Default SRS light doesn't come on?

during startup, the SRS and passenger side airbag lights don't come on.

ABS does illuminate then turn off as expectedů thoughts?

Sensor(s) out. I know that my belt receptor had to be replaced this past year because of the SRS not reading things properly. It wasn't cheap.

Wouldn't the airbag light come on if there was a critical fault?

i figured it would be on if a fault was reading…

Im gonna pull the cluster and run through the FSM procedures for checking that. I haven't pulled any of the SRS codes yet either…

well it does come on, but you can't see it when it has tape over the cluster light.

now that I can see it, I am going to trouble shoot the actual SRS system.

it was been in an accident before… so I am not surprised…

You'll have to google it, but there's a yellow plug in the under dash fuse box. Short those wires to each other and the SRS light will give you a flashing code to help you track down the issue.

the srs reset didn't work, so I pulled the codes, but not having luck reading the flashes

video of light flashes

i feel like its a 15-7? (the 15 seem right, but the 7 doesn't.)

I only see 15-1, 15-2, 15-3 codes listed in diagnostic charts…?
any one with more experience able to help decipher the code(s)

Default Re: SRS light doesn't come on?

after looking again it looks like perhaps its:

15-1 Faulty OPDS unit or OPDS system not initialized
7-2 Internal failure of SRS unit

got the SRS computer in and cleared the 7-2 code (biggest pain in the *** was disconnecting all the airbag sensors before removing the old computer – don't want to chance it when explosives are involved)

orders a OPDS unit for the passenger seat to see if I Can get the 15-1 code to clear out…

on a side note I picked up a Zurick zr-13 obd2 reader with ABS and SRS support from harbor freight, it was 50 bucks off and I can use it to help with his, and my other cars!

Grabbed the OPDS computer for $50, but ended up clearing all the codes and getting it initialized without having to install the new part.

I'm glad to report the SRS system is back to factory ready. Thanks guys!

Sometimes bad sensors also trip bad module codes, glad you got it sorted
