I was vacuuming under the seats last week and must've rubbed a connector wrong cause my airbag light is on.
Is there a way to reset it without an mbstar or whatever it's called?
If not what is the absolute cheapest scanner that will reset it?

Do not tell me to go to a dealership or a mechanic. I don't trust anyone with my cars. Hell I don't even trust a car wash. I'd much rather take the dash apart, pull the bulb and delete all the airbags.

No. Reconnecting the plug WILL NOT reset the light. I-carsoft has a small hand-lheld device that will do it. If I remember correctly, mine cost a little over a hundred dollars. of course it will not correct a bona-fide problem, but if the problem (bad sensor, broken wire, loose plug ect) is replaced, restored ect. it will reset the light. Also, be aware that as long as that light is on your airbags will not work! Other than that, the only way to reset the light is a trip to the dealer, or being lucky enough to have a good friend with a STAR computer. Ordinary code readers are no help.

Well that's disappointing.
