommend having it towed to the dealership rather than driving it yourself.
