Hi. The light activates when there is a problem with the airbag arming thus while the light is on it will NOT deloy. A quick fix might be removing the connectors to the battery, resulting in a computer system restart possibly eliminating a false activation of the light, If the problem persists take it to the dealer for a diagnosis "due to the complexity of the entire airbag system".. do not attempt any kind of service to this system on your own.

Air bag light comes on- cruise control does not work- horn does not work

Airgbag light is on. how do to reset it?

The short answer is no.
The air-bag warning light came on. Something has gone wrong and warrants a look to see what has happened. You would need to buy a special scan-tool to look at the live data, at stored codes, and after the repair is done, then reset the air-bag system.
Please don't tamper with the yellow connectors unless you know what to do. Static charge can set off an air-bag.

2002 dakota air bag warning light stays on continuosly. fuses ok. diconnected battery. no joy.

The clock spring in the steering is broken this is the device that connects the power to the air bags you will need to replace it then reset the brain using a diagnostic tool.

This is a typical problem the sensor may be bad this is not a true solution though but just disconnect it all together the flashing light could be irritating thats why many people do this.
