Air-bag dash light

Since I have started using my car again the air-bag light stays illuminated for approx 30-40 seconds then goes out. It does this even after a prolonged run and then the car is re-started. Any ideas would be appreciated as to what a possible cause could be. It could be, or I should say would be a problem when the car is due it's mot later on.

Have you a RS steering wheel or the stock airbag wheel ?
If former, then its a faulty resistor, if latter- then :dont know:
 
Standard steering wheel, however I did come across comments on-line relating to a 'duff" battery causing this problem. I did replace the battery but that was two years ago and this issue has only occurred in the last 2-3 months.

I had this issue many years ago when I was in Kuwait. I took the car to OPC Kuwait and they fixed it by simply changing the bulb. It was as easy as that. It might be worth a try :dont know: and a cheap fix if it works.

Good luck :thumb:
