SRS light on can I safely jump the car

Asked by May 22, 2017 at 10:57 AM about the 2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class GLK 350

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

battery has been being  drained last 3 days, now SRS light came on last
night using spare key only, after days in garage car has not started.
Mechanic did diagnostic few days ago said I had low voltage problems -
said battery was good.  Car started and ran 2 days now car won't start at
all.  I think Fuse in SAM Module is bad or  is it seat belt module problem
also? Is it safe to jump start car?

Yes, it's safe to jump start it. The SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) light is the airbag system warning light. If it's on steady or blinking constantly the airbags have been disabled because the computer has detected a problem within the system. The airbags will NOT deploy, even in a collision. HTH. -Jim
