    Sorry to say it will not pass with the SRS lamp glowing under the new rules (I am pretty sure of that) its normally a loose connection under the passenger seat, but it will need STAR to be sure and turn the lamp off when fixed

    Hi,
    My AMG passed the MOT in the last few weeks with the SRS light on, I to was worried about it failling because of it, and as Alex and Carl says it is,nt "YET" testable.

    That's really interesting as the chap who MOT's our cars said he would fail the wife's mini on the SRS light (it was due a test the week after we had it valeted and they knocked the connector).

    I got the kit and reset it before putting it in (was going to fix it anyway but held off on the MOT).

    I shall be having words with him next time :)
