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.

Air bag warning light permanently on on the dash board


  • The Air Bag Warning light on your dashboard functions just link a check engine light does. When it comes on and stays on there is a issue and the only way to know is to get it Airbag Control Module scanned by a VAG com scanner.
  • I don't know if Auto Zone can scan this but it is worth a try as they are free. If they don't then you will have to go to a repair shop and have it scanned. Once you get it scanned you will know what is causing the Air Bag Warning light to stay on. Then you can post it hear and I can assist you further. There is really know way to know until it is scanned.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

On a 3.2 TL Acura, the "SRS" Indicator Light stays on after the engine starts. What codes will be indicated when I try and read the codes?


THE SRS means Air bag sensor and trigger ..

Simply put the SRS light tells you that the sensor cant connect to the trigger of your airbag namely the one locate in the steering wheel. This is beacause of a device known as a clock spring located in the steering. Its moves like a clock and allows the sensor and bag to get connection but sometimes the coil wires get broken.

To fix this take it to a SHOP.
reasons for that.
1.) A DEPLOYED AIR BAG WILL KILL YOU
2.) WITHOUT THE PROPER KNOWLEDGE YOU WILL DEPLOY THE AIR BAG
3.) EQUIPMENT IS EXPENSIVE

the fix involves. (REMOVE BATTERY)
1.) remove the steering wheel using the lock bolt and key
2.) unblot and remove then unlock the clock spring
3.) replace,
4.) recalibrate and reset spring
5.) reset error codes
6.) reassemble
7.) reset error codes.

My 2003 Matrix air bag light came on this morning. I've read some of the comments about this and heard it's very expensive. Does the light mean it won't work if I get in an accident or will it deploy on...


Hello, welcome to FIxYa. Please allow me to assist you.

First, we need to know why the air bag light is on. This can be from a variety of reasons. Some are expensive, some are not. I would first suggest taking the car to a place that can read the air-bag computer, and get the code or codes that are stored determined. The codes are what turns on the light, and leads us through the diagnosis. Without the codes, it is rather difficult to address the cost issues that would be involved.

To answer the second part of your question...the air bag may not deploy in the event of an accident if the light is illuminated on the dash.

Finally, no, the bag will not deploy whilst driving.

Please get the codes read, and get back to us, so that we may be better able to assist you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

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.
