1986 560sl: Where is the SRS Control module located..airbag

This answer was rated:

Where is the SRS Control module located on the 1986 560sl? The airbag was deployed after a minor front crash. I found a replacement airbag, but I understand that I will need to have the Control module reset.
Good evening,

The SRS control unit is located behind the ashtray in the center console.

The control unit is listed as N2/2 in the picture.


The control unit MUST BE REPLACED after an air bag deployment. Resetting a control unit is only possible on very new models.

Back in the 80's & 90's they were a one time use. So anytme after an accident it needed to be replaced.

That just about covers it but let me know if you need some more info.
