1989 300SE. 84K miles.
As I drove down to San Diego from S.F.
I noticed my SRS light on the dash
flickering but then it went off.
Outside temperature was 92 Deg.
Faren. On the way back home, the light bagan
to flicker and finally stayed on for the duration of the trip. Outside temp
92-99 Deg Faren. Average speed
70 MPH using cruise control and A/C.
Back in cool San Fran. 58 Deg. Faren.
The SRS light did not appear on dash
beside the momentary check when
ignition is turned on.
Did the external temp. induce this
quirk ? All is normal now.
P.S. What is the standard shop hours for
removal and replacement of the oil pan
for this car ?
Thank you.

Many times as the SRS contacts at the steering wheel get old & are worn this will happen, also too high or low voltage supply can cause this to happen. Have the system checked! When the light is on the system is OFF. Very simple old style scan tool can read this system (analog-pulse).

The oil pan reseal should take 3-4 hrs.
