Which Tool to use to rest SRS Airbag light

Post by Fosgate » Mon Aug 29, 2016 6:04 am

Another question I was hoping fellow enthusiasts would be able to help me with.
So we needed to replace the ignition barrel on our S40T Volvo, and while doing that we have disconnected all the wires going to the steering column ...
After replacing the lock and connected all the plugs back where they came from the SRS airbag light is now permanently on...

So before I go spending hundreds of dollars getting one of those tools from ebay I wanted to ask you which one would actually work in resetting the SRS light?

I found this on ebay

And also this

Which one would you recommend? Having a tool which can also give me the error codes and have few other functions would be a bonus.

Thanks again.

Yes, the Dice is the one to get- there is a whole section devoted to VIDA and DICE here on our website. Otherwise, the Draper Tool is suppose to reset airbags too but most likely on older S40's - prior to '99.
