Hi
This is perfectly normal for this light to com on and going off after a few seconds. The SRS computer needs to make sure all the sensors and airbags are responding at first ignition key on, then if all of them are responding and working, the light goes off.
If it happens that the light doesn't go OFF after 30secs and stays ON all the times then you should pay a visit to your local dealer.
But for now you can enjoy your car safely.
Cheers,
Technopro

How do I fix the SRS light... The car has been sitting for a few year and only started up each month , now the SRS light is not working


The supplemental restraint system (SRS) warning light is most commonly known as the airbag system light. This is a computer controlled system .
When the vehicle is first started, the SRS light should come on for 1 to 5 seconds while the system goes through a self-test sequence. If the light goes out, then the system is ready. If the light stays on, there is a fault somewhere in the SRS system.
if the light won't come on at all, the coputer system needs to be checked out.

Srs light


Contrary to popular belief, the dashboard SRS light CAN be reset without the need for a Rover dealer! All that is needed is a paperclip.
  1. Directly under the steering wheel, just under the bottom of the dashboard and above the pedals, there should be a wide grey connector.
  2. A few inches towards the driver's door from this, there should be a horizontal 2-pin yellow connector (with nothing connected to it).
  3. Bend the paperclip into a u-shape, and push the ends into the 2-pin yellow connector (shorting the pins).
  4. Turn on the ignition, and the SRS light should illuminate for a few seconds and then go out.
  5. Now pull out the paperclip (but not completely out), breaking the link.
  6. After a couple more seconds, the SRS light should illuminate again.
  7. Now push the paperclip back in, making the link again.
  8. After a couple of seconds, the SRS light should blink twice.
  9. Remove the paperclip, and then switch off the ignition.

That resets the SRS system and next time you start the car, the lamp should be off.

The above all needs to be carried out fairly quickly as you only get a few seconds between each step.

Note:
Because you can't see the yellow connector and the SRS light at the same time, it's really a two-person job.

Important:
Obviously this only applies if there is no fault! If there is a fault, the light will illuminate again and will therefore need to be looked at by a Rover dealer.

This procedure is pretty tricky, but it is 100% correct.

Battery was low and put in new battery,problem SRC Light stays on how can I reset the SRC light?


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:)

My 2006 mitsubishi colt check engine light comes on and the accelerator pedal is giving no power and the car limps when this happens, then the car goes fine again?


There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Not to mention the big list of trouble codes for the engine light. The engine light code will give you a big clue of what's causing the accelerator pedal problem.


Best way to find out what's going on engine light is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means and the problem. Most auto-part store will do this for free.
