Safety Restraint System SRS is now an MOT failure and could simply be a connection problem or control module fault?
SRS stands for Safety Restraint System SRS. For the reasons that it is commonly referring to either a vehicle’s Airbag or seat belt pretensioner.
An airbag is a vehicle safety device. Its an occupant restraint system consisting of a flexible fabric envelope or cushion. Its designed to inflate rapidly during a vehicle collision. Therefore its purpose is to cushion occupants during a crash. It provides protection to their bodies when they strike interior objects such as the steering wheel or a window.
Most modern vehicles contain multiple airbag modules in various side and frontal locations. The sensors deploy the airbags in impact zones at variable rates based on the type, angle and severity of impact.
The airbag is designed to only inflate in moderate to severe frontal crashes.
