Hi I wonder if anyone knows if the airbag light can be reset? I have an 03 1.2 punto which i have just bought with the light on? Can this be done  at home or will i need to visit a dealer?

Cheers Sean

sean,,,this is not something really for a diy'er or anyone without the correct eqt or knowledge to play about with really,,lets not forget you are dealing with what is basically exposives,,the only safe thing to try i would say is to try leaving battery disconnected for 5mins(observing any radio codes etc,,,)

but ideally take it to fiat or independant with suitable eqt

Check the connectors under the seats, they can be temperamental, especially if you have two drivers moving the seats to and fro.

Sean,

Just to make you aware of the situation here. Unlike the service interval light which can be reset. If you have a major system malfunction light illuminated (such as airbag), these can't be reset until the fault is found and cured.

You will need to have a code read and then work on what that suggests.
