The SRS default appears on the screen of my E270 cdi Avante garde intermittently telling me to go to the workshop. How can I trace the fault without going to the garage?

Asked by May 02, 2012 at 04:15 PM about the 2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the seat belts and the airbags have never been deployed
but this SRS default has been coming on and off for months now.  Car has passed MOT and has no other
faults that I am aware of.  Any help would be great !
Thanks Dawn x
