    The SRS light will need a reset tool to turn off.

    First though you need to find out what triggered the SRS light. In most cases its the pyrotechnic tensioner wire needs to be cleaned and reset. Actually all of the seat wires should be cleaned with Deoxit and reseated. Peake makes a SRS code reader/reset tool for around $140. You might find someone local to you who has one and can help you out.

    If you don't have an SRS tool, I'll be in Pasadena mid-June.

    My airbag light came on about 2 years ago. I bought the Peake code reader and reset the light without doing anything else, and the light hasn't come back on since. So you might want to try that before pulling apart and cleaning all the connections, which seems like it could create other problems.

    I'm on my way down in the morning. I've got East Bay mobile number, I'll call sometime on the way. James is doing well, he and Elizabeth had their first child & my first grand-daughter last month.

    I guess there is a new Z3r in the crowd, Annabelle.

    Hey Steve,

    Congratulation on your new grand-daughter! Glad to hear James and Bettsey are both well.

    East Bay is still my mobile number. I'll be at Cal-Speedway (Fontana) tomorrow for the Formula SAE event. It'll be over between 1-2pm, then I could head West and meet you in Pasadena.
