The light is on because there is a problem with the air bag system. When the air bag light is on the system is not working and will not deploy in the event of an accident. Take it to AutoZone and get a free computer read out tom find out what the problem is.

Possibly the seat switch is defective or more likely the seat switch plug under the seat was unplugged when the key was turned on causing the air bag light to stay on.
