The airbags may not work in the event of an accident. The light will not go off until it is turned off. You will need to see a shop with a TECH II. The TECH II can talk to the SRS ECU and retrieve a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). The DTC will indicate the area of the SRS system where the fault has occurred. There are many possible causes for an SRS failure, but one of the more common faults is the ignition switch. DTC B1227 and B1228 are the codes that will be set. Good luck, Steve
