Airbag light came on. How to reset and possible problem?

The airbag light came on. Took it to a local shop but he didn't have the SRS / OBD tool to reset it. Will a durametric reset it? Think it might be a seatbelt switch? Don't want to reset it and have the warning go away then not have it deploy if needed. Any ideas before taking it to the stealership?

Thanks

purple8gold is on a distinguished road
Someone just replied to my post about this. Said he tried Durametric and it didn't work. On planet-9, someone suggested you don't leave the seats touching the back, leave about an inch gap. Mine's on after installing an SSK.

Durametric should reset the airbag warning light. But you should find out what tripped the light in the first place or it may come back after it is reset.

I tripped mine switching out the ebrake lever - something I unplugged and then turned the key on to move the seats out of the way. It took the dealer a few tries to get it to stay off.

If you disconnect any of the air bag connections, including the passenger bag warning light on the center console, and turn on the ignition while any of these are disconnected, an air bag fault light will come on and will have to be reset.
