How to Reset the SRS Light on a Mercedes s430

Over the past month we’ve received several requests on how to reset the SRS light on a Mercedes s430. The answer to that question is that SRS lights require the manufactures (or equivalent) scan tool. Even if the fault is corrected, the light still has to be reset.

If you have a Mercedes Benz and need to have your SRS light reset, please stop and see the crew at Metric Wrench Billings. It doesn’t matter if you own a brand new Mercedes-Benz or an old clunker of a car, visiting the mechanic is kind of like visiting the dentist, it’s stressful.

We never know what they are going to find wrong with our car or how much they are going to charge. Fortunately for us, there are a number of things that we can do to eliminate the stress of visiting the mechanic.

Put aside money for auto repairs-it doesn’t matter what the make and model of your car is, eventually you’ll need to see a mechanic. And having a slush fund for auto repairs can alleviate stress; you don’t have to choose between paying other bills to squeeze in the cost of automotive repairs. The amount of money that you maintain in your account of course will be determined by the type of car that you drive. If you have a brand new Mercedes-Benz, for example, your parts will likely cost more than if you have an old clunker.

Follow the manufacturer’s scheduled maintenance guidelines. The guidelines for oil changes, tune ups and other scheduled maintenance procedures were created to assist you in helping your Mercedes-Benz last much, much longer. As well as providing the mechanics at Metric Wrench Billings with the opportunity look for potential problems in the future. They can fix many problems before they go any further to create bigger problems.

So if you need your SRS light reset, you need to have it done with the manufactures (or equivalent) scan tool, start a slush fund for automotive repairs and follow the manufacture’s guidelines for maintenance and you can not only avoid stress, but also potential problems in the future.
