Default Airbag module question

Just purchased a 2012 Insight to replace my older civic hybrid. I need to have the air bag module reset. Can anyone tell me where it's located so I can remove to send off? Also if I remove with that make the car undriveable?
Thanks in advance.

Have the airbag recalls been done? See a Honda dealer. Put your location in your profile.

There are 0 recalls for this vehicle according to the information I found online when I ran the VIN. I'll try to update my location. I'm in Dayton, Ohio.

what do you mean by reset air bag module?
Light is on for no reason or due to accident?
Better to see a dealer, since sensors in the air bag module are complicated.

Having a vehicle as complicated as Insight and never seeing a Honda dealer is unrealistic. How many miles on this Insight?

As you have a 2012 you may need to see Honda about TSB 15-015 and recently TSB 16-101 involving faulty piston rings causing high oil consumption and ultimately engine failure anyway.
Why not let them sort both issues out while you drive their free loaner car?
