The SDM cannot be reset.

Here's a partial reprint from the service manual;

Inflatable Restraint Sensing and Diagnostic Module Replacement

Caution

Be careful when you handle a sensing and diagnostic module (SDM). Do not strike or jolt the SDM. Before applying power to the SDM:

Remove any dirt, grease, etc. From the mounting surface.
Position the SDM horizontally on the mounting surface.
Tighten all of the SDM fasteners and SDM bracket fasteners to the specified torque value.
Failure to follow the correct procedures could cause air bag deployment, personal injury, or unnecessary SIR system repairs.

Caution

Proper operation of the supplemental inflatable restraint (SIR) sensing system requires that any repairs to the vehicle structure return the vehicle structure to the original production configuration. Not properly repairing the vehicle structure could cause non-deployment of the air bag in a frontal collision or deployment of the air bag for conditions less severe than intended. Incorrect configuration may result in personal injury.
ACCIDENT WITH AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT:

After a collision involving air bag deployment, replace these components. If you detect any damage to the mounting hardware, repair or replace the mounting hardware as needed.

Inflatable Restraint I/P (inflator) Module
Inflatable Restraint Sensing and Diagnostic Module
Inflatable Restraint Steering Wheel (inflator) Module After a collision involving air bag deployment, inspect the following components as indicated. Perform these component inspections in addition to the inspection indicated as "Accident With or Without Air Bag Deployment." If you find any damage to the mounting points or mounting hardware, repair the component or replace the hardware as needed.
Inflatable Restraint Steering Coil Assembly -- Inspect the coil and the coil wiring pigtail for melting, scorching, or other damage due to excessive heat.
