How do I reset the air bags?

If you have been in an accident that deployed the air bags, then you’ll need to replaced and the system checked for integrity.

Resetting the air bags loads them back into place, and resets the system, so that they’ll function correctly in the event of another accident. The only way to reset your air bags is to take your car to a dealership.
