SRS Airbag Module Reset
All vehicles that were manufactured after 1996 for the U.S. market contain the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). This system protects the driver as well as any passengers in the event of an accident. The airbag module is the brains of this system. It has the important job of determining what needs to occur when. The following are a couple examples of what the module would do in a specific situation. In the event a driver slams on the brakes quickly, the SRS Module determines that the seat belts need to lock putting the driver or passenger firmly into their seat but that the airbags do not need to deploy necessarily. However, in a major accident like a collision, it is likely that the Airbags deployed along with locking the seat belts are necessary in order to help protect the person in the seat.
When the SRS airbag module deployed, an airbag code will come up which may look different in various cars. This may be a diagram of a person with an airbag deployed or the text “air bag deactivated” or “airbag off”. Every time the Airbags deployed, you will need to get the SRS airbag module reset.
