Greetings from the home of the Steelers and Penquins. I bought a 2008 SLK a few years back. 24000 miles and in great shape. I'm looking to take care of a SRS notification. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Welcome from Eureka, IL! My first try would be to hook up an ODBII scanner and reset all the codes. Although this probably won't work on the SRS codes. From what I'm told, that's usually a dealer diagnostic tool. I've heard disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes or so then reconnecting will sometimes clear these codes. But if there is an underlying issue with a sensor then it will undoubtedly remain. Air bags are tricky. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and pay the dealer. Good luck!

Hi and welcome from central Florida.

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.

Welcome from New York.

I had the SRS message as well, it turned out that the seat belt sensor was bad. Best to go to a mechanic for SRS issues.
