I would be willing to bet that the guy who was working on it shut your safety switch off, either intensionally or accidentally. It's usually a little toggle switch on the dash, by your left knee, but it could be under the hood. Contact the shop that worked on your truck, and ask if they shut it off. If it's not that, then it could also be the battery in your remote. However...I would think that to be quite a coincidence.

    Did you call the guy who was working on it? If he didn't shut the switch off, i wonder if he bumped or disconnected something under the hood. You shouldn't have to reset anything. I would take it back to the guy, and ask him to look.

If there is a current failure in the airbag system, you can't reset it. The light will stay on for as long as the fault exists. You can plug GM's Tech 2 scan tool in, clear the code, and the light will turn right back on if the fault is still present in the airbag system. The only way to turn the light off (besides putting black tape over it) is to read the diagnostic code, diagnose the problem, and fix it.

1997 gmc jimmy started not shifting into low or overdrive and you can unplug battery for about 20 minutes and then it works okay for a short time. what could cause this problem?

The best thing to do is scan the computer for codes, if its not shifting correctly then the check engine light should be on, autozone parts store will scan it for free, these codes will help in finding the problem, it may be a bad speed sensor or something like that, start with the scan first.
