Durametric assistance in CT area?

Anyone with a Durametric in the CT area that can help me with my airbag light?
I started the car up with the passenger seat removed when I did my alternator.

Thanks!

I stand corrected... but that's a dealer visit.

The $98 DiagLink is the exact same unit as the $175 MD802, except that no vehicles are on it when you buy it. It comes with one free vehicle make download, additional makes are $10 each.

Thanks for the replies. If I don't find someone to help me out for a couple beers I will look into the DiagLink.

I have a VAGCOM, that probably can't do it, right?

VW and Porsche use different diagnostic protocols, the VAGCOM will probably not do it.

If you keep an eye out on Autel's eBay page, they mark a listing down every 2-3 weeks. I bought mine for $73.50 with free shipping while it was marked 25% off.

Wiser minds prevail... and I learn something new.

Thanks!
