The air bag system is not tested as part of the MOT so the warning light being illuminated is not a failure item I'm afraid.

I suspect that the connections under the seats are loose,I'd start with making sure that they are making good contact and go from there.If that doesn't cure it,then a quick scan of the system with the appropriate equipment should put you in the right direction,any decent independant garage will be able to do this for you.

It's worth remembering that if the warning light is illuminated the airbag will not be deployed in the event of an accident.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
