    I have a 99 3.2 TL. Was in an accident, so I replaced the blown airbags and the airbag module with a used set from another 99 TL. All connectors fit right, but the srs light is still on. (i did disconnect the battery completely). What could be the problem?

A shop has to scan the car for codes to find out which airbag is tripping the light, and from there the diagnosis can be made. It could be a loose wire, or a damaged connector, or a dead airbag control module. If your car has side bags mounted in the seats, it's possible that it has the same problem that my Audi has - on my car, moving the seat too far back can strain the under-seat connector just enough to trip the airbag light, which then has to be reset with a computer scan tool. What I did in my car was to identify the offending bag (the driver's seat in my case) and then I zip-tied the connector tightly to hold it together, and turned off the light, and the problem has yet to come back. If you do investigate this on your own, all airbag connectors (by law) are yellow - if you find a yellow connector, it's an airbag - no other connectors are yellow. Before touching it, touch the frame of the car for a few seconds to discharge any static electricity in your body - you don't want to run even the slightest risk of blowing the airbag accidentally.

You can't reset it, the light will clear/ turn off when the problem with air bag system is repaired, right now the system has been disabled by the control module, SRS stands for supplemental restraint system, or air bags for short.

SOURCE: seat belts locked retracted, SRS light is on

The SRS system involves explosive devices, for some reason they seem to have been set off in your case. Maybe I minor collision or a crash sensor malfunction caused it.

Only qualified professionals may work with these systems, diagnosing and replacing components. This is one of the things that are definitely off limits for DIY-ers.

Resetting air bag light on a 2009 acura tl


First you need the SRS System Diagnosed for
problems

That is why any check light comes on

Assuming you had the car repaired,then the shop
should have turn off the light, as well as a though
road test.

There is no resetting or turning off of ANY MIL Lamps,
as you just remove what data is stored & needed to
repair any vehicle.

If the codes are cleared, they will come back along with
the light
To see if the light will return or the problem wasn't an
issue is a waste of time & lack of system knowledge

Accept the fact that at least once a year with todays
technology,you will have check lights & expensive repairs
That is here to stay forever

Reset srs light


Well basically all Honda/Acura because the system sometimes "hiccups" and causing codes to trip the SRS light.

DISCLAIMER: Please do this at your own risk, i am not responsible for any damages that you may cause by doing this SRS DIY reset. If you do not trust yourself, please take the car to Acura Dealership and have them reset it for you, Warranty will normally cover for reset at FREE of charge. Try this DIY at your own risk,

Note: If your airbag deployed or seats has been removed or anything that may have triggered the SRS, this DIY will not work for you. All you will get is two flashes or more and the light will remain on.


Tools Material Needed:
- Standard Paperclip (or wire)
- Maybe flash light (night job)

Time:
- 1 to 5 minutes

First make sure your key is out of the ignition.

Step 1:
You can use two options in this step to use to make two contact connect together:

Paper Clip, you can use the paperclip and bend it out to where both ends are next to each other so it can be put in to two pins.

Yes a scan must be done and it will not cost much.
