[Sticky] Airbags 101: When You Need an Airbag Module Reset
The dealership will not be able to clear hard code due to hardware issues and will offer to sell you a new replacement airbag module that usually costs around $180 to $600 depending on the vehicle.
At MyAirbags, we reset ALL fault codes. After you receive the module back from us you will not have to take it to the dealership for any additional programming. All airbag control modules can be reset and reprogrammed, with the exception of flood, fire or hardware damage.
After even a small accident, codes will be stored in the module.

Accessing the Vehicle’s Airbag Control Module
To ensure your safety when removing and installing your airbag module, MyAirbags provides these simple tips:
Removing the Airbag Module
- Disconnect the positive lead on the battery and wait three minutes.
- Locate the SRS computer module, which is often located directly below the center console between the front two seats. In GM vehicles, the SRS computer module is typically found under either the driver or passenger seat, while in other vehicles it may be found near the floor in the center of the dash.
Installing the Airbag Module
- Ensure proper connections of all SRS components, including clock springs, airbags, impact sensors and seat belts.
- Disconnect the battery cables, and carefully insert the reset airbag control module.
- Connect the airbag control module wiring plugs. Make sure the module is bolted down. If not bolted down the airbags and seat belts may deploy
- Re-connect the battery after securing the airbag module.
