The Supplemental Restraint System, also known as the SRS, protects the driver as well as any passengers in the event of an accident. The airbag module has the important job of determining what needs to occur when since it is the brains of the system. For example, if the driver is speeding and then hits the brakes quickly to stop at a light, the SRS Module determines that the seat belts need to lock putting the driver or passenger firmly into their seat but that the airbags do not need to deploy. However, in a major accident like a vehicle being in a head on collision, the module will determine that the airbags need to get deployed as well as locking the seat belts in order to help protect the person in the seat.
When the SRS airbag module deployed, an airbag code will come up which may look different in various cars. This may be a diagram of a person with an airbag deployed or the text “air bag deactivated” or “airbag off”. An SRS airbag module reset may be necessary if the light is on and will always be necessary after an accident.
