: You're probably OK, the "Airbag" light means that the airbag might not deploy when it should (they design it to fail-safe for obvious reasons). So you should be OK driving to your dealer, just don't have an accident on the way over (good advice for any drive, I guess :-)! )

Most of the time when the airbag light is on its just a loose or defective pretensioner. (there is a service bulletin on this). The airbag still can deploy with the airbag light on, unless there is truly a defective deployment device (unlikely). I wouldn't worry about the airbag going off suddenly without an accident, and I wouldn't worry about it not going off when there is one :)

Just have the dealer check it
