Thanks for choosing JustAnswer.
My name is Vladimir.
This fault indicates that ID number or VIN stored in SRS control module (SDM) does not match to numbers stored in the BCM (body control module).
If you replaced the BCM or PCM modules, they have to be programmed for proper operation.
If you installed an used SDM module, you should install a new SDM module.
