The SRS (Secondary Restrain System) should not be effected by a simple replacement of the 12 volt battery. The Air Bags are on a completely different system and should be trouble shot by someone who know what they are doing.

PEOPLE have had their necks broken or killed by airbags and you need to be careful with what you are doing and if you do not have the experience in handling this system, you are putting yourself in harms way.

Take it to a shop and ask them to READ and CLEAR the lights with a scanner and not manually.

Your describing what happenes when a car runs out of battery power and your altenator has failed you. On your dash lights, has a battery symbol light appeared? An easy way to find out if your altenator has kicked the bucket is to hook up a voltage meter and see if you have 14.5 volts at your battery while the engine is running. But before you do that, you need to get your battery charged. Once you have that taken care of any auto parts store can do a free test with a battery tester to find out what is the cause of your electrical issue. For your SRS light it maybe due to your battery running dead or something else, You will need a scanner for that and again an auto parts store should be able to pull the code. Hope this helps you out.

Reset srs light after replacing seatbelt


To reset the SRS light on an Acura Integra, pull down the SRS service connector. Unplug this connector so you have access to jump the harness. Start with the ignition OFF. Jump the SRS plug. Turn the ignition ON. The SRS light will come on then off.------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After changing my ML350 battery the SRS light is on, can I reset it without going to the dealer


you can try disconnecting the battery again and see if the light goes away but usually when a srs light comes on the only way to clear it is with the 'sds' which the dealer has and sometimes the independent shops might have one too. Mercedes doesn't allow you to reset it from the vehicle due to it being safety related. when the srs light is on all your airbags and seatbelt etr's are disabled. if your vehicle has pre-safe then you will have to just drive it around til it relearns the steering angle sensor again. if that's the case it will say see owners manual in the display of the instrument cluster when showing the fault.

Battery was low and put in new battery,problem SRC Light stays on how can I reset the SRC light?


I'm guessing you mean the SRS light, yes. When you have a bad battery the battery voltage can drop below 10 volts. The SRS unit detects this voltage loss and set a DTC (diagnostic trouble code) for an internal SRS unit failure. You have to erase the DTC memory. You'll need an SCS service connector tool (P/N 07PAZ-0010100) You can order one from your local honda dealer. Don't worry its not more than $10. Then you'll have to find the MES 2pin connector located in the upper right hand corner of the drivers underdash fuse box. It can be gray, green or yellow in color. 1.)Turn the ignition switch off. 2.)Unplug the MES connector from the fuse box and plug your SCS special tool into the MES connector. 3.) Turn the ignition switch on. 4.) The (red) SRS light in the dash will come on for 6 seconds and then go off. Remove the SCS tool from the MES (2P) connector within 4 sec. after the SRS light went off. 5.) The SRS light comes on again. Reconnect the SCS tool to the MES (2P) connector within 4 seconds after the SRS light came on. 6.) The SRS light goes off. Remove the SCS tool from the MES (2P) connector within 4 sec. 7.) The SRS light indicates that the memory is erased by blinking twice. 8.) Turn the ignition switch off and wait ten seconds. You may have to do this procedure a few time to get the steps correct. If this sounds to complicated I'm sure your local Honda dealer would be happy to reset the light for you for no charge. Just let them know that the battery was recently replaced and you think that the SRS light came on due to low battery voltage. -Hope this helps:)

What is the SRS light? I have 1996 honda accord


the SRS stands for Supplemental Restraint System. Most people call it the air bags but the SRS system includes all of the sensors and control units for air bags, seat belt pre-tensioners and passenger detection systems on cars that are equiped with them

each time you start the car up the SRS control unit will do a self-test of the system to make sure all of the sensors are working properly. The SRS light will stay on while that test is conducted. If all is well and everything passes the on-board test the light will go out in about 7 seconds. If something is wrong the light will stay on.

whenever a failure is detected for any reason,the SRS light is turned on and the system is shut off. The air bags will not be deployed when the SRS light is on.

They call it a Supplemental Restraint System because your seat belts are your primary restraint system.

hope that answers your question

Endeaver srs light is on after replacing battery how can I reset also the passenger seatbelt light stays on


The light is on because the SRS computer detected excessively low voltage, likely right before your battery failed/was replaced.
To clear the light you will need to take it to a dealer or a repair shop with a Mitsubishi-compatible SRS scantool.

This happens so frequently, I never charge customers for clearing SRS lights that are related to battery changes (code will be IG low voltage A and B).

An OBD-II scanner won't pick up any codes for you SRS light as it' on a different system. I think only dealers carry these scanners. Your light means your airbags may fail to deploy in an accident or could deploy without any warning

As you already know The Supplemental Restraint System (or SRS) is the system that controls your airbags. Unfortunately, there are MANY things that trigger this annoying light, and to making it go away can cause plenty of headaches.

Things that can cause the SRS light to turn on include:


  • Letting battery drain too low
  • Bad Sensor
  • Blown fuse
  • Unplugging the car’s battery
  • Removing the gauge cluster/installing aftermarket gauges
  • G-Force sensors that are under each of the front fenders ($250.00 each)
  • Bad clock spring (located inside your steering wheel)
  • Bad ECU
  • Bad reverse light switch on transmission
  • Car was in an accident (which is not the problem in your case)
  • Airbag defective/unplugged
  • To fix this problem, some have gone to the dealership to have the SRS computer reset. Unfortunately, this costs somewhere around $70.00..... Another option is to invest in a OBD2 Code Reader US $32.94+ on ebay most of the time the cause of this light is something simple like changing out the battery. but that could have set the code off if you reset the computer this will shut the light off and the system will be fine and save yourself a couple of grand
The Car Scanner Trouble Code Reader is for real-time automotive diagnosis based on the OBD2 protocol. By simply plugging it into your vehicles diagnostic socket, you will be able to Read any trouble codes related to the "Check Engine Light" and identify the code by consulting the manual. It will also Erase or Reset the Check Engine light. this should tell you wich sensors are out or giving a faulty signal if you do not wish to invest in an obd2 code reader call you local autozone or advance auto parts and ask if they do free obd2 readings most do and they sell the parts you are most likely going to need I hope this helps ...............good luck
