Remove pass. seat- now, error won't clear?

I had to remove the front passenger seat to access the fuse for the sec. air pump. This triggered a red light to appear on the dash on the far right indicating that when I removed the wire to the linear position transducer the computer no longer knew where the seat was position (forward or back) so it lighted the red light. After putting the seat back and reconnecting everything, the red light will not go out. I have a Peake, but since it's not a SES type error, I'm not sure how to clear it. Any suggestions?

Good news - Peake makes a second reader called an SES Reset Tool. Wanna bet what it does?

Otherwise, it is my understanding that the light should go off after the system has detected that the error is gone - are you sure you fixed it?

Light Stays On

I just did a bit more digging in my IBus/KBus docs. I thought the SRS modules communicated on them.

They don't. And apparently the light doesn't go off. Sorry Bill - you need an SRS reset tool or a trip to the dealer.

There is decent info on the Peake website and a couple others, but they all say the same thing: even temporarily disconnecting an SRS module (seat, etc) while the vehicle battery is still connected will cause a light to come on and stay on...
