RE: SRS light

it's the SRS(Supplemental Restraint System) Malfunction Indicator Light(MIL). go to someone that can read the fault codes for you. that's the best thing you could do.

RE: SRS light

I have the same light on my dash SRS, it usually has something to do with your airbags,seatbelts,or seats but most likley airbags need to be checked

RE: SRS light

yeah my light comes on when I start the car and maybe after a minute or minute and a half it goes away. It's difinately something with the seatbelts, airbags etc indicator. It might be the sensors failing. I wouldnt consider that indicator just a big deal on the air bags, but just take it to get a full diag at a local benz specialist.

I own an MB shop in Naperville, Il. I would be happy to diagnose the SRS lt for you, if you live in the Chicago area. Gus

RE: SRS light

As said previously ,this is the secondary restraint system (airbags;seatbelt pretensioners)warning light.
If it goes out after 2minutes there is a non critical fault and the system will still be operative but codes should be read and the system cleared at the earliest opportunity.
If the light remains on after 2minutes the system may be inopperative and should be repaired urgently.
