The Airbag system, also known as a supplementary restraint system (SRS) or supplemental inflatable restraint (SIR), is a safety system on modern automobiles that helps to protect the driver and most passengers in case of a collision.
The SRS system has numerous sensors, wiring and components, including seat belt pretensioners and the airbags themselves which for the most part are maintenance free. While failure of these sensors, components and the wiring is uncommon an illuminated “SRS” or “Airbag” light means a fault has been detected by the onboard computer system and as such the Airbag will not deploy properly or at all in the case of a collision.
If your vehicle’s “SRS” or “Airbag” light is on have your Airbag System diagnosed immediately to assure all passenger safety features function properly. Safety is our number one goal!
