I have a 1993 Toyota Camry with 367,000 plus miles and I just replaced the transmission. The air bag light came on after driving to the station to fill up. After shutting down the engine to fill up and upon restarting the engine, the air bag indicating light came on. The air bag light is on continuously at this time. I have not touched the system (sensors, steering wheel unit) other than disconnecting the battery. How do I reset the air bag system so that the indicating light is off and the air bag system is functional without taking to the dealership? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Get car scanned with body scanner, it will give you an SRS error.

If problem occured just after trannny change, most likely a SRS sensor was damaged or wiring to it.

First of all, thank you for getting back to me. I followed the same procedure to read retrieve the trouble codes using the "Questions" response to Street Rat. Refer to "1992 Toyota Camry 92 Air Bag Lamp" response. Using the procedure, I could not get the Air Bag indication light to flash so as to provide the number of flashes to the corresponding code. Upon jumpering "Tc" to "E1" and placing the ignition switch to ACC/On, the Air Bag indication light would flash only once and stay on continuously (solid).
As to your response of ". Get car scanned with body scanner", I am not sure how and with what tool? Sorry for not being up to current technology or terminology. Do I need to take this to the Toyota dealership to determine what the SRS error(s) are causing the issue and the needed repair? Thanks again.

SInce this is pre-1996 it is an OBDI computer. You should have Toyota or trusted garage read codes.

Air Bags are not something that would be considered "DIY". If they were to deploy they can kill you.
