Hello, My SRS dashboard light came on about 3 years ago and is still shining... A Honda/Acura mechanic used a diagnostic device and told me that one of the computers on the car was completely dead... The computer is about $486 and it is another $200 labor because the location of the computer is so far back into the inner front of the dashboard that the whole dashboard has to be removed to get to it. I don't know the exact part number of the computer, otherwise I would try to shop it on eBay. I will look for the part number and get back to you if you email me at:

I would like to know any updates you might get on this. What I was also told from the mechanic is that if that SRS light is on, the airbags will absolutely positively NOT deploy in a collision... Another thing that scares me is if I end up getting lucky enough to find that part on eBay at a reasonable price, and then I can install it, I am scared the airbags will deploy when I plug the new computer in... The mechanic said "I would disconnect the battery before you plug that in if I was you...". So I'm not sure exactly what all is involved and furthermore, I am scared to mess with it...

Sorry I don't have any better news for you, because of the complexity and price of the repair I've left my stinkin' light on... If I am able to resolve the issue in any way or have other details, I will get back to you. Do me a favor and email me to let me know what you find out and I can get that part number to you also once I find it.

In your 1999 Honda Civic 4 dr sedan after 71 thousand miles the SRS light came on and will not go off what caused this?

I am pretty sure this means "supplemetal restraint system" meaning airbag. ignore it at the peril of it not working when you may need it I just paid the Honda Service Dept. $723.65 (12/02/05) for parts and labor to replace the SRS Control Unit of my 1997 Civic LX. When the first SRS light came on, Honda replaced the battery saying low battery power could cause the light to come on, and if the light comes back the SRS (air bags) Control Unit need to be replaced. It came back after resetting several times. If your srs control unit is not defective, I think this site has a good solution. I wished I tried it first before bringing the car to Honda.
