Default HELP!! Airbag sensor

For some strange reason my airbag sensor came on out of the blue and my daughter takes her drivers test Monday. How do I get it to go off so she can take the test. All codes are blank and have been cleared. No fault code given for the srs system.

You reset with a reset tool and still lights up?

Could be the passenger seat mat or a switch in one of the seat belts.

I have read and heard that these older model TI have an issue with the seat belt switches

I will be curious what fault codes you read out.

This PDF
covers the seat belt buckle issues on earlier production U.S. cars.

So the reader showed a driver side seatbelt issue. But I did clear it and it has not come back yet. Of course I will keep my eye on it though.
