Question: at the shop

the people in the dealership told me that the alternator was new, and that the computer stored information saying something was bad...I'm not to sure on this. So they cleared all of the codes. But now the air bag light keeps coming on. Thanks for all the help i hope it gets fixed and I will try the things recommended if the problem still happens after the dealership looks at it.
