- On your dash, you will see a light that either says Air Bag or SRS. SRS stands for “supplemental restraint system.” In some vehicles, you might also see an illustration of a person with an air bag deploying.
- In some vehicles, you might see a warning saying, “air bag deactivated,” or, “air bag off.”
- If your Air Bag Light is on, it could also indicate a problem with your seat belts.
- Your Air Bag or SRS Light might also come on if your vehicle was in an accident that activated the crash sensors in your car, but not to the point where the air bag was deployed. If that is the case, then you need to have your air bag reset
- Air bags may also fail to deploy if your car sustained serious water damage to the point where the sensors were corroded.
- A qualified mechanic can diagnose problems with your air bags, and determine why your Air Bag Light is coming on.
At Peters Creek Auto, we can diagnose why your Air Bag Light has come on. If it is a problem with a sensor, then we can replace the sensor. If your air bags need to be reset, we can do that for you as well. You should always assume that if your Air Bag Light has come on, your safety could be compromised, so get it checked out.
