Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

To turn them off you have to fix what turned them on in the first place to do this you will have to have the computer scanned btw the srs is your airbag system

How do i remove the radion on a 200 acura rl


You cann't remove only radio you have to remove whole panel which contains radio.

There are two possible scenarios for you car radio panel


1. Your car can have Navigator, Climate Controller and Radio.

2. Your car can have Climate Controller and Radio.

You have to open whole panel.

This Panel contains some of SRS components, so have to be very careful while removing it!

Maint required light flashing 10 times when I start a car 2000 acura rl 181000 miles I had a tune-up & oil change 1 month ago, car runs perfect


These happens every "scheduled maintenance" milage. Pretty soon it will come on and stay on.

On a 1999, if you hold in the milage reset buttons and turn on the key to 2nd position, the maintenance light will go out.

2000 Acura RL and 2000 Acura Integra GS ABS light on


The SRS computer needs to be reset, if you dont have a repair manual i would first suggest finding one for each car. The basic principal is that you jumper the diagnostic plug (under the glove box in the RL). The next step I believe is that you must depress the TCS button, then while holding it down you turn the key to on, continue to hold the TCS button for 15 sec and then let off. The check engine light should then blink really quick a few times and that means its reset. Im reciting this from memory so dont quote me on it. I have done it before for the RL but not the integra, id really suggest finding a repair manual though.
