Dizzy My Airbag System light stays on!!

Hi,
I need some help with my airbag system. I fixed a front end damaged Ion 2 2007. I replaced the air bag, clockspring, seatbelts and even the small yellow plug with the black lock tabs. The only thing I have not replaced is the SDM module under the center console. I took it to the GM dealer, they found an error code DTC B1000 – “Replace the control module setting the DTC as current. Refer to Control Module References for replacement, setup, and programming. Did you complete the replacement?” This is what was listed in the GM manual. The dealer says I need a new module. $500.00

I saw these ads stating they can reprogram the SDM module to new settings. Do these programs work? Can I get one from a junk yard as long as it has the same part number? I'm running out of ideas!

Your dealer is correct, a unclearable 1000 code requires module replacement... whenever the air bags deploy the module usually needs to be replaced and reprogrammed

Do I need to buy a new one! $500.00 Or can I get one out of another car?

Sounds like someone is trying to get a wreck looking good for resale without a care to the lives of the new owners.
