Hopefully i can help..


The SRS " Supplementary Restraint System " is part of the Airbag system - if the SRS is on continually - then it will most likly mean there is a fault present or has been picked up somewhere in the system thats needs attention - and this can only be done using a suitable diagnostic machine to ascertain where excatly the fualt is - or the airbag system may simply not work if in the even of an accident - the ideal way usually with such systems as those, before you pull any main fuse is to find out what part of the system is actually faulty as above and take measures to rectify it properly - sometimes it can be dodgy/loose plug,connectors that may of come loose or wiring fault/problem noticable by yellow or black & yellow insulation / airbag spiral cable / one of the two front airbags or the seat pretensioners - but the best way is to actually have it diagnosed first to see where you need to start or what will likly need replaced - As far as MOT Airbags are not (currently) part of the MOT / the only warning light on continually it can fail on is the ABS...
