The SRS light on the dash just came on. The only work I had done prior was remove both front seats to clean the carpet. Any ideas?

Sounds like either you did not connect the seat belt restraint wiring when the seats where put back in. This is a common problem. You will need to look under the seat and make sure that there are no loose wiring at all. The SRS is for the seatbelts.

    forgot to mention that the SRS light was now on and never has been before and the only thing I did other than drive the car for 10 mins. was to move the seat slightly.

  • 1 Turn the ignition key to the "II" position.

  • 2 Check the lights on the dash. You should see a variety of dash lights light up. One of those lights will be a "Check engine" light. This light should stay lit with the ignition key in the "II" position. The rest of the lights should go out. If the "Check engine" light begins to blink, you may have a problem with one of the vehicle's electronic components. Consult your owner's manual or call your dealership for possible servicing issues.
  • 3 Start the engine. The "check engine" light should go out after a few seconds. If it does not, this can indicate either a maintenance interval has been reached or a more serious problem with the vehicle's emissions control system. Again, it is advised to consult your owner's manual or call the dealership for service.
  • 4 Check for an illuminated "SRS" light on the dash. The SRS light indicates a problem with the supplemental restraint system, i.e., the airbag, on the Camry. This needs to be serviced by a professional mechanic.
  • 5 Check for an oil light on the dash. The oil light is in the shape of a small oil canister. When this lights up, it indicates low oil pressure. Low oil pressure is caused by a blockage in the system, a weak oil pickup or oil pump, or low oil levels in the engine. Check and see if your Camry is overdue for an oil change. It is recommended that the oil be changed at 5,000 miles or every six months.
  • 6 Check for the low fuel warning. The fuel light on the Camry is on the fuel gauge near the "E" on the gauge face. The low fuel light means that you have to refuel your vehicle.
  • 7 Check for the seat belt warning light. The seat belt warning light is a picture of a figure wearing a seat belt. If your seat belt is unbuckled, then this light will illuminate (along with a warning chime) indicating that you should buckle up.
  • 8 Check for an orange car with lights on (on the dash lights). This warning light indicates that one or both of your brake lights has failed, or the electrical resistance in the bulb filament indicates that it is about to fail and will need service soon.

    2002 clk - srs light on all the time

    think this is a dealer job ,the radio is connected via a big computerised circuit board behind the centre column of the dash .try giving the wires under the front seats a wiggle and make sure their are no coke cans or anything else under seats to damage the connections for the explosive seat belt restraint puller devices

    HI the SRS trouble light is on on the dash,

    Hi, this is usually caused by an accident. What happens in such a case is the pre-tensioners in the seat belts are activated when the impact sensors are activated. The SRS control unit is blown when this happens to make sure that the SRS system operates correctly after repairs. You will need to replace the SRS control unit and the seat belts.

    I have a 2003 Ford F-150 4.2L V6 that has an error flashing on the passenger side seat belt light. It flashes 2 times then 7 times and it repeats for a total of 4 consecutive sequences.

    If you are talking about the SRS light, the LFC ( light Flash Code ) 27 is :

    Passenger Air Bag Deactivation ( PAD ) warning lamp shorted to ground

    Have you done, or had any work done in the dash area as of late ?

    The PAD light cannot illuminate, so the truck is reporting the code via the SRS LFC.

    Start with the PAD lamp, and work you way backwards on the wiring harness, looking for a wire that has the insulation damaged, and making contact with the dash frame.
    Could be right at the PAD lamp holder also.

    This will take some time, but should be an easy fix.

    Remove front seats to clean carpet

    there are four (torx) T-40 screws on the four corners of the seat rails. Then disconnect the connectors under the seat and the seats can be removed.(Make sure that the key is off and out of the car before disconnecting the connectors under the seats.) If the key is turned on when a seat is disconnected then the airbag light will be illuminated and the airbags on that seat or both seats can be deactivated.

    Srs light

    Well thats one of two things. First the srs light stands for Supplemental Restraint System or in otherwords the airbag system now the light being on could be because its due for a maintance check up or there could be a problem with the system
