Ok

Hello,

As you have found out, the SIR, or Supplemental Inflatable Restraint system, will not clear any service codes simply by disconnecting the battery.

The only way to reset the light is to use a diagnostic scan tool that is capable or interacting with the SIR system. If you know anybody with a Tech 2 scan tool (GM's diagnostic tool), they should have no problem hooking up and resetting, assuming the problem has been repaired.

If you have not had the cause of the light diagnosed yet, then you will need to retrieve the code from the SIR module, and repair whatever fault is causing the light to come on.

Please let me know if you require further assistance in this matter.
