    You also need new "crash sensors". You have to change the "entire system" or you chance blowing them in your face from a bump in the road, a hard turn, or even shutting your door.

    You must replace your sensors, your monitor, and your airbags. If you don't know what you're doing, let your honda dealer fix it.

    the very 1st thing u do is buy a factory service manual and follow it to the letter, if one of the bags goes off during installation then you will have a very good chance of getting killed, usual cause a broken neck..

Unless your a auto technician I would not advise this. static discharge could cause the airbag to explode in your face while trying to put it on. Also by law all sensors to do with the SRS must be replaced whether they seem to be affected or not. leave this one to the professionals.

Where are the airbag sensors located in a 2003 honda accord?


The sensor is usually encased in a pnuematic piston located in the front bumper. You ran over a curb? You hit the bumper, it deployed.

Tip

Air bag replacement - Honda Accordian


If you've been in an accident that deployed your airbags, but left your car functional you no doubt have discovered the outrageous cost of airbag replacement. Getting replacements from a salvage yard and doing the replacement yourself is a relatively inexpensive alternative. I hope everyone is ok.

I worked at a wrecking yard where I pulled hundreds of airbags. I want you to understand, they can be dangerous if handled improperly.

Some warnings before you begin. Take these Seriously!!!
  • Alway wear safety glasses.
  • Control the environment - no kids, pets, people horsing around.
  • Disconnect the negative battery terminal. After you are done, make sure no one is inside the vehicle when you reconnect the battery. If your vehicle has an anti-theft system, you'll need to get your activation codes to reset your sound system.
  • Do not use solvents to clean your airbags. They may ignite if accidentally deployed. Use only a damp cloth.
  • Airbags are sensitive to heat in excess of 190 degrees F. Store them accordingly.
  • Airbags are sensitive to impact - handle them carefully
  • Airbags are sensitive to static electricity - ground yourself, Spray the seat and rug with fabric softener (anti-static - ever heard the term 'static cling')
  • Be safe
The procedures are pretty simple

Drivers Side:
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Loosen and remove the retaining screws from behind the steering wheel. Rotate the wheel as needed to access the screws. You may need to purchase new retaining screws in advance to install the new bag.
  • Return the wheel to the straight ahead position.
  • Lift the airbag assembly out and disconnect the wiring connector from the rear of the unit.
  • Unwrap the new airbag (carefully).
  • Connect the the wiring connector and seat the airbag into the steering wheel. Be sure the wire doesn't get pinched.
  • Install the new retaining screws and tighten them securely.
Passenger side:
  • Loosen and remove the passenger side dash retaining screws
  • Move it downward to release the retaining clips and remove.
  • Unscrew the airbag retaining screws along the edge of the airbag.
  • Move the airbag assembly downward the release it fom its mounting pegs.
  • Remove the airbag from the dash, disconnecting the wire as soon as you are able. I believe your model has mounting guides, if so save them.
  • If there were guides, place them back into the mounting frame.
  • Position the airbag over the mounting frame and reconnect the wiring connector.
  • Mount the new airbag, securely tighten the retaining screws.
  • Remount the dash and screw it back in.
  • Make sure nobody is in the car
  • Reconnect the battery.
All done

One more time, be serious, be careful, be safe.

I hope this helps

Why will my 1997 honda accord not start after front end collision and airbag deployment?


There are sensors connected to the airbag circuit that will prevent the car from starting after a deployment. You will need to replace the airbag and have the computer reset by a technician to clear this.

97 honda accord. Airbags on dash an steering wheel deployed. How do I repalce them and reset the system.


Get replacement airbag, and there is a electrical connector in the steering wheel, unplug old bag and plug new bag in. PLEASE disable the airbag system before doing this or new bag can deploy!
Then you should be able to mount bag and then rearm system

2006 honda accord seatbelt deployed and now my srs light is on how can I reset


If you're talking about the airbag, (seat belt deployed makes no sense,) you have to have the dealership replace the airbag and charge before it will pass inspection...

They'll clear the SRS light.

Disconnect the battery ground cable -- wait 30 minutes for capacitors to discharge. Then be very gentle when working with components of the airbag system.

Airbag light won't turn off.


if you bought your car used
there is a large likelyhood you have had a deploy in this car b4 and they just did a re pack and well it's letting go and should probably be inspected by a pro rather than a home user spend some time and get a quote on replacement rather have your life or your kids life than cash trust me

BMW 318i SE Airbag light


something in the airbag system is at fault. it could be the airbag(s) itself or any of the sensors that detect a crash to deploy the airbag. i would really take it into BMW and have it checked & repaired. the airbag(s) will not deploy with this light on so your safety is at risk if you are ever in an accident..
