Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Please rate my answer if it is useful to you.

Cheers,

SRS, that would be the supplemental restraint system, the airbag(s). As long as the light is on the airbag system is inoperative

What dose a SRS light mean on a dashboard


The SRS light is for the "Safety Restraint System" (Airbags). If the SRS light stays lit then there is a problem with the system and it may not function in the event of a crash. Have the SRS system services by a qualified technician. It is not something for the average DIYer.

Srs light stays on


There is a malfunction in your Supplemental Resraint System (SRS). You need to scan your SRS control module to retrieve fault codes and find out why the light is staying on.

Problem with the SRS. Not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional. Working with the SRS, is very dangerous, so do not attempt this repair.

What does SRS lit up on the dashboard mean. 1995 accord wagon.


the SRS stands for Supplemental Restraint System. Most people call it the air bags but the SRS system includes all of the sensors and control units for air bags, seat belt pre-tensioners and passenger detection systems on cars that are equiped with themeach time you start the car up the SRS control unit will do a self-test of the system to make sure all of the sensors are working properly. The SRS light will stay on while that test is conducted. If all is well and everything passes the on-board test the light will go out in about 7 seconds. If something is wrong the light will stay on.whenever a failure is detected for any reason,the SRS light is turned on and the system is shut off. The air bags will not be deployed when the SRS light is on.They call it a Supplemental Restraint System because your seat belts are your primary restraint system.

What does the red light on the bord with letters SRS means? It stays on for few seconds after I start the car (Honda accord 1995). Thank you


srs means secondary restraint system. e.g air bags and things like that. when it stays on for a few seconds its because it is doing a systems check. if the light stays on all the time then there is a problem. hope i helped.

My car shakes at about 55 and stops at 65 and my srs light stays


SRS light is for your air bags, worry not. shaking is a bad part in your front end suspension or badly balanced tire.
