SRS warning light reset

The chrome on my steering wheel trim was starting to peel causing some sharp edges to appear. Not wanting to slice my finger I purchased a new ring. I found a video showing me how to remove/replace. I did that with the exception of not disconnecting the battery. I figure the crash sensor switch acts pretty much like an open circuit breaker. In any event, I completed the procedure and all the buttons are working fine. The problem is that I now have an left front SRS failure message and a constant warning light on the dash. I suspect that had I disconnected the battery ( couldn't find the darn thing ! ) I would not have this problem.
Question is, any suggestions to erase the warning without going to the dealer and having them run a $100 diagnostic? I am willing to buy an OBD II reader, but it must be Mac compatible. I have another unused Actron in a drawer that requires a Windows interface.
Any suggestions?

You will need MB specific diagnostics to clear, that fault is non volatile as it is a critical safety system.
