Re: reset airbag light

They clear themselves when all is repaired. There is no reset. What's the flash code?

Re: reset airbag light

Not sure where it would be. If you didn't have to have it inspected, after 255 key on off cycles, it clears when no fault is present. The wire colors for the clear memory should be tan/red and black.

Re: reset airbag light

Then yours may have to have a shop reset it.
