Question about 1999 Acura TL
A shop has to scan the car for codes to find out which airbag is tripping the light, and from there the diagnosis can be made. It could be a loose wire, or a damaged connector, or a dead airbag control module. If your car has side bags mounted in the seats, it's possible that it has the same problem that my Audi has - on my car, moving the seat too far back can strain the under-seat connector just enough to trip the airbag light, which then has to be reset with a computer scan tool. What I did in my car was to identify the offending bag (the driver's seat in my case) and then I zip-tied the connector tightly to hold it together, and turned off the light, and the problem has yet to come back. If you do investigate this on your own, all airbag connectors (by law) are yellow - if you find a yellow connector, it's an airbag - no other connectors are yellow. Before touching it, touch the frame of the car for a few seconds to discharge any static electricity in your body - you don't want to run even the slightest risk of blowing the airbag accidentally.

You can't reset it, the light will clear/ turn off when the problem with air bag system is repaired, right now the system has been disabled by the control module, SRS stands for supplemental restraint system, or air bags for short.

The SRS system involves explosive devices, for some reason they seem to
have been set off in your case. Maybe I minor collision or a crash
sensor malfunction caused it.
Only qualified professionals may work with these systems, diagnosing and replacing components. This is one of the things that are definitely off limits for DIY-ers.
