AirBag indicator is on but airbag is off

In my jeep the passenger side air bag indicator that is below the dash in front of the shifter is in the on poisition but when I turn the ignition a little light pops up saying "off".

Any idea what the problem is here? I dont think I'm actually missing the airbag. Maybe a lose wire or something along the way

You sure it's not an "airbag disable" switch? Turning that on would turn the airbag off.

Is the light staying on, or just coming on for a second and turning back off? All indicator lights are tested when you start the vehicle.

I'm not sure. Whether its in the on or off position it lights up "off" when I start it. I know they all are tested when starting it but that's the only time I've seen it.
Here's a picture

You have it in the off position, that's why the light comes on...

I had a feeling someone would say that when I posted that picture. It's in the off position because I was playing with it before taking the picture. Normally I leave it in the on position and it still reads "off" maybe there is no "on" light up and only tests the "off" light.

It lights up for bulb check then turns off. When it is in the off position, the off light remains lit. When the bag is on, nothing is lit.

I was wondering about that. Makes sense just wasn't sure if there was an on light or not
