So my airbag light just came on today. Does anybody know what may have caused it or any fixes. Will the dealer fix this since i'm over my 36,000 warranty.

Unless you've got access to a scan tool to see if you can pull any codes, the problem could be anything from a loose connection to the airbag controller module going bad. It would be safest to take the car to the dealer than try to fix it yourself, due to the sensitive nature of the airbag system and the risk of accidental deployment.

Yeh I was going to the store and had stuff on the seat,but when I came back out I had nothing on the seat and it came on. I'm going to see the dealer this week sometime.

Wait, which airbag light is on? The one in the instrument cluster (by the speedo), or the one in the center console (by the lighter socket)?

That light will come on if anything triggers the sensor... On my car (the light by the shift knob) the bulb is burnt out, which triggered the light on the dash to come on... So it could be something as simple as that.

You will have to check with the dealer, but I believe that air bag warranties are longer lived than the rest of the car--perhaps as long as the engine/drive train warranty.
