If the SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) light stays on in your vehicle, your car’s internal computer senses a problem with the airbags, and has disabled them. While your airbags will not randomly deploy, they also may not deploy in the case of an accident, so it is important to visit an experienced mechanic to find and fix the problem.
When starting the ignition in your car, the SRS light will illuminate for 6-7 seconds, then turn off if the car senses no problems. If the SRS light stays on or starts flashing on and off, you may have a problem with the airbags themselves, a loose wire, a faulty seat belt buckle, or a problem with the Engine Control Unit (ECU) that is causing the airbag warning light to stay on. At My Auto Solutions in Buford, Georgia, our mechanics offer airbag module reset, removal, and installation services to put you safely back on the road.
What to Do When the SRS Light Stays On
The first step is to take your car to a mechanic to locate the problem. Auto technicians can then adjust the airbag sensor in your car to determine whether you have a problem with the ECU or the airbag module. If your SRS light stays on because of an issue with the airbags themselves, an experienced technician will scan the computer system in your car to find the exact problem and repair the broken or malfunctioning parts.
