When the SRS light is indicating, an error has been detected in the system and it has been disabled while the indicator turning on is to inform you of it.

If a scan toll had indicated that certain sensor is at fault, you would need to test and confirm the sensor or its wiring circuit is at fault and repair/replace as necessary to rectify the problem.

Thank you

When I turn the car off it sounds like the airbag is deflating, strange sound, so in US money how much would that cost to repair or replace

Airbag system would not emit any noise. The noise should be from something else, most likely related to vacuum and it couls be anything from the brake power booster to HVAC system.

The cost of repair for the SRS would depend on what is at fault. If you let me know the EXACT trouble code for the SRS indicating, I might be able to get more information on it.

Good to know, thank again. On the work sheet from the Toyota dealer check all they wrote was Airbag Sensor Assy, they said it was in the left door by the driver's seat.

I believe that it its the door air bag sensor.

It could be due to bad wiring contacts or broken wires. The sensor wire has to pass through the body to door wireharness and these are prone to internal breakages due to opening and closing the driver door over extended periods.

So is this all serious that I should get it all fixed right away, money is a bit tight right now, or can I drive it a bit longer, I dont want to do more damage. I dont understand what the braker power booster is or the HVAC is? My brakes work fine, the car actually runs good

You can continue to drive the vehicle without any problem however you must also be aware thet the air bag system is disabled and would not work until it is repaired.

As to the noise, it would be good to get some one to check if it is anything serious.
