SRS module is a very sensitivity electronic equipment.

Check voltage at the battery posts.

It should be 13.8V to 14.2V

If it's under 13.8V then clean alternator cable,belt tensioner, and belt.

Recheck voltage after you clean the battery terminals.

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.

You are right, SRS is to do with the airbags (Secondary Restraint System, the seatbelts being the first!)

It is almost certainly a bad sensor or a fault with an airbag squib (the thing that fires the bag.)

I would advise against DIY fault-finding. Let a professional look at it using proper diagnostic equipment.

Hope this helps!

Can't get the SRS light to go off?


SRS means Supplementary Restraint System or as an Air Cushion Restraint System (ACRS), if the light is on, it is most likely a computer response telling you something is wrong. The SRS refers to the deployment of your airbag in
an accident.

Red ligt srs on the dash board its on all the time on my 2001 mercedes c320 and shows a malfunction


SRS stands for Supplemental Restraint System (Airbag). If the light os on then the airbag system is disabled and will not work in a collision.

To remedy this you must retreive the codes from the airbag computer, this must be done with a scan tool capable of reading that system on a mercedes. Once this is done repairing the problem should be fairly easy.

Most likely cause of a SRS light being on would be a disconnected wire or a broken clockspring.

Check all fuses.

Weak power from alternator.

Use a volt meter and check for the voltage.

It should be 13.8V to 14.2V

HOw do you reset the SRS display


The light is on to indicate a fault in the airbag system, the light will remain on until the fault is repaired, also understand as long as the SRS waring indicator is on the airbag system is disabled

SRS


SRS stand for Supplymentary Restraint System, The purpose of the SRS light on your instrument panel is to alert you of a potential problem with your supplemental restraint system. It should blink seven times when you turn the ignition switch to ON or START and go OFF. A possible fault in the system can lead to any of the following: (a) The light does not come on when you turn the ignition ON. (b) The light stays on after the engine starts. (c) The light comes on while you are driving. Apart from the conventional causes of these faults (faulty airbag system), majority of the light indicator problem has been attributed to ignorance while fixing or repairing mechanical and/or wiring systems within the vehicle. If the SRS indicator light alerts you to a problem, have the supplemental restraint system inspected as soon as possible. If you ignore this indication, the airbags might not inflate when you need them. Likely Causes:
  • Steering wheel modifications
  • Faulty driver/passenger seat sensors for your airbag system (located under the seats)
  • Faulty seat belt mechanism
  • Tampered system components or wiring (e.g battery jumpering)
* Sometimes, a little adjustment of your seat belts and/or seat positions might fix the indicator problem over time (if the sensors are not faulty).
Precautions:
  • Do not modify your steering wheel or any other part of the supplemental restraint system. Modifications could make the system ineffective.
  • Do not tamper with the system's components or wiring. This could cause the airbags to inflate inadvertently, possibly injuring someone very seriously.
  • Tell anyone who works on your vehicle that you have a supplemental restraint system. Failure to follow the procedures and precautions in the official service manual could result in personal injury or damage to the system.
  • If all sensors are ok, the system can be reset using appropriate tools; refer to specially trained technicians.
