What should I do about this light?

This light exuded to come on today. It came on about two years ago then turned off about a week or so later. I'm wondering if it will do the same again this time. I know it says to service that system but how do you do that for airbags?

Underneath your seats is a plug. Find it, unplug it, MAYBE clean the prongs off with a little bit of rubbing alcohol, and then plug them back in and it will go away.

It would a few times then get solid. And I didn't do anything to it and now it's staying off.

The plug under my seat was the culprit when that happened

But yeah check the plugs.. Typically its something simple. Also make sure your horn and cruise control works cause it could be a clockspring.

Also when the airbag light is on it disables your airbag till it goes out
