IMO, this is not a DIY repair. Serious injury can occur, or the air bag may deploy prematurely or not at all, if you do something wrong. Take it to a professional to find out why the light is on. hmmmm if its a modern rangrover disco 2 or freelander it COULD be the becm ( body electronic control module but it shud show on a fault code reader My SRS light came on after my battery ran low. It requires professional attention, but only cost $40US for a check and reset of the light. After the battery went low on my 1996 Discovery, my SRS light came on too. You have to go to the dealeship to get it reset (count closer to $100 though). In my case, another problem surfaced (was I told), one of the connector got wet and they could not reset the light. Not sure where that connector is, but this is probably something you want to look at (as the first answer said, make sure you remove the SRS fuses before fiddling with the system, this is dangerous stuff).

If you mean that you have a warning light on, then once the problem that is causing the airbag warning light to come on is diagnosed and fixed, the light will reset itself.

The airbag light is warning you that something is wrong with the airbag system. In the event of an accident, they might not deploy, and you might get hurt or killed. Have a trained and qualified mechanic look at the system. It might be a simple problem.

When a car is being inspected, it cannot have the airbag light on. The light can be reset by an OBDii scanner, that will clear the code causing the problem or by disconnecting the battery for 30+ minutes.

if the airbag warning light comes on it means most likely that your airbag system is faulty, it should be taken to a professional to be sorted out but often on mondeos it can be a yellow plug under the seat that needs removing being wiped/cleaned and plugged back in which can solve the problem, try this on both drivers seat and passengers seat, if it doesnt work take it to a dealer.

Turning off the airbag warning light on a vehicle is unsafe. The light is on for a reason, either a bad sensor, or an issue with the airbag. Either way, you should bring this in to a mechanic to have it looked at.

You don't. The light is on because there is a problem and will remain on until the problem is fixed. When the problem is fixed the light will go out by itself. As long as the airbag light is on the airbag won't function if needed. A common problem with an older vehicle is the "clock spring" goes bad. All or some of the electrical items located in the steering wheel like the horn, cruise control and airbag stop working when the "clock spring" fails.

The air bag warning light is on because there is a problem with the air bag system. The light will remain on until the problem is fixed. The air bag will not function as long as the light remains on. See a qualified garage soon for necessary repairs.

The light come on when the system detects a problem and sets a trouble code. You should have it diagnosed by a trained technician. The airbag system is not for do it yourselfers.

First make sure there is a good fuse for the airbag light in the fuse box. If there is not a good fuse for the airbag light in the fuse box, then the airbag warning light will show on the dashboard. If that is not your problem, you can have a mechanic read the code which will cost you at least $50, and will give an indication what the problem is. If that is not your problem, you can have the mechanic look at your air bag inflator and they can tell you if there is something wrong with the system.

The only way to switch off the airbag light is to remove the airbag light or remove the airbag light fuse. The airbag light fuse will disable several other instrument panel warning lights.
