Default Re: 99 Saturn SL1 Airbag Module Reset SRS ECU Help!

You're attempting to make repairs away from recommended procedures set forth in service manuals so this leaves room for doubt about how successful anyone trying a diy repair. Search for problems with other members repairing theirs within these forums. Some are successful, others are not. Failure to follow thru with the list does result in the SIR system unable to operate with the airbag indicator staying ON, telling you repairs are not done correctly. The sdm is the technical term for the module sitting in the console. Others have tried undeployed airbag components from donor cars but again you should search threads before deciding on what to buy. Worse case scenario is nothing works with the airbag light still ON, best case is full restoration with the airbag light turning on and then off when turning on ignition. The only indication of the airbag system working is the indicator; on means its performing its own power up self tests and if everything is operating the light turns off with the SIR system enabled, on standby.
