air bag warning light

The direction indicator needed replacement due old age. In order to change it I had to disconnect the steering wheel and the air bag unit. After installing a new one and connecting the air bag and steering wheel again which all functioned there was a error; the air bag warning light stays on.
Any suggestions on what went wrong?

Yours sincerely,

You should have disconnected the battery before starting the turn signal project. You'll have to have SRS system fault reset by a shop or the dealer. Sorry!

There is an air bag (SRS) code reader and reset tool sold by Peake Research that you can use to read the code and turn off the dashboard warning light. I think this will work for you but you should check with Peake on this. Otherwise you will likely pay a garage almost as much to reset the light as the code reader costs.

before starting the turn signal project I disconnected the battery. I solved the problem with iCarsoft scanner i910.
Thank you very much for your answers.
