My airbag light has come on, do I need to worry?

Yes. Usually if the light is on the unit will default to non-function. If you have side airbags often moving the seat can cause the light to come on, the cables are secured under the seat and moving the seat or putting items under the seat can disturb the wiring. Get it checked out on a Smart specific diagnostics machine by a professional.
