BUICK LESABRE AIR BAG PROBLEM

2005 Buick Lesabre • 35,000 miles

The red air bag light stays on. Sometimes on start up it will flicker a few times before staying on. This started one week ago. Does this light indicate potential air bag service needs? How can I determine if it is just an electrical short vs an actual air bag issue? Due to safety issues is it advisable to have this checked by a dealer instead of an independent mechanic?

Have the computer scanned to see if there are trouble codes related to the air bag. NOTE: If the light is on, the system will not work.
