What is an Airbag Reset Tool?

An airbag reset tool is a device or diagnostic tool used to reset or clear the airbag system’s fault codes and turn off the airbag warning light or SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) light in a car. When the airbag system detects an issue, such as a sensor malfunction or a deployed airbag, it triggers a fault code and illuminates the airbag warning light on the dashboard.

An airbag reset tool connects to the vehicle’s OBD-II (On-Board Diagnostic) port, which is usually located under the dashboard. It communicates with the car’s onboard computer system to retrieve and clear the fault codes related to the airbag system. By resetting the system, the tool allows the airbag warning light to be turned off after the underlying issue has been resolved.

Resetting the airbag system should only be done after identifying and fixing the cause of the fault codes. It is important to note that using an airbag reset tool does not fix any mechanical or electrical problems in the airbag system itself. It is merely a tool to reset the system and clear the fault codes after repairs or maintenance have been performed.

5). iProg clone

iprog is a universal programmer for airbag, mileage and eeprom.

Tool is cheap. Iprog plus is a good starter, you have to know how to use it, but over time it does everything, it’s always good, you have more tools just in case. Sometimes I calculate them, you have to do it yourself.

The clones are better cause you have newer software versions which are not available for the original version. 90% of dashboard and airbag calculations are good.
