Airbag light on

Unplugged the airbag my mistake and turned the light on. Does anyone know how to turn the light off without a scanner? 2001 Z3.
Thanks

Perhaps a bit of a silly question, but did you disconnect the battery?

Disconnecting the battery will not reset an airbag warning

My understanding is that you need a scan tool to reset the Airbag Light. I do not think the standard OBD II scan tool will do it, but I could be mistaken on that point.
The airbag system is a "safety of flight" system, and it is not possible for the system to be reset without intervention, that is, it can not reset itself even if the failure mode has been corrected. (Some systems will reset themselves once the failure is fixed, the airbag is not one of these systems.)
Disconnecting the airbag, and turning the Ignition ON will cause the error to be set. In reality, disconnecting any number of items in the system and turning the ignition on will cause the error to be set. Most commonly people will disconnect a seat switch and set the airbag light.
