SOURCE: srs light on dashboard on mercedes e320 1999

SRS is not DIY. I strongly suggest you go to a reputable repairer an have it scanned and unless you are very competent Auto Tech leave it to them to repair.The SRS lamp is warning you that the Supplimentry Restraint System has a fault and will NOT funtion if you have an accident. Therfore you don't have this as a backup with your seatbelts .There is a good chance that it is the pressure pad in the passengers seat as has been suggested along with loom and module failures.

Get your ECM replaced. Usually it's next to battery or inside front fenders. The rain must have shorted out connections and fried ECM. Engine will sputter until it is done. Usually autozone, advance auto, or dealer has ECM.

1997 honda civic 1.6L DX SRS Air Bag light stuck on after drove throo heavy rain!


A code reader may not access the body computer, but a professional scanner should. You may be able to research the air bag system online and find a way to make the light flash the codes.
I would guess after reading your description one of the front crash sensors got water in the connector and the sensor has failed.

Had a leak in front windshield window after it was replaced. After heavy rain this morning, some water was on my steering wheel and some on steering column. Now my SRS light stays on & horn does not...


Depending on the year and make of this car or truck when you turn on the key the system runs a test and if the problem was repaired it will shut light off, if the light remains on then theres a problem. even if you had a scan tool reset the light it will come right back on as soon as the engine is started, this sounds like something got wey and shorted out, the first thing i would check is the fuses and then look around at the bottom of the steering column and check connections for water or rusted terminals,inside the steering wheel is a clock spring that contains wires for horn air bag and other controls if cars has them like cruise or steering wheel radio controls, the part called clock spring is what makes the wheel be able to turn without ripping wires, it like a retractable bunch of wires and sometimes they go bad just from turnning the wheel so often, heres a picture of it, chrysler is famous for problems with this, good day.johnjohn2_97.jpg

Engine cuts out during heavy rains. This started


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM BUT WITH AN ASTRO VAN. THE PROBLEM WAS WATER WAS GETTING INTO THE FUEL PUMP CONNECTOR UNDERNEATH THE VAN, NEXT TO THE FUEL TANK.THIS WAS CAUSING A SHORT, NOT BAD ENOUGH TO BLOW THE FUSE, BUT ENOUGH TO CAUSE THE PUMP TO SHUT DOWN. BEST WAY TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM IS TO FIND THE CONNECTOR AND SPRAY IT WITH WATER WHILE THE VAN IS RUNNING. ALSO DO A WIGGLE TEST, THIS IS DONE BY GRABBING THE HARNESS TO THE PUMP AND MOVING IT AROUND, IF YOU HAVE A LOOSE CONNECTOR OR A BAD WIRE THE VAN SHOULD SHUT OFF.

Audi A4 1.9 TDI 130BHP engine power loss when it's raining


This is the correct solution..........replace the solenoid valve N239 as the electrical connection is affected by dampness. What happens is that the EGR valve is jammed open by the solenoid and this allows oxygen starved air into the cylinders (exhaust gas) and combustion is poor.
Quick fix is to disconnect the vac hose to the EGR actuator and block the end with a self tapping screw or pencil. This will work for sure....

Air bag light on


the flashing is a code, you need to get a pen and a piece of paper and decode this. It is a two digit number the first set of flashes is the first number so lets say it flashes 3 times and then pauses for 3 to 5 seconds your first number would be 3 and then after the pause it blinks 4 times that would be your second number... so your code would be 34. anyways here is a list of the code meanings so after you count the two set of flashes and get your code compare it here

12=Low Battery Voltage
13=Air Bag Circuit Shorted to Ground
14=Primary Crash Sensor Circuit Shorted to Ground
21=Safing Sensor Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly
22=Safing Sensor Output Shorted to Battery Voltage
23=Safing Sensor Circuit Input Feed/Return Circuit Open
24=Safing Sensor Output Feed/Return Circuit Open
32=Driver Side Air Bag Circuit High Resistance or Open
33=Passenger Side Air Bag Circuit High Resistance or Open

Jetta GLX 1998 (old body), when it rains heavy, car run rough


Sounds like you need new wires and or cap and rotor, had the same problem on my jetta 1.8L when I would drive it in heavy rain it would bog down and misfire. The water blows threw the rad right onto your distributor and wires causing the short (old and cracked or just defective). Try it out I'm sure that will fix it.
