Yet his system in question is either identical, or twin.

based on your responses, I will be getting a second opinion before shelling out $3000.

I'll keep you updated, but it will be at least 2 weeks

Arcticdweller- I owe you a beer. Tell me what a Molson goes for up there and I will send you a check.

I took your advice today and got a second opinion.
It is basically what you called- something wrong with the driver's side airbag, which I was surprised to learn is inside the driver's seat. They said the SRS control unit works fine. They reset the error codes (apparently the first person did not do this correctly) and said to come back if the warning comes back on, at which time they will have to take the seat apart.

Very surprised that the first mechanic was so incompetent, she has been there 20 years with a great reputation. She is in a very wealthy village and I always see very high level Mercedes there- go figure. Someone on this topic says she may be faking the German accent
