The car has to be scanned to retrieve the codes to diagnose it....
but the lamp means the system is inoperative until the problem is fixed...(it will not deploy) not to worry, it will not deploy while driving....but on the flipside it will not deploy if you are involved in an accident either......some people prefer them inoperative,some people like the safety of them...choice is yours

This simply indicates that there are likely issues with the air-bag or the air-bag sensor.

The air-bag cannot explode on its own. But you will need an expert to have a look and make possible corrections.

Good luck dear.

That light means a malfunction is present very unlikely to explode on its own but it is malfunctioning so beware.
may or may not deploy in an accident depends on whats wrong

    this is for the other techs in here.

    an air bag CAN explode by itself! the only time they are relitivly safe is when they are removed from car and stored vinyl side up. static electricity can deploy them. further more some are mechanically deployed just like a rifle cartridge volvo and early air bag jeep are examples. the srs light on does NOT mean it wont deploy. the air bag is designed to try to deploy no matter what codes or faults are present if an accident is detected. older chryslers were going off on panic brakeing situations.

    sorry for ranting its the forman in my trying to keep people safe

Turnsignal switch, brake switch,windows, and heater blower stoped workingdodge electrical problems


air bag power runs off the same power line you may have a faulty air bag been fitted.it may have burn't out the voltage control unit for the ignition. or the air bag has not been wire'd in properly and its shorted out the trip in the control unit. you will need to remove the air bag, ( battery off car wait 20min ) remove the air bag. and have it tested. there have been a lot of copy air bags been reported and they are more dangerous than they should be cause electrical fires or in an accident they explode in your face. and when explode they do do some damage to your face..... would have this check.

Dummy light is on and says "INFL REST". What does that mean?


INFL REST means "Inflatable Restrant" problem in your air bag it is either saying your air bag is on and working or that iit is not working.

Generally, the air bag computer has stored a trouble code. You will need the factory service manual to retrieve the code and troubleshoot it.

Hope this helps.

Not likely that the air bag will deploy without notice, its supposed to be a safety device not a hazard.
the light can mean the air bag(or belt) it may not work, or it is due for servicing, this can sometimes be when they get to 10 years old, if your model has the blow up belt it may mean the belt is out of date, pehaps the mechanic was correct.
You will need a specialist air bag tech, who will check or replace necessary items and restet the warning light.

My srs light is on


Hi the srs light being on means your air bag system needs servicing, the reason being is that air cannistors that fire the air bags only have a certain life limit, once they reach this limit they need replacing as the air bag system wont be working properly until you get this serviced.

its not a job you can do yourself as the general public cant get the parts to do the work nor the machine to reset the system.

SERVICE RIDE CONTROL


Hi. this car is equipped with a air ride system that is very sophisticated. There are four air bag Assembly that are located and attached to each tire axle on your car. each axle has a air ride sensor unit that regulates the air in and out flow during transit. there are air flow lines that run to each tire or suspension assembly as well. these lines are fed threw a compressor system that is located inside the trunk.

When you had your unfortunate accident, the damage on the front driver side has initiated some sort of damage that has damaged the sensor or it has damaged the air bag or sir line assembly. the warning light is a reminder that is instructing you or the owner , to take this car in for this service.

I suspect there has been some sort of damage to the air bag assembly on the affected side of your vehicle.

it may be a sensor or it could be more serious like an damaged air line or bag. The best way to find out is to take it in for the inspection by a qualified service tech.

PLease rate and god bless:)

Airbags deployed


You have to disconnect the battery, replace the air bag modules (air bag modules are the things that explode in your face) and the crash sensors and the control unit or module that came with it. Reconnect the battery and the car should start. Hope this is helpful.
