What does the INFL REST light mean? it flashes then stays on for a while

The INFL REST light means the "Inflatable Restraint" .Any time the light illuminates, a code is stored within the Central Control Module (CCM). That's your Airbag light. It stands for Inflationary Restraint. It should blink 5 times then go off. If it stays on there is a problem.Get the car scanned for codes before replacing any part.At its absolutely free to get car scanned to get codes. Keep updated for more queries.Thanks.

Light on instrument panel

That is an Airbag Warning Light. You will need to have the Dealership or a Qualified Mechanic Reset this Light. If you try and mess around with the Air Bag System The airbags could go off resulting in Major Repairs to the Dash and other Components.

Infl rest light flashing no fuel

Your Infl. Rest. Light is supposed to flash 7-9 times when you turn the ignition on or when you start the engine, It should then go off. If it is constantly flashing or comes on and stays on, You have a problem with your airbags and they will not function in a crash. It is unrelated to your fuel issue.
