As with all faults correct diagnosis is key to a successful repair. With an SRS Airbag system this is never truer. Whilst the SRS system can save your life, an faulty system could be putting you in greater danger of injury!
Our expertise combined with a vast array of equipment and test rigs enables us to diagnose SRS faults correctly. In many cases we can rectify a fault whilst improving the specification to prevent future faults.
Most modern cars have a seat belt sensor, this allows the SRS system to identify that the seat belt is in use and confirm that someone is in the seat. During collision, a charge within the belt buckle applies tension to the seat belt itself, holding you securely.
Seat occupancy sensors also detect someone sitting in the front seats, these are common to fail and will result in an SRS warning light. We can repair these systems or if requested we can also code the sensor out.
MOT Regulations can mean that an SRS warning light on the dash is a failure issue.
In most cases we can reset the controlling ECU to clear any crash or fault data.
