    If your under 60k miles you might still be under warranty for that.

    A faulty Clock-spring is a common cause of lighting the Airbag indicator. Toyota calls a clockspring a "Spiral Cable". You can perform a simple continuity check on your existing clockspring to determine if it's faulty.

    A quick check is to test your Horn, Cruise Control & Steering-Wheel Audio Controls (also check back-lighting of buttons). These are the circuits (other than your airbag) that are carried by the clockspring. If any of these are not working, you likely need a new clockspring.

    Note: There are two versions of the clockspring. If you have steering-wheel audio controls, you'll have/need the more expensive one.

    84306-04080 $266.91
    84306-0E010 $292.00

    These part #'s get used on many different models of Toyotas. You can usually find a used one on eBay for around $100.

    Hope that helps...:)

    BTW, if you do end up replacing your clockspring, make sure to center it before installing it (5 turns CW, then 2.5 CCW).

    I was able to get mine replaced under warranty. IIRC, I think it falls under the SRS, which is covered for 60k.
