SRS MIL Lights

Name: John Town: Uxbridge

From the DLVA blog common mistakes 2. Supplementary Restraint Systems SRS lampsWhen testing SRS MIL Malfunction Indicator Light lamps we are only looking to see if the lamp indicates if there is a fault with the system. If no lamp is present or it doesnt illuminate then it cant indicate a system fault, so it cant be failed. Some vehicles may also incorporate warning messages on dash board displays these are in addition to any MIL lamps and should not be used as a reason for rejection.Where passenger air bags are present it is also often possible to disarm them, or they may automatically disarm where there is little or no weight on the passenger seat. This may be accompanied by a lamp permanently on to highlight the airbag has been disarmed, this is not considered a SRS MIL, and therefore isnt a reason for rejection.
