For no obvious reason the SRS indicator light and another light that looks like a circle with a kind of V shape in the circle came on today. The only thing that has been different is that today my son in law who happens to be about 450lbs had to use the car he cannot use the seat belt..Is it possible the weight could have triggered something? any Ideas??
Thanks a bunch, Nancy

Re: SRS indicator light
I would advise taking the vehicle to the dealer. Although an airbag light can be turned off, there have been cases where it has deployed for no reason. You may not have that particular case, but I would highly advise making the trip to the dealer. An airbag light can also be a forwarning of a computer problem, Good luck, and be safe.

Hi. There are a few reasons why it wont show. Obvious one is blown bulb but other reasons include ecu (control unit) failure, blown fuse/ loss of power to the ecu and bad earth, unfortunately without getting diagnostic equipment plugged in to see if it can talk to the control unit it hard to know what your problem is.

if ur seatbelts are defective, it wont cost u anything. take it back to the dealer and tell them u want to have ur srs light looked at and trouble codes pulled. the seatbelts are lifetime warranty as long as the vehicle hasnt been in an accident
your srs light is indicating a bad connection. Disconnect battery and wait five minutes, then plug and unplug the seat belt wires going to the end that you plug your belt into, This is just one part of the srs, but I have had many that it turned out to be abad connection there, Also if you had a scanner you could find exactly what the trouble was. Generally the code will indicate what is defective. Without a code it's a guessing game.
Diagnosis of the system would normally require a scan tool. Since you just replaced the airbag on that side, logic says that it's the reason that the light is on. Did you replace it because it blew? Or was it for some other reason? Try disconnecting the battery for 30-60 minutes and then reconnecting it - it may be that since the bag was undone, the ECU has logged that fact and may need a reset to clear the SRS code. Try disconnecting the battery for an hour or so, or two, and then reconnecting it. Let me know as a reply on here if that worked, and we'll go from there if you still have the fault indication.
