Smart 451 Airbag Light On

Hi guys, I've got a 2011 Smart 451 model. The airbag warning light is on, I was wondering if anyone can give advice on a DIY clean of the connections before I pay a lotta $ to the dealership to get it fixed?

Hate to say it but you need either a high end scanner, or the dealer STARR computer to reset the light. they can tell you what triggeredit. Only a guess but check the connectors under the seats, if they are disconnected and the car is started, the light comes on.

Icarsoft makes a scanner for mb and smart for about $150 it can scan your abs engine airbags it’s a must if you own a smart and live far from the dealer. Your first repair will pay for it
