DIY: SRS Codes and reading them.

Ok so I had an issue with SRS the light being on and couldn't find exact info anywhere. After finding it all from multiple places, I thought i'd compile it into a single post to help others out.


1st :: Try to reset your light, it may take 3-4 tries or more if your timing is off.
KSMatic - DIY : Reset SRS Light


IF Your light blinks 2x and comes right back on, here's how to pull the codes.

Step 1: Make sure the key is not in the ignition and then get a paperclip and fold it into a U shape

Step 2
: Plug it into ODBII Service Port 4 and Port 9

(above images courtesy of k-series.com)

Step 3: Insert key and turn ignition to Position II

Step 4: Watch the SRS and write down the codes. It will stay on for 6 seconds, then go off and the codes will then follow.


HOW TO READ CODES
SRS Codes consist of a main-code, and a sub-code.
EXAMPLE : 21-1 :: 21 is the main code, 1 is the subcode









Here are all the possible codes




Heres a video of codes i was getting so that you can get an idea on how to read them bettter. I had three codes in this video.
VIDEO
http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...90455763232641

CODES
15-1 :: Faulty OPDS unit or OPDS unit not initialized
22-1 :: Open or increased resistance in passenger's seat belt buckle tensioner
12-1 :: Open or increased resistance in front passenger's side airbag inflator

code600= after watching your video i counted the flashes, 10 long flashes and 1 quick one. According to the chart that was posted 10-1 means Seatbelt and seatbel buckle tensioners (and airbag(s)) deployed...

if i understand correctly that means that one or all of those airbags have been deployed before. have you been in an accident? or did you buy it this way..

btw, i'm just taking a guess i'm no expert

btw, for some reason, i always get passanger airbag off, mostly when i'm driving alone, i took it to the dealership but they tell me it's common usually means seat might have gotten wet but i know its not.

has this also happened to anyone before? i get it all the time

I orginally did the srs light reset. And it worked. For like 2 weeks. My srs light just came back on today, i had no luck reseting it. I pulled the codes.

My light flashed once, and than 9 times
and than
My light flashed 3 times fast, and 9 slow times.

Thats all it did. What codes are these 9-1 and 9-3??

I mean my car has never been in an accident, and ive never changed the seats of taken them out or anything. Someone helo me out please!

Excellent post, just fantastic....


Now how do we FIX our codes? Haha, I mean this REALLY is one of the better DIY threads; however, it leaves most of us with a "now what?" attitude.


I pulled 22-1 which is open/resistance to passenger seat belt. Car has been in an accident, but thank God that's the only code I saw pull through so kind of a relief no airbags appear to have been deployed, ha.


Anyway, yeah now what...

I got 22-1.

Now the car has NOT been in an accident, and the error came on. How can I fix this?

I've tried resetting it, it just comes back on.

I have the same problem... except I only have the 4-1 code. I've checked the connections on the tensioner as well as replacing it with another one... and I still get this SRS fault code..

Did you ever figure it out?

Thanks!
