The only way to stop the light from flashing it to get it fixed. The dianostic system is telling you there is a problem with the air bag, which means it won't activate properly or at all.

There is a "clockspring" in the steering column that is probably broken. When the clockspring no longer makes contact, the airbag light comes on. The "clockspring" takes the place of the old slip rings and spring loaded contacts used in older cars and is used to transfer circuits from the steering wheel to the stationary column making the airbag, horn and speed/cruise control operational. To fix involves removing the airbag. Take it to the dealer.

Take it to a dealer. The air bag won't work while the light is flashing.

If the ABS light is flashing it means the system is malfunctioning but still working. The dash light behind the speedometer is burnt out.

The 1993 Mazda. reverse light switch is located below the shifter column. The relay switch can be seen by removing the center console.
