    Well resetting it has only determined that it is a real problem and not a ghost--in other words, the computer received the error input again from the defective circuit.


    So now it's a matter of determining which component in the SRS system is failing---probably one of the impact sensors and hopefully not the module that controls everything. Could be as simple as a side impact sensor or the impact sensor near the front bumper.

    Further diagnostics will be required. A trouble code doesn't tell you which component is bad, only which circuit or system is sending the distress signals. At this point, a technician has to follow a diagnostic 'tree' and come to some conclusion as to where the problem is.

    Working on an SRS system is generally not something for the do-it-yourselfer.

    Thank you for your help.

    If you could find out the actual # of the code that was extracted before the reset, I might be able to give you further information on the cause. But I couldn't be specific because there was no # mentioned.
