Re: SRS INDICATOR LIGHT
The SRS light refers to your airbags. You can try reseting the light by going to the webpage that I will give you. If it comes back on after you reset it then there is a problem with your SRS system and you will need to have it diagnosed as your airbags will not function when the light is on. Here is the website:

Hello! when the light comes on it means the air beg system has a fsult and, in an accident, the bags will not deploy...very unsafe situation...Typically, one or more of these DTCs will be set: SRS DTC 15-1 (faulty
OPDS unit or OPDS not initialized)... SRS DTC 15-2 (faulty side airbag
indicator circuit)... SRS DTC 15-3 (faulty OPDS sensor)...To ensure
continued reliability with the OPDS: American Honda is extending the
warranty on the OPDS unit and the OPDS sensor to 10 years or150,000
miles, whichever occurs first.you will need to take the car to the
dealer to have it checked to see if this is the problem that is causing
the light to come on, there should not be a charge to check it if it is
the condition that is covered by the extended warranty. It takes about
3 minutes to determine if the light is on for the OPDS or if it is some
other cause. If it is caused by something else then the dealer will
want to charge you for further diagnosis. At that point you can say
'no' if you don't want to go any further....my guess is it will be covered
under the extended warranty.. Also, it is not a fuse and the airbags will
not go off when the light SRS light is on; whenever the SRS light is on
the airbag system is disabled. Unless you have the special tool, you
can't just turn the light off; even if you did, it would come back on
the next time you drove the car...Guru....saailer
I'm guessing you mean the SRS light, yes. When you have a bad battery the battery voltage can drop below 10 volts. The SRS unit detects this voltage loss and set a DTC (diagnostic trouble code) for an internal SRS unit failure. You have to erase the DTC memory. You'll need an SCS service connector tool (P/N 07PAZ-0010100) You can order one from your local honda dealer. Don't worry its not more than $10. Then you'll have to find the MES 2pin connector located in the upper right hand corner of the drivers underdash fuse box. It can be gray, green or yellow in color. 1.)Turn the ignition switch off. 2.)Unplug the MES connector from the fuse box and plug your SCS special tool into the MES connector. 3.) Turn the ignition switch on. 4.) The (red) SRS light in the dash will come on for 6 seconds and then go off. Remove the SCS tool from the MES (2P) connector within 4 sec. after the SRS light went off. 5.) The SRS light comes on again. Reconnect the SCS tool to the MES (2P) connector within 4 seconds after the SRS light came on. 6.) The SRS light goes off. Remove the SCS tool from the MES (2P) connector within 4 sec. 7.) The SRS light indicates that the memory is erased by blinking twice. 8.) Turn the ignition switch off and wait ten seconds. You may have to do this procedure a few time to get the steps correct. If this sounds to complicated I'm sure your local Honda dealer would be happy to reset the light for you for no charge. Just let them know that the battery was recently replaced and you think that the SRS light came on due to low battery voltage. -Hope this helps:)
SRS stands for Supplimental Restraint System. It's a fancy term for the airbag system. If the airbags have not actually been deployed in a crash, the indicator can be triggered if you turn on the ignition with part of the SRS system disconnected (for instance if you removed a seat and disconnected the wiring harness underneath), or if a component has failed.
This refers to your cars air bag (supplemental restraint system), and indicates (when lighted) that there is a problem with the system. The light will go on briefly when the car is started, this is normal, and serves as a check that the light is operating properly. If it remains on, it indicates a problem, and the system should be checked asap, as it may not work if the car is involved in an accident.
Well thats one of two things. First the srs light stands for Supplemental Restraint System or in otherwords the airbag system now the light being on could be because its due for a maintance check up or there could be a problem with the system
Try his from someone that had the same problem...
"I have the same SRS light problem. Comes on when I start the car and stays on the whole time. I called American Honda (1-800-999-1009) and gave them my VIN number. Apparently there is a warranty extension: 10 yrs or 157,500 miles, whichever comes first on the OPDS (occupant position detector sensor) unit or OPDS sensor which can cause the SRS light to come on. Going to take it to a Honda dealer next week. If that is the problem then it will be fixed for free. If not I have to pay for the diagnosis fee which is about $100 and then however much it cost to fix the problem."
I'm having the same problem, my SRS light is on too. Just so you know, I just got a thing in the
mail from Honda for my 2001 Honda Civic DX Sedan for a recall on the
airbag system (SRS is part of the same system as airbags, I think). Hope
this gives you a bit more info!!
if ur seatbelts are defective, it wont cost u anything. take it back to the dealer and tell them u want to have ur srs light looked at and trouble codes pulled. the seatbelts are lifetime warranty as long as the vehicle hasnt been in an accident
