actually when a srs light comes on a fault is stored in the module and the module disables the affected circuit, so there is no worry about safety, BUT keep in mind that the disabled circuit will not activate the airbag so do drive a little extra carefully. if you can tell me your model i can give you the possible cause, due to highest repair problems. hope this helps.

Ok most common cause is just a seat belt buckle on the drivers side The air bag will still work but the seat belt emergency retractor will not. There is a cable on the seat belt buckle that will tighten the seat belt if in a accident. That is the common issue. Hope this information helps. Keep in mind then when you rate it does not end our conversation. you can still return here to me for follow up information if needed, Lou.
