    airbag module, and clock spring. air bag control module. and if the seatbelt light is on too you will need the seat belt retractors, for every position that someone was wearing a seat belt during the wreck. Be sure to remove battery power and wait 2 minutes before trying any repair. And be CAREFUL this type of repair can hurt you serious, to fatal.
