90% of the time its not an airbag thats bad, but rather a clockspring in the steering column or a seatbelt buckle switch. you will need to have the srs computer scanned with a scan tool and there will be a code or codes that will tell you what part of the system has failed, for example there will be a code # then discription of the problem like ******* drivers seatbelt buckle , may be the code and then you would check and see if the connection is good and the connector is connected and if all looked good then you would replace the buckle. the only problem is you would need to pay a shop to get it checked unless you haveaccess to a scanner, good day.

HI there. The best way to find out which air bag is bad is to have the OBD2 trouble codes read. Autozone and many other auto parts stores will read the trouble codes on your vehicles computer system for free. I strongly advise that you don't tinker with the air bag system or the air bags themselves because the danger they can pose if they deploy with youhanldeing them, especially of you have some tools in your hand. Just have them read the codes so you can find out which one it is then you can replace it. Before you do ANYTHING with the air bad system you need to disconnec your battery and leave it disconnected for at lest 20 minutes to make sure that the capasitors have discharged. While working on the system make sure the battery stays disconnected. If you are unsure at all on doing the replacement yourself have a qualified mechanic do it. I hope that this helps you out and please be safe.

Door locks click and airbag lght stayes on


BCM has nothing to do with air bags , air bags has own control module . SRS ! If the air bag light stays on there are DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored . Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . You won't fix anything just replacing parts . Testing by a qualified technician is the only way . You could kill yourself messing with the airbags ,not knowing what your doing !

How to reset srs light in C 180 elegance 2001 model.


The only way to turn the light off is to repair the issue in the system. The SRS module runs a self diagnostics every time the key is turned "ON" and will set the light when any setting is not within parameters. You will need to have the car hooked up to a diagnostic machine capable of accessing the SRS functions and determine the issue. Once the problem is repaired the light should go off on the next key cycle.

Air bag light stays on


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

What do you mean by SRS in the light in the dashboard


Hi,

Supplementry Restraint System (SRS) = Airbag

Your vehicle's computer has detected a critical issue within the Airbag circuit.

You will need to have the codes read from your computer, to determine which component is causing this.


Cheers,

I have a mitsubishi galant 2007 and the SRS light stayson all the time what does that mean


It could be requesting an airbag service (which usually consists of someone making sure it's still there and then resetting the warning light with a diag. unit) or the ecu has detected something different - a seat has been unplugged or steering wheel removed and re-fitted or often just a loose connection. some diagnostic systems can tell you what caused the problem, it may be worth having it checked but the vehicle should be safe to use without fear of an airbag not deploying.
hope this helps.

Warning light showing srs what is that


Hi, SRS stands for Supplemental Restraint System. Your air bag system has detected a fault and shut itself down to avoid an accidental deployment. You will need to visit your dealer or a shop that has a scanner for your SRS to determine the fault and affect appropriate repairs. Please let me know if you have more questions and thanks for using FixYa.

What is srs


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.

Cheers.
