"SRS" stands for "Supplemental Restraint System". This includes your airbags and your seatbelt pre-tensioners. The only way to find out why the light is on is to scan your airbag module and retrieve the fault codes that will be stored to let you know which part of the system is failing.
Please also note that whenever the SRS light is ON, the safety systems in your vehicle WILL NOT WORK in the event of an accident. It is highly recommended that you get this properly diagnosed and repaired by a trained service technician as soon as possible.
Unless you have had specific training and have access to the proper tools and equipment required for the supplemental restraint system in your vehicle, I DO NOT recommend trying this at home. (accidental airbag deployment can be fatal.)
SRS IS SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM. THIS IS YOUR AIRBAG SYSTEM.WHEN YOU SEE SRS LIGHT FLASHING TAKE VECHICLE TO DEALERSHIP SEE WHAT CAUSING PROBLEM DONT TRY FIX AIRBAGS SYSTEM YOUR SELF LET DEALERSHIP FIX AIRBAGS DANGEROUS THEY CAN DEPLOY WHILE TRYING TO FIX SO LET PROFESSIONAL TECHNICIAN FIX.
When the SRS light is On the system has determined that a problem
exists and because the system doesn't have the ability to judge how
that detected problem will affect the air bags deployment the system
shuts down the airbag system. They will not deploy in an accident where
a normally functioning system would deploy the bags.
The SRS is a supplemental restraint system meaning that your seat belts
are the primary restraint system. We're told that "airbags do save
lives"; if that is true then you compromise your safety by not
attending to the cause of the SRS light being on.
Good luck and please rate this with a testimonial too.
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.
tHIS LIGHT IS ON TO ALERT YOU TO THE FACT THAT A FAULT HAS OCCURED IN THE AIRBAG SYSTEM AND THE AIRBAG DIAGNOSTIC MONITOR HAS DISABLED THE SYSTEM, THE LIGHT WILL REAMAIN ON UNTIL THE FAULT IS REPAIRED, SO RIGHT NOW YOU HAVE NO SRS, THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM IS THE FOLLOWING. When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel
