Default SES light went on

I have a 97 Accord Wagon, I noticed the SES light is on, my wife said she
took it to the mechanic and he said...
its to do with the air bag..and that is a dealer thing which can be very
expensive....
Does this sound true or BS....

Thanks

What did the owner's manual say? I think it would be the S R S light.

Use this procedure to clear and/or read the dtc.

To Clear the SRS DTC:

NOTE:
During this memory erase procedure you have a 4 second window to
complete the connection
and disconnection of the the two memory erase wires. So be quick. A very
small paper clip bent
into a "U" shape should work fine but don't force it into the wire terminals.

On the left side of the car under the dash board you will find a yellow
two pin connector. This
is the Memory Erase Signal connector. There will be two gray or green wires
in this connector. To
erase the SRS Memory do the following:

Carefully jump the two MES wires together.
Turn on the ignition switch and watch the SRS light. It should come on
for a few seconds and
then go off.

At this time; disconnect the two MES wires.
After a couple of seconds the SRS light will come on.

At this time; reconnect the two MES wires.
After a couple of seconds the SRS light will go off.

At this time; disconnect the two MES wires.
After a couple of seconds the SRS light should come on, blink two
times and go off; and
remain off.

Turn off the key. You have successfully erased your SRS DTCs.

To Read SRS DTC:

If you are interested in knowing what code is stored in the SRS
system, there is a way to get
that by jumping the SCS connector.

Under the right side of the glove box. You will find the DATA LINK
(3P) and the SCS (2P)
connectors. They should both be tucked into a green or blue rubber holder.
Pull out the (2P) SCS
connector and jump the two wires together. Then turn on the ignition
switch. The SRS light will
blink out a code sequence of long and short blinks, indicating the failure
mode that caused the
problem...
