You will not be able to "RESET" the Air Bag Light until you scan the Vehicle for Trouble Codes in the Restraint System
Most Generic Scan Tools cannot do this
It is best to have a Body Shop or GM Dealer Scan for Trouble Codes, then once the problem is fixed, the Air Bag Light can be RESET
Some Shops will RESET it, but the Light will come back on, if the problem that triggered it is not fixed

The light went off by itself ...thank you ....
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 8 months ago.

great.........then the issue has cured itself......many times the seat switch can stick setting the light, which will store a code in the Computer, to be retrieved via Scan Tool.

IF the issue returns, you need to have it checked
