Removed the passenger seat of my 06_EX for some steam cleaning...don't ask. When I reattached it (attaching electrical connections) the airbag light stays on. Is there a way to reset it?

Yes, it can be reset. You learned the hard way that the battery and under-seat connections must be disconnected and reconnected in the proper sequence. As soon as the computer powers up and sees that something is amiss in the seat belt circuit, it sets the light (which won't ever reset by itself). The key is to keep the computer asleep the whole time the under-seat connector is undone.

Disconnect seat harness

This applies to the SRS (air bag) wiring as well.
