I have a 06. Just changed the steering rack. Went to go test drive it and the SRS light is on. How do I turn it off.

My guess would be that you cycled the key on when the steering wheel air bag was disconnected.

That sets a DTC for the Safety Restraint System. Unfortunately for DIY repair, even after all is returned to normal operation, that code cannot be reset using a typical generic OBDII scan tool. You will need a Sprinter specific scan tool to access the SRS module to reset. A dealership scan tool, DRBIII, DAD, Snap-on with correct card and cables, or other higher level scan tool is needed.

Whoa there soldier!
Did you centralize the steering wheel before dis-assembly & install?
I use bungee chords to hold it in place!
Some use the driver's seat belt wrapped around the wheel and plugged into the clasp.

It is essential to have the column and stg wheel centralized before dis-assembly AND never turn it in any measurable degree since it can seriously mess up the column connector electronics and the calibration of the directional stability system.
As Vic has pointed out its a Sprinter specific scan tool job now to trace the faults.
