The thing is that, I don't want to go again to dealership just to reset all the codes to see if the new battery solved the AirBag issue. This is a supplement to procedure found in Service Information. And to determine that, each accident must be examined for other causes of grave injury. Then take the Philips screwdriver and remove the 2 yellow reflectors.
It would sometimes come on for a few minutes, then go away. You will need a higher end scan tool to pull codes from the airbag module. Would you like to answer one of these instead? Also, The sensing and diagnostic module has a reserve energy supply for the purpose of deployment that can last up to a minute after disconnecting vehicle power. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon.
