Here's a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system.

This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights. See if your car is listed here.

On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident.

The flashing light on your car is telling the answer you need. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.

Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) and some require a scan tool.

Check out these websites also for more info on airbag systems and the light.

Also, you may want to check out this site for information on researching your own vehicle for factory recalls!!!

Under Passenger front seat. Must replace, no reset.(DERM unit)

Yes however sometimes they put it under the center middle console. And yes you can reset it. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on replacing. I googled a company called and they reset my original Airbag / SRS Computer Module for $55 and shipped it back to me for free. It worked and the my SRS system is effective.

Does replacing the steering column fixthe airbag?

No, the airbag system, and the steering system are completely different. The airbag, in the centre of the steering wheel (i assume) can be replaced. Lets say for example, your vehicle has a crash, and the airbag is deployed, you will need to replace it, and then remove any fault codes from the airbag module (or ECU). If the airbag light is illuminated, but the airbag hasn't deployed, this indicates a general fault (which shouldnt be ignored) Personally id have this investigated by a trained technician, as an exploding airbag isn't something i'd like to be standing next to! SRS systems are complex and rely on a control module, its more electric than it is mechanical, replacing a steering column would just simply; replace the steering column...

How do you reset the airbag light on Chevrolet Cavalier 2000 after replacing the airbags and the control module?

you have to have a scan tool. i.e.snap-on scanner If the light does not go out by itself, and it stays on constantly then there is still a current problem with the system. The thing is that a code is present in the body computer, and needs resetting. This can only be done with a Scantool that is able to go into the body computer. The body computer is not letting power go to the SRS computer.

Is it expensive to reset airbag light on Hyundai?

if your airbag light is on it tells that something is wrong with the module, sensors, or clock order to find out what is the problem you would have to pay for the diagnostic, usually they charge about 70$. After they replaced they have to reset the airbag light. I would've buy one of those airbag reset tools online for about 50-100$ and do it myself saving hundreds.
