SRS light on after accident

Asked by Feb 25, 2015 at 02:44 PM about the 2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 320 4MATIC AWD Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Someone crashed into my left rear.
Body shop repaired after sending to
Mercedes to find code. They said
they replaced L rear airbag because
SRS light was on. Mercedes shop
said error code said resistance
wireing containing component
R12/11 and shop told them not to
repair. Now R rear seatbelt will not
work. How can I tell if airbag was
replaced or not and would this have
anything to do with the seatbelt not
working now?

Yes it could. SRS is more than Air Bags. It has seat belt pre-tensioners that tighten up whenever same incident deploys air bags, The actually use a small explosive device to operate, and must be replaced.
