Default Air bag module

Daughter has a 2004 PT . battery went dead , airbag light went on and stayed on after new battery was out in . now the airbag light won't go off. she had it scanned (?) and apparently the module needs replacing .
Anyone know where the module is, can I replace it or is it a dealer only repair and what's a module cost ?
Thanks

Have you tried unhooking the battery and letting the system reset. This fixes a lot of issues.

I think everything is contained within the airbag itself. Also, it has a passenger side airbag which has seat sensors to know when someone is sitting in it. Any of that can cause the light to come on. Here is one thread I found doing a Google search.

Airbag Seat Sensor???

The airbag controller module is attached to the floor pan under the floor center console, just behind the shifter assembly.

From PT Cruiser shop manual:
ORC (occupant restraint controller) is airbag module

"REMOVAL
Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
cable.
Wait two minutes for the system reserve capacitor to discharge before servicing any airbag components.
Remove the center console
Remove ORC module mounting nuts and ground eyelet, then remove module.
Disconnect ORC 23-way connector.
Remove ORC from vehicle.
INSTALLATION
Connect ORC connector and ensure that the connector and all locking tabs are engaged.
CAUTION: USE SUPPLIED NUTS ONLY
(Position ORC (arrow pointing forward) in the console floor bracket, replace ground eyelet, and attach the nuts and tighten to 9.6 to 14 Nm (85 to 125 in. lbs.) torque.
NOTE: Place the ground eyelet over the front (towards the front of the vehicle) weld stud when reattaching the ORC.
Install center console assembly

WARNING: DO NOT CONNECT BATTERY NEGATIVE
CABLE YET (Refer to ELECTRICAL/RESTRAINTS
- DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING - AIRBAG SYSTEM)
.
Close hood.
Verify vehicle and system operation"

DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING - AIRBAG SYSTEM
"With the battery negative remote cable disconnected, connect the DRB IIIt scan tool to the Data Link connector.
Turn the ignition key to the ON position. Exit vehicle with the scan tool.
After checking that no one is inside the vehicle, connect the battery negative remote terminal.
Read and record the ACTIVE Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) data.
Read and record any STORED DTC’s.
Refer to the proper Body Diagnostic Procedures manual if any DTC’s are found.
If the airbag warning lamp either fails to light, or goes ON and stays ON, there is a system malfunction.
To test the airbag warning lamp (bulb) operation in the cluster, refer to Electrical, Instrument Cluster, Diagnosis and Testing - Instrument Cluster.
Refer to the proper Body Diagnostic Procedures manual for any other system problems."
