needs the diagnostic scanner that has the toyota software to read and or clear
air bag faults

if air bag light is on and a chime ..air bag will not deploy

fault normally is the clock spring or seat belt restraint

an auto electrician and
some better equipped mechanical workshops will have that scanner equipment
and be able to fix the problem
if no luck asking them .... then yes a dealer

Shop around for a code reader capable of reading SRS codes.
