Although the cost for replacement varies by model and manufacturer, a complete airbag replacement costs from $1,000 to $1,500 as of 2015. Airbag resetting, which involves reinstalling the same airbag, costs around $1,000.
For driver’s side airbags, it is often less expensive to purchase a new steering wheel system that comes with an airbag. This option may cost several hundred dollars less than resetting the airbag or replacing it outright.
To reset the airbag light on a vehicle, the cost is around $600. This covers the cost of a professional inspection of the airbag system to determine why the light is on and if any fix required.
