    Take it back, it won't pass an mot and its going to cost an arm and leg to get sorted.

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Where did you buy it from?

    did you carry out an inspection prior to purchase?

    i would recommend getting aa/rac to carry out a full vehicle inspection.

    because if something like airbag light is taped got to ask what else have they hidden.

    Are they illuminated or just covered? It is a bit naughty that they are taped over... did you buy it with a full MOT etc?

    Although the cause could be as simple as something like a loose plug or connector, as has been said it's not your problem to sort it out. Unless you were 'traded' the vehicle and this was openly pointed out to you, you have been traded the a potentially dangerous vehicle under false pretenses.

    As has been mentioned, if the 'safety systems' warning light doesn't illuminate and then go out at startup that's an MoT fail, but more importantly if the previous owner went to the extent of hiding the illuminated lamp(s) god knows what other faults are hidden, waiting to do you harm.
