Default S80 1999 SRS warning urgent light, code 26, how to rest

Hi Guys,
This is my first post so here we go.
I have a S80 1999 and the light and message 'SRS service urgent' has come on.

I have done some research and did the following:
1. Press the odometer reset button
2 put the key in and turned it to pos 1.
3. After 10 secs the message screen has the number 26
4. Tried to turn key to pos 11 for a further 5 secs to reset meesage but it will not reset.

I think was caused the light to come was a very hot day and I opened all 4 electric windows before starting the motor.
I suspect this caused the voltage to drop and cause the error message.
We also have the occasional message 'low voltage' message but the car starts OK. Buy I guess the battery is weak

So my questions are as follows:
Q1 What is code 26 mean? Can't find this anywhere.
Q2 Can I reset the SRS light at home?
I read something about the battery being disconnected causes it to come on but you may have to disconnect the battery for 15 minutes.
Any suggestion greatly appreciated.
Marke.

I've disconnected my battery for longer then 15 minutes on my 2005 S80 and it has not affected the SRS system or generated a warning. I'd probably take it in to be checked out, the SRS system isn't something you want to mess around with.
