After taking out the fuel pump and then reinstalling it in my car, the SRS light on the dash was blinking all the time. As of this morning, it now just stays solid all the time. Could anybody tell me what that light is indicating (I assume it has something to do with the airbag) and how to get it turned off.
Thanks.

I know this is an old topic...but the search engine on this site doesn't allow you to search on words of less than 4 letters (e.g., "SRS"). I'm interested in this response too, so whoever can lend some knowledge, it would be appreciated.

No squeaks or rattles... unreal!

In response to the last two posts:
I couldn't search SRS either so that is why I made this post.

There is a seperate seat belt light, which you are probably aware of (I'm just stating the obvious) , and it goes off when I put my seat belt on. The SRS light just stays on, though it was blinking, starting on Sunday when I put my fuel pump back in, and through Monday. This morning it stopped blinking and just stayed on.

Search for SRS* instead of SRS. The star is a wildcard, so any word containing SRS will be included, and it passes the 4 letter rule.

EDIT: Well shit, it used to work. nevermind- I don't know what I am talking about. ghead

The SRS light will come on as you've described if you need part of the seatbelt system replaced. I jsut had both seat belt recepticles replaced by BMW, and that took care of the problem. NOT CHEAP! I don't think your problem has anything to do with the fuel pump work, but I'm new to BMW's, so some of the non-noobers might answer. But I'm pretty sure I'm right. Have a non BMW dealer replace it.

the SRS system is totally seperate from the fuel system if you have an SRS light it is something SRS related...possibly (I'd say more than likely a bad seat belt switch) but deffinatly something to have looked at. It's your safety, I would want to know that system would be there for me if I needed it to be.
