The light you are refering to is the air bag light. There are several sensors that can cause the light to turn on. To locate the source of the problem, you need to have the computer scanned by a mechanic. Without having it scanned, it becomes a guessing game and I don't want you to throw money into parts that don't need replaced.
What I recommend is to have it scanned by a mechanic. By scanning the computer, the mechanic should know where the problem is and be able to tell you. At that point, you can have him / her replace it or do it yourself if you feel confident. I will be here to help you if you need it. My biggest concern would be if you are unexperienced. Doing the wrong things can cause the airbag to deploy without warning.
Let me know what you decide. Also, if the light is lit, the airbag will not work in an accident.
