My '01 Bonneville has an airbag warning light on the dash, although I've not had any sort of collision. GM service says I need a new passenger side SIR module ($475 touch). I've been reading threads here and thought I had read that this module was located under the passenger seat beneath the carpet. I just got there and I don't see any sort of module, only a wiring harness contained in a large, flat plastic enclosure. I see a harness branching off into the center console. Could this be going to the module? I've read advertisements claiming they can "reboot" these modules for $49. Thought I might check it out, as it'* apparently no good to me as is. If I can't fix this inexpensively, is there a way to make the warning light disappear? If I understand correctly, I can leave things as they are, I simply won't have a functioning airbag on the passenger side.
Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.
