CHEVY AIRBAG LIGHT

2003 Chevrolet Silverado

Electrical problem
2003 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles

My brother has a 03 Chevy 4X4 truck and his airbag light came on and will not go out. Reading on other sites said to try and move the seat and the light will go out. Other sites people have changed censers, fixed temporally but came back on. There are alot of people with the same problem, somebody out there must know the solution. Thanks
