RE: SRS malfunction
Well...the damnedest thing happened to me today. The SRS warning in my car came on and STAYED on. The strangest thing was that I was driving all over Southern California today on business. Then, after my last meeting of the day, I got in the car, started to drive it, and about 3 minutes into the drive, this warning comes on and won't go off when I cycle the key.
The car goes in to the dealer tommorow to get fixed. They just finished installing a phone kit in my car and I wonder if maybe, during the process, they hit one of the wiring connections making it get loose, and it finally detected a fault later in the day. I hope the fix is simple and will require only one trip to the dealership.
Of course, I suspect, like with many problems, this one might not show up when I take it to the dealership tommorow, so I made sure to photograph it today so they don't think I am crazy. One of the techs at the shop swears that all MB vehicles have built in sensor that uses the GPS system to detect when they are at an MB dealership and insures that any problems in the car are temporarily non-evident while the car remains within a 2 mile radius of the dealership, only to show up again later when you are back at your home or office.

Here's a pic of what this warning looks like. Hopefully you will never get to see this in your vehicle:
