Step 1 – Determine Issue
You may find that all that you need to do is replace the airbags in your vehicle. The owner’s manual will tell you where all of the airbags in your car are located and will also tell you how to get to them. Once you have replaced the airbags check to see if the airbag module light is still flashing. If it is, then the module will have to be reset.
Step 2 – Remove Module
The module itself will need to be removed from the vehicle. The module is usually below one of the two front seats of your vehicle. Refer to the owner’s manual for exact locations.
Step 3 – Send Off
The module will need to be sent off so that it can be reprogrammed. This process will usually take up to ten business days depending on where it is sent.
