The most common cause of an air bag warning light on your model car is the "clock spring" has failed. A clock spring is available at most national auto parts chain stores and of course any Honda dealer. There is no danger the bag will go off, but it may malfunction in an accident. The clock spring is the enclosed device inside the steering column just below the steering wheel. It is the device that allows one to turn the steering wheel and have a circuit that remains intact to deploy the drivers side air bag (if triggered) regardless of the clocked position of the steering wheel. If you are not comfortable replacing inflatable restraint systems parts, I recommend you go to a qualified independent mechanic in your area. On post-1996 cars and trucks, you should be able to hook up an OBD II scanner and get the fault codes. If you get a code that indicates Driver-Side Air Bag Circuit - High Resistance or Open in Circuit, that code would refer to the clock spring. If you need help with the codes and what they mean, just come back here and we will try our best to help. Good luck and let us know if you have any follow up questions!

Srs light is on why


When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.

My srs light had been on


It is my understanding that the SRS is a dealer only reset because it requires a code that is proprietory to MB dealers only. Now, a garage with a good scanner (loaded with applicable MB program) may be able to reset it for cheaper than a dealer. Nonetheless, I do not believe you can reset it on your own.

A side note, as long as the SRS light is on, your airbag and/or belt tensioners may not work if you're in a collision.
