Default SRS Light

I just installed a new CD player in my car and it works great. I was followingi instructions from the Chiltons manual and there they suggested disarming the airbags just in case one of the sensors is hit.

Anyway, I am done with the installation and I reconnected the airbag plug but the SRS light won't turn off. I seriously don't feel like going to the dealer and paying $80 for labor.

Anyone have any ideas???

i never disarmed the airbags before while installed a deck.

maybe you can try to disconnect the neg off battery for a few mins. its just a suggestion.

Nope, I think I will take it to the dealer, I think the computer just needs to be reset or something, I tried disconnecting the battery but that didn't help!

Yeah I heard somwhere that once you disconnect the airbag, the light has to be reset by a dealer. This is what stopped my friend from getting TL seats in his Accord (they have side air bags built into the seat).
