What Does an Airbag Warning Light Mean?

An airbag warning is depicted by a tiny person, wearing his seat belt, with a circle in front of his face. We assume that the circle is an artist rendition of an airbag, but we digress. If the airbag light comes on in your new Toyota Camry or Corolla, it means your on-board diagnostics system has determined the airbags may not deploy in the event of a collision. It isn’t a guarantee that they won’t work, but it’s not worth testing.

What to do with SRS Warning

If you are face to face with an airbag warning light, we highly recommend getting it fixed as soon as possible. The issue will not affect your engine or ability to drive your car, but what’s the point of having a supplemental restraint system in your car if it doesn’t work? Who knows what can happen. A trip to the service center is cheaper than a hospital bill anyway. You don’t have to get a cab home, but it would be smart to schedule an appointment right away. Your Camry will thank you for it.

What not to do

There are articles online that give directions on how to reset or turn off an airbag warning light. DO NOT DO THIS! This will cause complications when you finally do bring your car in because the technicians will not be able to pin point the issue as fast. You also shouldn’t ignore your airbag light. The longer you wait, the more likely it is that your airbags are faulty.
