I own a 1999 Toyota Camry. it has been dealer maintained except for tires and my changing the oil and filter every 2500 miles. It has never been in an accident. It has 97,500 or so miles on it. No recent repairs except having the brakes checked and a tire rotation.
I was driving home from a doctor's appointment two days ago when the SRS warning light came on. When I arrived home I checked the manual to determine what the light was for. The next day I started the car the light remained on for several seconds. (another thread said this was a self check by the system.) The light did not come on when I was driving. Starting the engine today and driving produced the same result (no light during driving).
The other thread I referred to stated that the car had to be taken to a dealership because a special code reader was necessary to determine the problem. Given that the car is a 1999 does anyone know if the special code reader is still necessary?
Also is there something else that could cause such a problem such as a loose sensor or some other problem that would cause this intermitent behavior?
