Airbag fault with no warning light?

I was scanning through the fault code sections in my Durametric the other day and came across this. Yet I have no dash warning light (the light itself does work). Anyone have an explanation?

That looks like it's saying the airbag warning light doesn't work. I have gotten that error before on the durametric. Then again the PO removed the airbag warning light.

The dash light works. It comes on momentarily when starting the car.

How does the fault operating hours compare with the current operating hours data?

They don't match, the airbag fault hasn't happened yet according to the DME clock......and won't happen for another 10 operating days yet.

Sorry, I don't follow. Are you saying there is a preset airbag error that shows up at some specific time or some sort of error in the car's electronic brain?
