Anyone in the SJ, CA area have an airbag tool?

The airbag light on my '95 e36 318IS is on. I'm pretty sure this happened when we took apart the steering column to replace the starter. I want to check the codes and reset the light, but I don't have the SRS tool and I called a repair shop but they want a min $130 trouble-shooting fee, which is ridiculous. I don't want to buy the tool myself because I am planning to sell the car. So if anyone in the San Jose CA area has the tool and is willing to share, please send me an email. Thanks! cl_peterson@yahoo.com

check your connections below your seat, alot of times when the airbag light goes on it has to do with a loose connection that was knocked when moving the seat or something...
