The buckles on the side of your seat have a few thin wires going into them and they get broken off which triggers the air bag light to go off. They can be repaired but you will have to brake the outer covering off the buckle to get at them, do some nimble soldering and glue the cover back together. The airbag light codes cannot be read with an OBD II code reader and only the dealership has the power to turn them off for now (but I'm working on that one still). TIP: Before you go messing with the system, remove the Negative lead off the battery and wait about 1 minute. The airbag system stays active for a short while on its own power supply, and you dont want to blow your steering wheel or dash apart and cause a really big problem.
