Nope..Not Yet.. But wanted to ask, do I need to take it to the Dealership or I can take it to the repairshop nearby.. I have purchased this car today and the previous owner was saying that this light has come on only recently, when he changed the battery.. but I am not sure, if he is telling the truth or not.. Please let me know what could be the possible reason and how much should I expect to be the expanse, as he is agreed to pay the repair..

SRS is your supplement restraint system you should have scanned immediately. It could be a minor issue or a major issue. We have the ability to scan it for you. Did the previous owner disclose if the vehicle was ever in an accident?

I called the dealer and he said that It is going to cost 129$ for diagnostic... and repair would be more.. If it is just the scanning of the codes, why are they taking too much,,???

I am in Chandler, and the good mechanic that I got from this website, is asking me to come tomorrow.. moreover, somewhere I read over the internet, that jeffylube or Autozone does the scanning for free?

they can't scan the abs module so that would be a waste of time i believe
