It could be the alternater.

AnswerSome cars have a safety switch that shuts the engine off when the oilpressure is to low, but if those lights came on when the car stalled it might be because the lights on the instrument panel that turns on when you start the car usually turns on when it stalls.

You might be able to just disconnect the batery terminals, both of them, for a few mintues. This will probably work, but as soon as the computer relearns, it will set the light again if the problem is still present. Also a mechanic told me to disconnect the battery as decribed above and then turn on headlight switch and leave in the on position for 5 min. Then hook up Battery and start car the light should be off. Keep in mind if you don't fix the problem first the computer will trigger the light again.

Try for free downloads of Honda Service Manuals and Diagrams.How to keep SRS light off:In my case it was the battery: Battery was old. Take it to the car shop and have it tested under a load. Indicator might show blue = good battery but it still might be bad. Changed my battery out, reset the SRS light using the jumper wire method seen on the web and this fixed the problem. SRS light came on due to irregular voltage from bad battery. It was time to change out the battery anyways. Noticed map lights and headlight flickering during idle = bad battery or alternator. SRS light is still off on my car.
