    Any independent shop that has a good scanner can do this, but if your air bag light is on, then that means that you have fault code in your air bag system, so re-setting the light may not do anything, it may come right back on until the air bag system issue is addressed. While the air bag light is on, you have NO AIR BAG PROTECTION, so be careful.

    The air bag light on means there's a fault in the air bag Safety Restraint System and they will not deploy in an accident. Air bags are a serious safety item and should not repaired by a trained automotive technician. They have the equipment and diagnostic tools to work on them safely.
