Customer Question

Hi. On a 2003 SL600.
1. Was using compressor to check and inflate tyres yesterday. Only possible with ignition switched off - so possible link to battery drain.
Immediately on restarting - malfunction message:

"SRS Restraint System Visit Workshop."

Can I reset? Any advice?

2. Tyre valve has cross thread - or just damaged. Can not attach compressor fully. Any ideas how to cure?

Many thanks. John.

Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
The light likely set when the battery drained down some and after recharging the battery fully and driving a few miles it should reset on its own,if it does not disconnect the negative and positive battery cables for 10 minutes and retry. As for the tire valve once they are damaged they have to be replaced and can't be repaired .
