Model Years Affected: 1995, 1998, 2006, 2007

Average Mileage: 89,900 mi (82,000 mi - 97,800 mi)


The SRS (airbag) light can come on if liquids are spilled into the seat belt buckles, or if the liquid pools underneath the seat and gets into the electrical connector for the seat belt pretensioner. Damaged components will require replacement to restore proper airbag operation.

    Dealer and independent mechanic said that the fix is very costly and they dont recommend it. They also say that even after the fix (new sensor, new wiring) there are no guarantees that the SRS light wont come on. And I thought Mercedes Benzs were cars that last. Not even 100,000 miles on the car.
