SRS Light Due to Spilled Liquid on Buckle or Under Seat on Mercedes-Benz C230

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.

The dealer charged me $109 for an hour of labor to determine the seat belt was exposed to liquid and needed to be replaced. I opted to replace the belt latch myself for about $80.
