AIRBAG SYSTEM SRS Warning Light Remains ON

DTC Code DTC Name
SRS Warning Light Remains ON

DESCRIPTION

The SRS warning light is located in the combination meter.

When the SRS is normal, the SRS warning light comes on for approximately 6 seconds after the engine switch is turned from off to on (IG), and then goes off automatically.

If there is a malfunction in the SRS, the SRS warning light comes on to inform the driver of a problem.

When terminals TC and CG of the DLC3 are connected, DTCs are output by the blinking of the SRS warning light.

The SRS is equipped with a voltage-increase circuit (DC-DC converter) in the center airbag sensor in case the source voltage drops.

When the battery voltage drops, the voltage-increase circuit (DC-DC converter) functions to increase the voltage of the SRS to normal voltage.

A malfunction in this circuit is not recorded in the center airbag sensor. The SRS warning light automatically goes off when the source voltage returns to normal.

The signal to illuminate the SRS warning light is transmitted from the center airbag sensor to the combination meter through the CAN communication system.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note:
  • After turning the engine switch off, waiting time may be required before disconnecting the cable from the battery terminal. Therefore, make sure to read the disconnecting the cable from the battery terminal notice before proceeding with work (Click here).

  • When disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal while performing repairs, some systems need to be initialized after the cable is reconnected (Click here).

  6. CHECK SRS WARNING LIGHT (SHORT TO GROUND)

    1. Turn the engine switch off.

    2. Disconnect the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal, and wait for at least 90 seconds.

    3. Connect the connector to the combination meter.

    4. Connect the cable to the negative (-) battery terminal, and wait for at least 2 seconds.

    5. Turn the engine switch on (IG).

    6. Check the SRS warning light condition.

      Note:

      Make sure that nobody is in the vehicle.

      OK

      After the primary check period, the SRS warning light goes off for approximately 10 seconds and then remains on.
