Codes for the airbag warning light need to be pulled using the airbag testing tool by your dealer I'm afraid, there is no other way to check or reset them as far as I'm aware (they survive battery disconnects and other such tricks). The usual cause of SRS faults are the sliprings on the steering column that transfer airbag, horn and other such signals from the fixed column to the steering wheel. A momentary break in continuity is enough to trigger the warning. I don't think replacing the slip rings requires major wallet surgery but as the airbag contains a small explosive device it is best to let the experts do it (although if you Google you will find instructions on how to do it - have a look on for example). As this is a safety feature on your car it is best to get it sorted sooner rather than later. Cheers, Andy -- Andrew Sinclair
