ok, SRS light on, your mechanic is an wrong. If you have any electronic devices in or around your passenger seat, this will set the srs light. should be able to clear codes by re-flashing srs unit or re-initialize the system. if your vehicle has not been in an accident, it is almost certain there is nothing wrong with the srs unit itself. im not saying it couldn't happen, just very unlikely.

My mechanic has pulled the codes and it indicated a new SRS computer is required. Since it was $400 he tried something. He hooked the PGM hand-held computer to the car and re-booted the SRS computer. It worked for 6 months and then it came back on. Another reboot and 2 weeks later it's on again. I don't want to part with the $400+ but I trust he's on the money when he says it needs to be replaced. I am going to look into one more thing with the seat sensor first. I have 157,000 on my 96 Odyssey.

I admire the simplistic logic of the "pulling out the bulb" solution. However, it should be noted that until you reset the code, your airbag will NOT deploy. So, bite the bullet and pay for the code to be reset, or find out how to do it yourself from some motorhead website. It involves jumping out some pins under your dash.

While I am a avid DIYer, Airbag systems are best left to the Pros. That being said, there is a lithium battery inside the airbag computer. For $400, I would look for faulty/cracked solder connections inside the airbag computer and test the little $4 battery. On the Accord there are three impact sensors, one in each floorboard and one in the computer itself (bags wont fire unless two out of three have been tripped). Get the factory service manual (www.helminc.com)and observe ALL safety precautions regarding putting safety jumpers on airbag connectors,etc. Airbag inflators contain rocket fuel and the passenger bag will probably break the windscreen when it fires....

Since the SRS control unit is a computer, it may be sensitive to things like a faulty alternator/voltage regulator, high power radio transmitters, alien spacecraft, etc.

the absolutely first question to ask is if anybody has done any electrical work on the car (aftermarket stereo, alarm, etc). Also, has the car gotten wet inside (flood).

When that light is on, the airbags may NOT deploy in a crash. FIX IT!!! Pulling the bulb out means now the light is not on but the AIRBAGS MAY NOT DEPLOY!

SRS stands for (Supplemental Restraint System) or in other words the Air Bags. If the light is on then there is a problem with the SRS. Repairing this system is NOT a DIY repair as it can be hazardous for a novice to work on this system. Let your Honda dealer diagnosis and repair the problem.

The SRS (supplemental restraint system) is your airbag system. The the should light up when you start your car and go away after a few seconds. If it stays on, there is a problem with the system. You should probably take it to a certified Honda mechanic or a Honda dealership

The SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) light is on because the SRS module detected a fault. Until the fault is repaired the light will remain on. Once the repair is correctly done the SRS light will reset itself.As long as the SRS light is on the SRS will not function if you should need it.

Take it to your local Honda dealer for service. Something is wrong with the air bag system or the SRS light would not be on. They will reset the light after the repair. This is not a DIY repair.

The SRS light refers to the airbag. Take the car down to autozone, or your local mechanic and have them plug it in and read the trouble codes. Then they can tell you what exactly is wrong with it.

The SRS lights says on when then is a problem with your air bag system. You need to take your Honda Accord into a service center to get it serviced.

This will depend on what the problem is that set the light in the first place. You are not paying to reset the light you are paying to have the problem repaired and that can be many things.

You can reset a 2005 Honda CR-V SRS light by disconnecting the battery. Leave it disconnected for 10 minutes before hooking it back up.

If the SRS light comes on then you have a problem with the air bag system. If you do not have a professional repair the system the light will just come back on.

SRS stands for Supplemental Restraint System or in laymen's terms, Air Bag System. If the light stays on then there is a problem with the system. It is dangerous to attempt to work on this system, so take it to a professional.

SRS is Safety Restraint System. So perhaps a seatbelt is unbuckled in an occupied seat, or there's a malfunction somewhere in the SRS system.
