Airbag light

Electrical and Electronic

Vehicle Information: Year: 1998; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5 liter; Total Mileage: 50000;

When the airbag light is on exactly what does it mean? Obviously a fault has been detected but is the airbag system totally deactivated? Will it still deploy in some non-standard mode? Does deployment depend on what fault has been detected? Or is the system totally offline after any fault has been detected?I saw the earler question and you stated that if the buckle is the only problem then the airbag will still deploy. How certain are you about this?I ask the question as I was at the dealer last week to have the airbag light reset and the mechanic told me that if the airbag light is on then the airbag would NOT deploy under any circumstances. When I challenged him about it he kind of backtracked and said he was not sure.Does anyone have a definitive answer as to whether or not the airbag will deploy if the airbag light is on? If it will deploy which faults are not "critical"?
