i wouldn't worry about it too much, it will be safe. if the air bag light is on that means the air bags are disabled due to a fault. they wont go off unexpectedly. in pure interest does the horn still work?

Yeah my airbag warning light comes on too, went off for 2 weeks now its back.
Local mechanic didn't recognise the code, so gotta take it to ford now, never a good sign.

non fixable my friend, unless itsjust a blown fuse, will need to be put on WDS (ford diagnostic tool) or where ever you go to be diagnosed properly. i think its law that someone certified does it due to the explosives used in the airbag system? am i right? anyone?
