    You will need to get the air bag sytem diagnosed first. Light cannot be turned off. Light comes on because there is a fault in one of the compotents or wiring.

    Horn when pushed, not remote, and cruise control working? If not post and can advise further! Also, with a flashlight, look 'closely' under drivers seat for any broken wires, green in color. Let us know!

    The light can not just be "turned off.” This is a safety feature and the light is on because in the event of a collision the air bag/s will not deploy. The Safety Restraint System (SRS) will need to be diagnosed to determine the source of the problems and the correct repair. The diagnosis runs $ 59.95
