    Srs

    So today I get into my car (97 sohc) and the SRS light is on, so can I figure out whats wrong by pulling the codes with a normal OBD2 scanner, or will that not work? If not how do I find out whats throwing the code.

    Some scanners don't support SRS/Airbag but worth a try. I'm assuming you only have the driver's airbag as it's a SOHC or do you have passenger airbag as well? Usually it's just the airbag but sometines the seatbelts can set it off and the sensors in the front bar. Can't remember what these things have LOL. Have you recently unplugged anything?

    It has both airbags, and I haven't messed with anything recently so I am thinking it is the seat belt. It doesn't like to go back into place, you have to feed it in. I have only heard of this problem a couple of times which is why I am suspicious that it is one of the airbags.

    Try disconnecting the battery for a minute or so as it will clear any codes and see if it comes back. If you do change the seatbelt do it while the battery is disconnected as it will throw the code again as soon as you unplug the seatbelt sensor.

    ^ what he said. My SRS light came on when my battery died and I couldn't figure out how to turn it off. There weren't any problems and I couldn't use a logger to figure out the problem. Fortunately, the light went away after a few days of normal driving. Disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and then hooking it back up ought to clear any memory that your srs computer has of a fault and it will not return unless there is a recurring problem.

    I remember a guy on here having something like this in his sig:
    Girl: "Your obsession with cars is like my obsession with shoes"
    Guy: "No its not, my cars aren't ugly"

    SRS light is not affected by seatbelts. SRS is for the supplemental restraint, aka the airbags, and the airbags alone. The seatbelts are in no way connected to the SRS computer or ECU.

    Wasn't sure about that one. I have had experience with other cars where this has happened. If the sensor in the seatbelt fails or is unplugged the airbag light comes on and must be cleared. Same with the sensors on the front bar if unplugged or faulty. So I guess the 3000GT/Stealth doesn't have these sensors?
