It detects a problem with the system during it's self check. Whether it's the crash sensor, or the airbag, or some wiring... impossible to say. An appropriate computer (think dealership
) can identify the problem.
I have good luck paying mechanics with big computer systems a little cash to read an oddball code for me that autozone can't read. Any decent sized shop with one of those big red Bear computer analyzers should be able to do it...
