SRS airbag system warning light


SRS airbag system warning light

A diagnostic system continually monitors the readiness of the seatbelt pretensioner while the vehicle is being driven. The seatbelt pretensioners share the control module with the airbag system. Therefore, if any malfunction occurs in a seatbelt pretensioner, the SRS airbag system warning light will illuminate. The SRS airbag system warning light will show normal system operation by illuminating for approximately 6 seconds when the ignition switch is turned to the “ON” position.

The following components are monitored by the indicator.

● Front sub sensor (right-hand side) ● Front sub sensor (left-hand side) ● Airbag control module (including impact sensors [all models] and rollover sensors [Outback])
● Frontal airbag module (driver’s side) ● Frontal airbag module (front passenger’s side) ● Center pillar impact sensor (right-hand side) ● Center pillar impact sensor (left-hand side) ● Front door impact sensor (right-hand side) ● Front door impact sensor (left-hand side) ● Side airbag module (driver’s side) ● Side airbag module (front passenger’s side) ● Rear wheel house impact sensor (righthand side) ● Rear wheel house impact sensor (lefthand side) ● Curtain airbag module (right-hand side) ● Curtain airbag module (left-hand side) ● Seatbelt pretensioner (driver’s side) ● Seatbelt pretensioner (front passenger’s side) ● Seatbelt buckle switch (front passenger’s side) ● Front passenger’s occupant detection system weight sensor ● Front passenger’s occupant detection control module ● Front passenger’s frontal airbag ON and OFF indicator ● All related wiring

WARNING

If the warning light exhibits any of the following conditions, there may be a malfunction in the seatbelt pretensioners and/or SRS airbag system. Immediately take your vehicle to your nearest SUBARU dealer to have the system checked. Unless checked and properly repaired, the seatbelt pretensioners and/or SRS airbags will operate improperly (e.g. SRS airbags may inflate in a very minor collision or not inflate in a severe collision), which may increase the risk of injury.

● Flashing or flickering of the warning light

● No illumination of the warning light when the ignition switch is first turned to the “ON” position

● Continuous illumination of the warning light

● Illumination of the warning light while driving
