You will have to take this to a dealer and have the airbag codes read. There's no way to turn it off without having the codes checked, since any attempt to reset it will simply result in it coming back on as soon as the car is restarted. What this essentially means is that your airbags may not deploy in the event of a crash.


After taking it to the dealer 10 times and them telling me I needed to spend 3000.00 on both front seats with only 15000 miles on it I took it into my own hands. I had them reset it again. Then I took it straight home and disconnected the battery and turn on the head lights and turned the ignition key to the start position for 15 seconds. Then I pulled both front seats and cut out the yellow plugs and hard wired the wired back together before hooking the battery back up. I had them test it 3 times now and they say everything is working great. There mistake is every time I took it in I asked them what they did to fix it and they told me they worked with the jacks below the front seats. Fixed it myself because they said they couldn't.
