Why You May Need An Airbag Module Reset And What An Airbag Module Is In The First Place

There are many safety components in cars that people aren’t even aware about—or if they are, don’t pay much attention to. The simple things such as seat belts and the brake system are somewhat cared for, but others like the SRS airbag module aren’t. If you yourself haven’t ever heard about the SRS airbag control module and what it does, perhaps this will help fill you in.

First off, it’s important to know where this unit is located. The airbag module can usually be found underneath the driver or passenger’s seat. In certain cars, however, it is located underneath the radio, in the center console, or in the kick panel.

Basically what this unit does is store information, in the form of hard codes and crash data, when the vehicle is involved in a crash. Some of the key bits of data stored are the speed the vehicle was travelling at when the accident occurred, whether or not the brake light switch was turned on, the engine speed, and the throttle position. Some modules also record whether or not the passengers of the vehicle were wearing their seat belt, the impact speed change, any airbag deployments, and any seat belt pre-tensioner deployments.

This data can then potentially be used by an Accident Reconstructionist to help paint a picture of the accident scene. More often than not, this information is favored over any eyewitness reports.

The importance of the SRS airbag control module is that the entire airbag system runs through it. That means each of the airbags in the vehicle—and there are many, if you think about it—rely on this small unit to operate. Essentially, if a vehicle is involved in a crash and has all these codes stored in its airbag module, the airbags will not work whatsoever until the module is repaired or altogether replaced.

If you are facing this issue in your own car and want to save yourself the hundreds of dollars necessary for module replacement, you can instead opt for an airbag module reset. By turning to the company Safety Restore for an airbag module reset you will not only be paying a fair price, but you will also be left with a lifetime warranty guarantee. The crash data reset will be completed in just 24 hours or less so you can be driving with properly functioning airbags once again in no time!

$50 Airbag Module Reset Service

Is your airbag light on in your vehicle? Has your vehicle been in an accident or involved even in a minor crash? Did your airbags deploy? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, we have an affordable solution for you. Airbag modules are the computers found in cars that control the airbag systems. They are responsible for obtaining the signal from impact sensors and deploying the airbags along with the seat belt tensioners to protect the passengers in the unlikely event of a crash. Once a crash occurs, the airbag module, or the computer, saves all the crash data in its memory. For example, if the airbags deployed along with the seat belts, the airbag light would go off and all of the details could be obtained by an OBD scanner. Many codes could be simply cleared with scanner, but the crash data cannot. Crash data is written in a from widely known as a “hard code” that used to mean that it’s there for good and the only way to solve the issue is replace the airbag module. However, with the modern technology and advanced programming, we are now able to access the memory chips in the module to reprogram the controller clearing all crash data and hard codes. This would re-flash the computer back to its factory state by reprogramming the original data into it making it like new again. Of course all of the SRS components, such as the airbags, seat belts, impact sensors and clock spring may still need to be repaired or replaced, but purchasing a new module would no longer be necessary. This is an extremely money-saving alternative that everyone knowing about it uses. New airbag modules can cost as much as a thousand dollars compared to a reset service of $50. Safety Restore is the nationwide leader in post-accident restoration specializing in airbag module resets. Having the largest compatibility database of makes and models in the United States, we guarantee our service or your money back! In addition, your locked and blown seat belts can be repaired and safely restored to factory condition. All services are completed within 24 hours – that is unbeatable.
