The Supplemental Restraint System has the important job of protecting both the driver as well as any passengers in the event of an accident. Since the airbag module is like the brains of this system, it determines what needs to occur when. The SRS can protect you only if it is in good condition. Otherwise, it may not work the way it should, which can result in unnecessary physical damage during an accident.
When the SRS airbag module is deployed, an airbag code will come up which may look different in various cars such as the “airbag off” text. An SRS airbag module reset may be necessary if the light is on but will always be necessary after an accident. The SRS airbag system computer will have crash codes or crash data known as hard codes stored in it. If the airbag code is related to the airbag’s deployment, you will need your airbag light reset. Other reasons for a lit airbag light, may be a result of issues with the seat belt system, the airbag, the computer, or associated wiring. Usually, it is because something may be interfering with the seat belt switch, giving off a potentially false warning. Other causes of the airbag light are due to the airbag being deactivated or even due to water damage. This may require you to get SRS module repair.
