I have a problem with the airbag system, which is giving ten faults. This seem a large number of things to go wrong at the same time! The fault codes are below. The mechanic try to clear the codes, but didn't work. Is there away to preform a hard re~boot? or can you help with any ideas? i understand the module is costly, and hard to get to!!

If the Airbag light is on then unless the battery was disconnected you have a fault in the Airbag system and the control module turned on the warning light. There is no reset for a fault, you must read the code with a scan tool and repair the problem and then the light will go out.

The recommendation is to get a new one & have it reprogrammed. ... Is the airbag control module a normal wear item or should I expect that it would last the .... easily shipped, and you have the scanner that can reset any faults it may come with. ... Can'tyou simply reset and see what comes back, then fix it?
Yes!!! You can replace it yourself.(Dont let others fool you into paying extra or telling you otherwise.)
-This is for pontiac grand ams 1999-2005 only.
-There are no frontal airbag impact sensors nor are there belt tensioners.
-The SRS system consists of only the (driver airbag) ,(passanger airbag),and the (airbag control module) in 1999-2005 grand ams.
If you crash/wrecked and airbags deployed you will need.
-Driver and Passanger airbags
-Airbag control module
You can buy cheap airbags from a local junkyard any year from 1999-2005 will fit.
You can also find an airbag control module for cheap at your local junk yard BUT YOU MUST FIND ONE WITH THE SAME (PART NO.) AND (SERV NO.) AS THE ONE YOUR REPLACING.The (part no.) and (serv no.) should be at top left of airbag control module.However it does (Not) have to match numbers under barcode or the numbers at the far bottom right of airbag control module.
After you get both airbags and airbag module
-Disconnect car Battery
-Replace airbag module (under passanger seat)
-Double check all connections and connect battery.
Congradulations!Your airbags should be back online.
Notes: Two torx 35 head screws hold the driver airbag, access is through two holes behind steering column.
To remove passanger airbag you have to remove glovebox it uses (7mm)screws.After you remove you will see a pair of (10mm)screws holding airbag.
To remove airbag control module First remove passanger seat 2(15mm).Then after removing you will notice a raises area kinda like a vertical bump.Take a razor blade to your carpet and cut it to explose the module underneath.
The airbag module is held by three screws depending on the year of your car it varies.Most likely 3 (10mm).
This vehicle will run a diagnostic test every time the key is turned on. If the light is on, there is likely still a fault. You should have someone check for trouble codes in the airbag module. It is my experience that, once an airbag is deployed, there is an "arming" switch (usually the control module itself) that also needs to be replaced.
The light for the Airbag/SRS system is on because the system control module has sensed a fault and turned off the airbag SRS system. What you must do now is have a scan done of the airbag module to see what fault codes show up in the airbag modules memory.
The airbag light means that a problem with the airbag has been detected and that there is an error code stored in the airbag control module. The code will tell you what is wrong with the airbag. The code can be read at the nearest Lexus dealer, you will be charged a fee of $80.
Sometimes the light can be reset by disconnecting battery for ten minutes. Disconnecting battery will also delete the error codes stored. If the light comes back when you connect back the battery, that means that the problem is still there, and that the airbag control module detected the problem immediately.
Airbag lights are a bit more involved of a process. It could be as simple as getting your airbag control module reset (usually about $100-150) or it could be the result of a different problem. Possible causes for an airbag light are:
1) crash data stored in the airbag control module, requiring reset
2) bad clockspring - this sends data to the airbag inflator module
3) other fault in the SRS system.
The only way to be sure what the problem may be is to get the system read for code and go from there. The airbag light will stay on regardless of a manual reset by removing the battery cable because the codes are stored in a different memory than standard trouble codes. Since the car checks the airbag system completely once you start, that is why the light won't go off until the data is erased from the airbag system control module. Once you find out what the cause is, getting the necessary parts and installing them would be simple enough.
Do not just reset the system, have it scanned for possible codes first. Having an airbag randomly inflate while driving could prove to be problematic.
