Airbag light

My airbag warning light has been on for a while and I need to sort it especially as my car is due for testing in a few weeks.
I read in here that 90% of the time its the clock spring thats guilty so should I go ahead and replace same or should I get it plugged up to some witchcraft and get a fault code? even so, when I replace the clock spring I'll still need to get the airbag light reset, right? also, do I need a device specific to abs warnings and codes etc to do all this or can it be done with your average fault code reader?
any help appreciated!

Is your car a 9-3?

If so...

Look up Spurious DTC's on townsend imports Bulletin system.

Most likely will need a Saab Tech-II to reset it.

You also can trip and Airbag light if you pull the fuse or have the fuse blow in the airbag circuit while the car is running or key turned, ask me how I know

9-3's are nortorious for the driver seat side air-bag faults... they are a b*tch to change sometimes and by no means a cheap repair (unless getting used parts).
