If the real time data show everything working correctly, then my suggestion is to shut the car down and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then touch the battery cables together for about 30 seconds to drain the power from the rest of the modules.

Note, when you touch the battery cables together, your batter is disconnected!! Just to make sure it is clear what you are doing.

Just some history.

How long have you owned the car?

Have you always had the SRS light on? m

Do you think the SRS module is original?

Do you think any of he airbags have ever been deployed??

You may need to pull your module and send it to one of the online airbag controller reset companies?? They usually charge about $60-$80 as I recall to reset any crash data that the module may have recorded??

Also make sure your battery is good as well.
