SRS Light Due to Damage from Liquid Spilled onto Passenger Seat on Mercedes-Benz E350

Water can damage the weight sensor in the front, passenger seat, causing the SRS (airbag) light to illuminate. There is an electrical component in the seat cushion susceptible to fluid damage. Any spills should be dried up immediately in order to try and prevent damage to the sensor.
