Replacement Airbags For your Vehicle

The Dealer wants 100 bucks and I just spent a ton of money at the junlk yard on replacement parts.. What can I do?

I was told that I have to enter dianostic mode and tried the series of steps but I cannot get it to enter the mode. Please help.
Micheal I am updating because before I read your post the air bag went off and I bit my tongue off… Haha just kidding.

Actually I am updating cause what I did to get it to go out just blows me away. I turned the ignition to on and then pressed the door jam light switch 5 times. The flashing light starts flashing weird and then turns out. Then I turned it on and it is gone. No joke.

Have you ever heard of this?…

disconnect the battery first, and if you unplugged the ABS wire and you dont wait at least 5 minutes after disconnecting the battery, you risk the possiblity of the air bag going off. I have seen a mechanic bite off his tongue, when he removed the airbag to do a tiltwheel repair, and plug in the airbag and it went off.
you cannot reset that light without a scan tool. Auto zone can reset the light for free after you do as I explained to reconnect the wire
good luck

    On most every vehicle,the air bag light will go out once the fault is fixed without needing to do any thing else.There is probably still something disconnected.

    Here’s a site that will tell you how to reset it.
    Check out this website.

    The purpose of this website and company is to help people diagnose and repair airbag problems themselves without taking them to the dealer (if possible). It offers all the photos and data you need to understand your airbag system, read the codes and reset the light. It’s a pay site, but it certainly is worth the money ($14.95 for 1 day full access)
    There’s a place to check if your car is listed on the home page

    This is quite a complete website with pictures, descriptions and factory fault code charts as well as a working demo that shows just how easy these repairs can be. Although it does not give step by step instructions, there is enough information in the pictures and the "how-to" pages that most people can do it themselves.
    Lots of insurance companies and body shops use this site for the information they need to repair your car.
    Lastly, there’s a page in this site that tells you which cars need a scan tool and which ones can be done without one
