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

Problem Description and Possible Solution

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.

SRS light is on and I have not spilled anything in the seat or on seat belts. Need to be a recall on this.
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.
