Hey all, I have a problem with my EF, it won't clear the SRS codes, this has only started after my battery died on the weekend, I thought that It would be okay, though it blew the SRS system fuse after a new battery was installed and so I gave it a code clear using the method on the forums, but it didn't beep as the instructions say and still throws the code for system voltage low and then blows the fuse, even a proper scan tool hasn't cleared the code and still blows the fuse, and I would like to keep the SRS system working.

Any advice or further questions are welcome

Air bag module shorts internally and blows fuse continually - module needs replacing -up high behind dash above accelerator pedal pia to get to so chase a replacement first

Thanks, TedW, I already have a spare air bag module off my parts car, but it had the passenger side airbag as well, would my harness be OK with it or do I have to find a drivers only module?

Hey all, I have gotten around to fitting the replacement air bag module, I followed the instructions from my workshop manual, but its still throwing a low battery code but isn't blowing the fuse now, what should I be looking for now?
Any advice is appreciated
