OK, that is probably the main airbags (in the steering wheel and above the glove box in front of the passenger). The other airbag light is for the side airbags (fitted in the front seats, on the outside edge), and looks a bit like a person sitting strapped in the seat, with a balloon to one side.

Silly question, but what position is the disable switch at (the switch is down near the handbrake, in front of the height lever). If it is off (for when you are carrying a baby in the front seat) the airbag light stays on (according to the handbook).

Is it flashing? If it is, then the system is detecting a fault (again, according to the handbook. It will blink for 5 minutes and then stay lit). That would need a Lexia session to nail it down.

Try the connectors under the seat - there are ones to the pre-tensioners which are part of the main air bag circuit and can put the light on.

Make sure to disconnect the battery first, and wait at least 10 minutes before doing anything to the connectors. You don't want an airbag going off while you are working on them. If you have access to a Lexia then this would help pinpoint the fault.
