Unhappy "SRS / Airbag light"

My SRS light has come on today and after a few restarts it remains on.
I have checked my Scangauge and there is no code showing.
I have checked the manual and it warns against fitting a non standard bullbar with the SRS.
My ARB Bar was fitted about 18 months ago and I fear the dealer may deny a warranty claim because of the Bullbar.
Any thoughts?

I'd be very surprised if the ECU hasn't thrown a fault code, The scangauge will only pickup generic fault codes. I dare say what ever fault will be mitsubishi specific.

The quickest way to diagnose it will be to visit a dealer and have them connected it to their MUTIII.

It could be something as simple as a connector has worked it way loose or your battery may be failing (dropped cells can throw odd-ball stuff like airbag lights) or it could be more serious and a sensor or module has failed and needs to be replaced.

You'll really only get a decent idea after visiting a dealer.


I'd be very surprised if warranty was denied based on an aftermarket bar..

I had the SRS light come on a few months ago. It turned out to be a connection issue with the side airbag. They checked all the connections and it was an easy fix after they found the bad one.

Good luck.

My SRS light has also been on for a few weeks. The dealer finally tracked it down to a faulty side air bag. It took him a couple of weeks to order one in and Ive got it booked next week to be replaced.

It apparently took them a while to track the fault down - around half a day.

It sounds as though SRS faults are quite common. Lucky we have the warranty.

Mine came on this morning - bad timing - its Friday and i am going away in the morning. Cant get the dealer to look at it till next week, so I might just see if I can check all the connections for side airbags. My sons car's airbag light came on and after a bit of fiddle farting around it turned out to be a loose connection under the seat, so hopefully this is the same deal... One thing though - will the airbag light go off if I find a loose connection, or does this need to get cleared by the dealer..

When mine came on the dealer said they used some grease in the connectors that makes the connections corrode. They already knew about the problem and cleand the passanger airbag connection. All good now.

Mine's been on 3 times over the past year. The stealer hasn't been able to fix it yet, just clear the codes. Latest "idea" is to replace the SRS computer, whatever that is...

I have decided to try clearing the light/code by disconnecting the battery but not sure if this will create other issues.
