This is now an MOT failure and could simply be a connection problem or control module fault?
SRS stands for Safety Restraint System and is commonly referring to either a vehicle’s Airbag or seat belt pretensioner.
An airbag is a vehicle safety device. It is an occupant restraint system consisting of a flexible fabric envelope or cushion designed to inflate rapidly during a vehicle collision. Its purpose is to cushion occupants during a crash and provide protection to their bodies when they strike interior objects such as the steering wheel or a window.
Modern vehicles may contain multiple airbag modules in various side and frontal locations of the passenger seating positions, and sensors may deploy one or more airbags in an impact zone at variable rates based on the type, angle and severity of impact.
The airbag is designed to only inflate in moderate to severe frontal crashes. Airbags are normally designed with the intention of supplementing the protection of an occupant who is correctly restrained with a seat belt. When the SRS light is on it is indicating that there is a fault on the system. The most common fault is a wiring connection problem. Our technicians from our workshop in Chatham in Medway can carry out a fault code read that will highlight where the problem lies.
Most designs are inflated through pyrotechnic means and can only be operated once. Newer side-impact airbag modules consist of compressed air cylinders that are triggered in the event of a side impact vehicle impact.
