MG MGF Technical - SRS light
|Hi all, my SRS light came on and stayed on all the way home and this morning did not come on. Is it a lose connection somwhere or somthing more serious. I really dont want the airbag to go off as im driving.|
Check the connections to the seat belts underneath the seats. You may find that one of these has been trapped when you moved a seat and is causing your problem. Two wires into a connector.
|and as a BTW - if the light is on then it goes into fail-safe and wont 'go off' even when you want it to.|
|Quite a common problem, at Bruce says either the seatbelt tensioner or the rotary coupler on the steering wheel.|
My car has had this intermittent problem for 4 years. It doesn't seem to be a problem, but then, I've not hit anything yet....
|Thanks all. i'll have a look latter.|
|After cleaning and refitting the connections under the seats several times, I finally threw money at it and got the rotary coupler changed. Problem solved!|
Disconnect the battery first and leave the car for a FULL 10 minutes before doing anything on the SRS system. It has a battery backup which takes this time to discharge and if there is any residual current in the wiring there is a risk of an accidental firing.
After the 10 minutes are up it should be safe to work on.
