Reset Lexus Airbag Light

Is your Lexus airbag light on? Learn how to read what is causing the airbag light to illuminate and how to reset it using an OBD-II Scanner.


This procedure should only be completed after reading the airbag codes and fixing the underlying problem.

What you will need


Generic code readers can not access the airbag module and will show no fault codes related to the airbag system. The scanner must be able to diagnose the Toyota airbag system (SRS).


  1. Connect your OBD-II diagnostic tool to the diagnostic port located under the dashboard, driver’s side.2004-Lexus-ES-330 OBDII port 2013-Lexus-GS-350 diagnostic port2007-Lexus-IS-250 OBDII port2007-Lexus-IS-250 OBD II port

  • This procedure can be used to turn off the Lexus airbag light. Fault codes should only be cleared after the system has been repaired. Do not clear Lexus airbag codes if the fault code status is CURRENT or PRESENT. See further instructions below.
  • Clearing Lexus airbag codes without addressing the issue is not recommended. When the Lexus airbag light is reset without fixing the underlying problem, the airbag light will come back on when you restart the car.
