airbag light.......

greeting to all and i hope the festive period was enjoyed by all. but over this my ignition barrel had to be replaced. job done. but now my airbag light is constantly on, it wasn't before.
i've tried various combinations of fitting it with the battery disconnected but no luck. does anyone know how to reset these without having to go to the stealership? thanks everyone.

Im afraid the only way is diagnostics, may be worth buying carsoft 6.5, but you will need a laptop, as this does the bizz, Ive used it for years on my car.

The only other way to avoid the stealership is to get hands on one of these.....an SRS Reset tool... I bought one & it paid for itself after my 1st use, I ended up using it 3 more times on my brother's car & then some friends. I would guess that maybe you did not disconnect your negative battery cable before you disassembled your steering column.....for if you unplug any airbag component with the battery connected it will trip a code....
