How do I turn off my airbag light in my 2005 Toyota Camry LE

Resolved Question:

How do I turn off my airbag light in my 2005 Toyota Camry LE 4cyl??

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. The light will not shut off if the system detects a problem. The most likely cause - due to the accident - is the occupant detection system needs to be recalibrated. Very common after an accident. One needs a scan tool with Techstream to do this. A trip to the dealer I am afraid.

The dealer would not touch the vehicle because I did not have the car professionally repaired, it was a liability issue. Unfortuantely I do not know anybody that works for a dealer either.

 

You are correct, I just figured out how to manually read the codes (I do not have a scan tool) and i'm getting 2 different codes. 31 & 73

 

B1000 31 Air Bag Sensor Assembly Center

B1100 31 Air Bag Sensor Assembly Center

 

B1900 73 Short In Left-hand PR Airbag - Circuit

B1901 73 Open In Left-hand P/T Airbag - Circuit

B1902 73 Short To Ground - In Left-hand PIT Airbag - Circuit

B1903 73 Short To Battery Power (12 volts) In Left-hand PR Airbag - Circuit

 

Any chance you could describe to me in detail how to go about fixing these codes? Note: Front airbags did not deploy. The front driver's side pretensioner did deploy locking the seat belt, but I replaced that using new parts from toyota to the tune of $250.00. Also, the front rad support sensors were replaced as well. Any help appreciated in deciphering what those codes mean and how to go about fixing them.

Expert:  Max Bernd replied 4 years ago.
Code 31 is the expensive one and might fix both codes. You need the airbag computer replaced (center sensor).

Are you able to possibly get a part number for me and tell me a list price for the module?

First thing tomorrow. Please post your vin

That will not be necessary, I was hoping that you had access to dealer list prices immediately. I will contact my dealer tomorrow with the VIN and get the part. I'm hoping this is all that I will need. I am accepting your response, I appreciate your time very much.
