If you are getting '51-Internal fail of SRS unit ' for your 'SRS Light On' problem what does this mean?

A warning light that looks like this or says SRS should NEVER come onunless there is a fault in your vehicle's air bag system supplemental restraint system or SRS). You can drive the vehicle but the air bag(s) will NOT deploy should you be involved in an accident. You should have the problem diagnosed and repaired at your earliest convenience.

yes they but it on a scan tool and they should tell you what the problem is and what needs to be done.

SLS light may fail to start because of a faulty wire harness. It is important to visit a local repair shop if the problem persists.

User Avatar

if the codes are stored even with the light removed it will fail because of the stored code when the obd2 or mot If you take the light out you will fail MOT (mine just has). The light must work to pass MOT. If ABS light stays on then it will also fail. You need to fix the problem. (I have a 2000 323) It is not a sealed dash incidently.

Once you correct the problem the light will go off. Can be low of brake fluid, parking brake might be partially on, defective Master Cylinder, etc. Do not ignore this light as this can cause your brakes to fail.

if abs light is on, there is a problem in your brake system if the problem has already been repaired, disconnect battery for 5 minutes to cancel signal in computer. if problem has not been repaired, get it fixed otherwise signal and light will just keep coming back,not to mention your brakes will fail right when you need em most

fail : feiru to fail to go or to come : desokonau to fail to do : shiotosu , kakasu to fail in getting a job : abureru to fail : dekisokonau , shisokonau , shisonjiru to fail (e.g exam) : ochiru to fail to hear : kikimorasu to fail to notice : miotosu to fail in making : tsukurizokonau , tsukurisokonau , tsukurisonjiru

Need to specify the problem, anything that trips the engine light will cause it to fail, which could be a thousand different things to fix so it will pass

User Avatar

It is one because there is a problem with the ABS (automatic braking system). You need to have it checked. The brakes could possibly fail without warning.

User Avatar

The ABS light on a Jeep Grand Cherokee cannot be reset without fixing the problem that caused the light to come on. Trying to fix the light yourself could cause your car to fail inspections and operate with major mechanical issues.

User Avatar

They can if the brakes are out of adjustment or have a mechanical problem.

User Avatar

It means there is a problem with your braking system and should be serviced as soon as possible. Your brakes could fail at any time.

User Avatar

In NJ your car will fail inspection if the light is on. In fact, your car will fail inspection up to 200 miles after you have the car serviced due to a problem that resulted in the service engine light being on. I had the service engine light on because of a faulty gas cap. I had the car serviced and then a day later took it to inspection. The car failed because the computer had not reset itself. I was told to come back after driving the car 200 miles because it often takes that long for the computer to show that everything is working fine.

Either all brake light bulbs are bad, and yes it is common for all the bulbs to fail with in a day or two. Or the signal light switch has an internal problem.

User Avatar

Depends on what the problem was-usually when an issue occurs once it is only pending, the next time it triggers a hard fault (light) There is no point resetting if not fixed, if for a smog-it will fail due to reset.

To answer quickly with my poor English: because, for Francis Bacon, light is divine - Of course, god never can miss or fail.

The computer has detected a problem with the emissions controls. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Get this fixed, as it can cause other parts to fail, as in, the catalytic converter, O2 sensor.

Downloads do not fail on Mac OS X. Apple will be supplying the next version of Mac OS X as a download. Perhaps you have a problem with your connection or there is a problem with the source of the download.

User Avatar

Yeah, it can. If something is wrong with your emmision control system, your car can still fail emmisons, but the check engine light doesn't have to be on.

User Avatar

Yes. Va will pass your car with a check engine light. The inspection station will try to get you to figure out what is wrong with you car but they will not fail it. However, If your SRS light is on, the car will fail the inspection.
