Exclamation Airbag/seatbelt chime disable

hello im new to this site and i just bought a 2005 suzuki reno 5spd its a fun little car and i love it already but when i bought it i noticed the airbag light was on and i asked the previous owner and he said that he disabled the seat belt chime by turning the key a certain amount of times and pressing the odo reset button in a certain sequence but disabling the chime also disables the airbags and as much as i trust my driving skills id still like to have functioning air bags haha so my question is to you guys have you ever heard of/know of that turn key sequence to get my airbags turned back on?!?

thanks guys and your site rules!

Man, that really burns me up when people lie just to sell something! I like to think karma will catch up with them, and that they'll remember why.

The problem with these cars' airbag system is very common indeed, as chokee13
stated.

The problem usually lies with the airbag wiring connectors located under the front seats.
The contacts to wiggle loose over time, with the front/back adjustment of the seats or items/feet manipulating the plugs from passengers in the back seat. The problem is aggravated by the factory's use of zip ties on the cable, not allowing sufficient slack for normal movement.

This is really just a bad design issue, and it requires re-programming at the stealership to correct. The really bad news is that the airbags will not function at all until the "error code" is cleared.

The airbag system treats ANY wiring error as a critical error and disables the system. If you think about it another way, it is, in fact, a safety precaution. You wouldn't want a failing sensor to deploy the airbags at any random event, like say, hitting a pothole. That would really suck.

So, long story short, if you want the airbags to work, you're gonna have to take it in and have it checked every time that stupid light constantly stares back at you.

what if i were to unhook the battery and see if that resets the code/error? do you think that would have any gain?

unhooking the battery wont work. you need to either go to the dealer or a mechanic who has Suzuki software. theres no other way to turn off the light
