Don’t Ignore It.
If your air bag (or SRS) light is on, that’s an indication of a malfunction in the air bag system, sometimes referred to as the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). Your vehicle on-board computer continuously monitors the proper function of the air bag system. Once it detects a fault, it will turn on the dashboard warning light. The air bag light should come on when the car is first started, along with other warning lights and turn off within a few seconds. If the light stays on, or comes on while driving, don’t ignore it, have it check immediately. Your air bags may not deploy in the event of a collision. Air bags save lives. Without the air bags working properly you are putting yourself at risk and the risk of other passengers.
