The system needs to be repaired then it will reset itself. It's most likely the impact sensors behind the front bumper. They're prone to get moisture inside of them and malfunction. Note: the airbags will NOT deploy, even in a collision, until the system is repaired. HTH. -Jim

it might be because the censor in the seat is broken, and the system cant determine whether a person is seated or not. If so, a quick fix is an airbag simulator, causing the system to think that a person is always seated. In case of a collision, the airbag will go off no matter if a person is seated or not. It is easy and cheap to fix it in this way.
