SRS can due to many factors , airbag, faulty , Airbag Inflation issue, seat sensor , safety belt and many more

 

yours is the electrical board to the airbag module which is not a big issue, you may still continue driving without it but think of this.

Airbag is designed to save lives and reduce our impact and hitting the dashboard. Without it , the chance of not surviving the crash will be much higher.

Hi all

 

I got this on my W204 as well, for about a month already.

 

Can recommend where to check this out, other than C&C. I called them and they said it could be around $2k to replace the board.

 

Thanks

If I am not wrong you need reprogramming after changing any airbag. Reprogramming cost $300-800 depending on Workshop.

There is a guy Vincent Teo. He does most of the Merc reprogramming for the workshop. Vincent 96185133.

He can also run diagnostic and resetting on any made. His car boot is full of diagnostic kits.

Hi visit the site sponsor ws, ask them for solution and compare the quotes before proceed for repair. This is how I go about to get my car issues resolved. Dont just base on anyone recommendation. Do your own discretion.

yes.

 

1st thing 1st, to reset the SRS light.  most often than not, it will go away. (for this, a good workshop may not even charge you for this).

 

if it stays there, then may need further analysis. (if under warranty, can get C&C to resolve it, otherwise, if it irks you, then sort it out thru a decent replacement of parts or what).

 

Godspeed.
