Hello. A professional scan tool is required to clear the light. After reading and clearing the light, the technician can determine if it will return. Unfortunately, the light will not reset by itself. I have a feeling that the problem has to do with the computer system and the passenger swat occupant sensor that have failed to communicate properly and it has caused the warning light to appear. I recommend you have a technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the Air Bag Light on your vehicle and suggest an appropriate repair.
