    Last week the Steering Rod lower UJ went pair shaped.
    The steering wheel spun and I knew immediately that the Air Bag ribbon within the steering wheel got knact - I heard it.

    So I fixed the UJ - steering perfect but the SRS light is now on all the time.

    Simple question - is it an easy fix or should I just live with the light on

    Is a V8 disco 1

    MOT failure these days.
    It's supposed to come on and go off as you start up.

    that could happen every time you turn ignition on etc,i think it says so in manual and wait a while ,but i never bother ,there is some screws holding it from the rear

    I replaced mine a while back, i was pretty worried about the airbag, i did disconnect battery, and made sure i didnt get any static lol yes i was that worried! its still got the SRS light on is it most likely a case of getting it plugged into a computer and fault cleared or something more ?

    I've got the same issue. I saw on another thread somewhere that the srs light could be cleared by turning ignition on and disconnecting battery within 8 seconds. Not sure about that ,haven't changed my rotary coupling yet.

    They made it sound like it was done leaving the ignition on. It's completely un-verified though!
