What Does It Mean If My Air Bag Light System Comes On?

The dashboard on your vehicle is full of many useful features that can provide you diagnostic information about the health of your vehicle. When you first start the vehicle, the computer chip in your vehicle should flash all the lights and make sure that things are working, as they should; however, if any of the lights don’t turn off, it might signify that something is wrong with the car.

One of these useful little lights on the main panel is an airbag light that usually looks like a small person with a ball shaped airbag in its lap. If you’re driving around and see your airbag light up on the dashboard, you can probably narrow it down to a few reasons. Either your airbag has recently been deployed and you haven’t gotten around to resetting it; or, it could also mean that there is a problem with the deployment system preventing the bag from functioning in the event of a crash.

What Should You Do?

Airbags play a significant role in keeping you safe in the event of an emergency. Even if you are the best driver on the road, you can’t control every factor on the road to ensure your safety so you should never ignore this warning light.
