How Do I Reset My Airbag Light?

by Jul 31, 2022TPMS Bypass

The airbag light is a warning that a problem exists with one of your car’s safety features. If it comes on, you’ll want to get it checked out as soon as possible. The airbag light usually only goes off after the vehicle has been in an accident and an airbag has deployed. However, in some instances, the airbag light may illuminate on your instrument panel due to a malfunction. If your airbag light turns on due to a malfunction, you may try to turn it off by resetting your airbag light. In this article, we look at how you can reset your airbag light

Can I Reset My Airbag Light On My Own?

Yes, you can reset your airbag light on your own. This is a procedure that takes less than 10 minutes. To reset your airbag light, you’ll need to clear any stored error codes in your vehicle first so that the light goes away. The best way to do this is to have it done through an automatic reset.

We recommend trying an automatic airbag code diagnostic machine. These machines will scan your car’s electrical system for errors and help get rid of any lingering problems that might be causing issues with your airbags.

Reset Airbag Light – How Much Does It Cost

If your airbag light on your dashboard stays on, it likely means that the airbags in your car might not be deployed if you were to get into an accident. This likely means there’s something wrong with the airbag system. You’ll need to hire a professional to come in and examine the airbag system before you continue to drive the car. Apart from that, once it’s certain that there’s nothing wrong with the airbag system but the airbag light remains on, then it needs to be reset. This process can take several hours of time and usually costs a few hundred euros,

The cost of airbag light resetting varies greatly depending on the mechanic. Most mechanics charge around €200 to €300 for the service. However, for others, it can go as high as €600. Airbag light resetting services are available at most mechanic shops and dealerships, as well as through mobile mechanics who come to your home or office to perform the repair service.

Reset Airbag Light in a Few Steps

You can use a scanner to read the trouble codes from the airbag module in your vehicle.

The first step is locating the airbag module in your car. It is usually behind or under the steering wheel, on top of the passenger side headrest, or in one of these locations:

  • Underneath driver’s seat cushion
  • Behind driver’s seat
  • Inside trunk near battery compartment

After you’ve located your vehicle’s airbag module, power up the scanner and connect one end of a USB cable (if available) to an interface port on your computer. Connect the other end of the cable to an interface port on your airbag module. If you do not have any additional equipment for reading trouble codes from a vehicle’s airbag module, connect your diagnostic scanner directly to the vehicle.

If you do not have a DTC reader that can read trouble codes from an airbag module, connect your scanner directly to the airbag interface. These ports are typically located near the fuse box or under the dashboard. If you are unable to locate an airbag interface, refer to your owner’s manual for specific instructions on how to locate one in your vehicle

It is important to remember that the airbag light can be reset, but you should always check with your trusted auto shop first. This will ensure that all of your vehicle’s systems are working properly and make sure there isn’t any damage caused by an incorrect repair. If you are unsure about whether or not your car has been involved in an accident, have your vehicle checked by your trusted auto shop or car mechanic.

Another alternative for you is to completely bypass the airbag light. If you’re very diligent in maintaining the condition of your car, including checking all its components, then bypassing is a good option for you. Keep in mind though that it is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is in good running condition as your life and the life of your passengers are all your responsibility.
