An airbag module is a computer found in all vehicles equipped with an airbag system and acts as controller. All impact sensors, seat belts, airbags and even the clockspring is linked to it. As an computer, the airbag unit read and writes data vital to the proper function of its designated use. During an accident, the airbag module writes crash data and stores it in the memory chip. In addition, the airbags may deploy along with the seat belts and tensioners. Once this occurs, the airbag light goes off and the airbag module is considered useless, Before, you would toss this "bad" module and purchase a new one from a dealer for hundreds of dollars.

An SRS airbag modules, also known as the ECU or the airbag electronic crash unit, is a very important computer found in all cars manufactured after 1996 for the U.S. market. It is also known as the airbag controller, SRS module, SRS unit, SRS control unit, derm, airbag brain or simply the airbag module. It is always working, writing data while communicating with the vehicles engine computer. It is in place to work with and control the entire airbag system in your vehicle. When an accident or a crash occurs, it communicates with the crash sensors by receiving data and analyzing the crash and triggers (if needed) the airbags to deploy (as well as which ones) and lock the seat belt retractors and/or the seat belt pretensioners by securing the passengers in their seats. Without an SRS airbag module is is unsafe to operate a motor vehicle and whenever your airbag light is on, you should always check your cars system for fault codes!
Why is my airbag light on?
Your airbag light may be on due to various reasons and most of the time because of an airbag fault. This could be related to the airbag module itself or any of the following airbag components:
Faulty seat belt pretensioners
Faulty airbag clockspring
Crash sensors fault
Crash data stored
Wiring harness problem
Miscommunication or no communication
While these are the most common faults, your airbag light may be on due to other reasons. Regardless of what it is, you should always scan your system using an OBD airbag scanner to read and obtain the codes. If you do not own an OBD airbag scanner, you can get this diagnosed at any local shop. If you work with cars often, we recommend investing into an OBD airbag scan tool to scan the system and retrieve codes whenever your airbag light is on. The tool is around $100 and would pay for itself almost immediately when comparing to false diagnostic charges and fees.
How do I reset my airbag light?
The airbag light reset depends on the airbag faults. If there are minor codes such as a wiring fault or communication issue, this can usually be fixed by addressing the fault. An OBD scan tool can also erase any soft codes that are not related to a crash. If your car has been in an accident, you will probably have the airbags deployed, locked seat belts, faulty crash sensors and/or a bad airbag clockspring. The SRS airbag system computer or module will now have crash codes or crash data known as hard codes. This is something that no airbag scan tool not the dealer can reset. This is where we come in!

My airbags deployed, will I need to have my SRS airbag control module reset?
Yes. Whenever you have an airbag code related to the airbags deployment, you will always need your SRS module reset. Before, the only solution to this was buying a new module and laying hundreds of dollars at the dealer. Thousands of SRS units would go to trash! But with the rising industry is salvage cars being repaired, rebuilt and safely back on the road - the demand for new methods and safety procedures came to be. Our SRS airbag module reset being one of them. Many dealers, shops and individuals are now rebuilding salvage cars after accident, that are bought from salvage auctions such as copart.com and iaai.com and rebuilt safely to be back on the road with salvage, reconstructed or rebuilt titles. Most of these cars/vehicles will require a safety salvage inspections to ensure that the motor vehicle has been safely rebuilt and is safe to operate on the road. It is also inspected against theft and stolen parts. Keeping this in mind, if your car has no airbags or had the airbags deployed, you will need the SRS unit reset.
Why does the SRS airbag control module need to be reset?
When an accident occurs, the SRS airbag module writes codes in its memory that contain crash information. Once written, this SRS controller becomes "locked" until it is replaced or reprogrammed. This is due to the fact that the car will no longer be safe to operate. In addition, the airbag module goes into a "black box" state that awaits an accident investigation in case it is needed. However, when the car is written off the insurance or the accident has been minor, the vehicle can return to the road. At this point the SRS airbag comfort modules needs to be reset. We provide this reset service at an affordable price and offer a 24 hour turnaround. Your SRS module will be reset and your airbag light will go away.
