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 IS SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM. THIS IS YOUR AIRBAG SYSTEM.WHEN YOU SEE SRS LIGHT FLASHING TAKE VECHICLE TO DEALERSHIP SEE WHAT CAUSING PROBLEM DONT TRY FIX AIRBAGS SYSTEM YOUR SELF LET DEALERSHIP FIX AIRBAGS DANGEROUS THEY CAN DEPLOY WHILE TRYING TO FIX SO LET PROFESSIONAL TECHNICIAN FIX.
1st you need to either buy or make the "SCS Service Connector" #07PAZ-0010100 from H and A Accesories for $3.51. Use a speaker harness for an older Honda which you can buy at a local stereo shop such as Circuit City or Best Buy, and cut the wires and looped them together. You can also use a paperclip but that will make it a little more difficult because you have to connect it and disconnect it a few times quickly.2nd you need to find the MES (Memory Erase Signal) connector as pictured below It is a yellow connector with two wires in it that is plugged into the fuse box, unplug it and pull it down. Once you have done that you can begin the process of erasing the memory. NOTE: This will only reset your SRS System if what caused it to trigger has been fixed, Ex: turning the ignition on with any SRS Plugs disconnected, such as pulling your seat out.
1st step in erasing the memory is to turn the ignition off and connect the SCS Service connector to the MES Plug.
2nd Turn Ignition on. SRS indicator light will come on for about 6 seconds then go off.
3rd Disconnect SCS service connector for MES connector within 4 seconds after SRS indicator light goes off. SRS indicator light will come on again.
4th Reconnect SCS service connector the MES connector within 4 seconds after SRS light comes on. SRS indicator light will go off.
5th Disconnect SCS service connector from MES connector within 4 seconds. SRS indicator light will indicate that memory is erased by blinking 2 times.
6th Turn ignition off, and wait 10 seconds. Start vehicle like normal and light should come on and go out like normal. You have reset your SRS light, congrats.
If it does not work the first time try it again, the timing has to be perfect. My first time it took me 3 attempts before it worked, but it did work.
SRS if you didn't already know is your secondary restraint system (airbags)...... you can try resetting it by unhooking the battery for about ten minutes.... before you do that you may want to go down to autozone and have them scan the codes to see what it is showing.
Not to scare you, but having your airbag light on is usually a computer problem, and there have been cases of the airbag deploying for no good cause. I don't think you need a computer, but someone will have to hook up to your vehicle with a computer, and scan it. Also do a carfax check on that vin number. If the seat belt is locked, and the airbag (SRS) light is on, it sounds like the vehicle has been in an accident. I hope all goes well, and by all means, if any new info comes up, I would like to hear. Thanks.
SRS stand for Supplymentary Restraint System, The purpose of the SRS light on your instrument panel is to alert you of a potential problem with your supplemental restraint system. It should blink seven times when you turn the ignition switch to ON or START and go OFF.
A possible fault in the system can lead to any of the following:
(a) The light does not come on when you turn the ignition ON.
(b) The light stays on after the engine starts.
(c) The light comes on while you are driving.
Apart from the conventional causes of these faults (faulty airbag system), majority of the light indicator problem has been attributed to ignorance while fixing or repairing mechanical and/or wiring systems within the vehicle.
If the SRS indicator light alerts you to a problem, have the supplemental restraint system inspected as soon as possible. If you ignore this indication, the airbags might not inflate when you need them.
Steering wheel modifications
Faulty driver/passenger seat sensors for your airbag system (located under the seats)
Faulty seat belt mechanism
Tampered system components or wiring (e.g battery jumpering)
* Sometimes, a little adjustment of your seat belts and/or seat positions might fix the indicator problem over time (if the sensors are not faulty). Precautions:
Do not modify your steering wheel or any other part of the supplemental restraint system. Modifications could make the system ineffective.
Do not tamper with the system's components or wiring. This could cause the airbags to inflate inadvertently, possibly injuring someone very seriously.
Tell anyone who works on your vehicle that you have a supplemental restraint system. Failure to follow the procedures and precautions in the official service manual could result in personal injury or damage to the system.
If all sensors are ok, the system can be reset using appropriate tools; refer to specially trained technicians.
