The warning light means there is a code waiting to be read.
There does not have to be anything wrong with the airbags themselves, for the system to be malfunctioning. It could be the inertial sensors. And yes it does have to be reset, but it is not really a computer. And a place like Autozone can easily read the codes and then reset them.

How to turn off front air bag Mercedes ml 350


You cannot just disable one air bag . You can disable all of them by pulling the fuse that covers the entire air bag circuit and then you will get the air bag warning constantly on the dash and no air bag protection.

If you try disconnecting the battery and then disconnecting one air bag by fiddling with the wiring connectors to that bag, the air bag warning will show and you will possibly cause the entire system to be shut down.

There are no cheap mickey mouse fixes. If you have an issue with the front air bag because the warning has displayed then take it to Mercedes and have them fix it. If you cannot afford that you are driving the wrong brand of car.

Seatbelts locked after minor collision


Your seat belts are tied in to your air bag system. Even though your air bags may not have deployed, your seat belt(s) have deployed a one-time use trigger designed to cinch you tightly into your seat in the collision you were in. There is no way to reset them, they will need to be replaced. A used, functioning seatbelt will work, but usually must be of the same year as your car, even if other years appear identical. The wrong year will appear to the on board computer as an error, and will not allow the system to be restored to functional (air bag light will not go off), even though now your seat belt will appear to function. If your air bag light stays on after the bulb-check sequence at startup, it means the system is disabled...the air bag will not function in a crash.

"Retriger airbag control unit"??? NOT! If the airbags are deployed in a 2000 Audi A4, the airbag control unit MUST be replaced. Pleases refer to 2000 Audi A4 service information for more details.

What is the red warning light "SRS"


It is the air bag malfunction warning light.

This will show if the fuse for the air bag operation has blown or if the fuse is removed and not replaced. There can also be other causes such as problems with the wiring or wiring connections.

As a first step check the fuse panel and ensure the fuse is OK. The fuse location is covered in the owner's manual.

2007 Passat wagon. I need to reset the air bag warning light.


the air bag light will only show if the ignition was turned on while it was disconnected.

it will defo need to be pluged into the computer to be put out but some smaller garages will have the software to do this and will be a little cheaper.here in ireland VW wanted 50euro to do mine but a small garage done it for 30euro.

you can buy code finders/reset gadgets on ebay but might not be worth it for one job compared to $130.

my suggestion would be to get the main dealer to do it if a normal automotive shop cannot access it.
