Please don't SHOUT, and add some details using the UserCP ^^^^.

It's not possible to diagnose SRS faults via a forum. Best thing for you to do initially is to get the fault codes read. It could be something to do with any front seat belt buckle switch, or an airbag sensor fault, but as it is a safety feature you should check it out asap.

like most guys said it cannot be 100% unless you check your error codes, but i had that same problem recently and when the shop read the fault codes it came back as i believe it was to much resitance or voltage..and the shop said something about installing a resistor for the airbag connector. the shop said alot of clk class cars do that and its a simple job. but that isnt the only possibilty it could be something else always better to get the fault codes check just incase it might be a biggeror smaller or different issue that might need urgent attention.

With SRS errors even if you fix the problem the light wont go out automatically. You will need to reset it with a STAR, iCarSoft etc. scanner.

Here's a list of the SRS codes:


B1010 states that the ignition squib for the left rear seat belt pretensioner has a short to ground. Remove the rear seat cushion and check the wiring for the squib. It should be a green connector that plugs into what looks like a metal pipe under the seatbelt latch. Check for any obvious wiring issues - cuts, chews, crimps, etc.
