Re: SRS indicator on the main meter is glowing...
The SRS stands for Supplemental Restraint System, and it means theres a problem with the cars air bag. That is not something you want to try to diagnose or fix yourself. You can accidentally deploy the air bag, and if youe anywhere near it when it does, you can be very seriously injured. I would recommend taking the car to a good shop that has experience with air bags, to check the system. Good luck.

***WARNING*** working on the SRS is dangerous if procedure is not followed exactly. Read this carefully: Electrical Air Bag SRS, and follow it to the letter. Depending on year your reset procedure for the SRS may vary, either by using the diagnostic connection under the hood or by using a jumper wire on the SRS test connection in the main electrical distribution block behind the ashtray.
2-3-2 is the OBD1 code for Incorrect Mixture Ratio: The system has compensated swiftly by additive computation and is at adaptive limit (too rich, check fuel pressure regulator and its vacuum connection to start). The other code (2-3-1) means multiplicative adaptation has taken place at idle (slow adaptation) and is at limit. Both codes usually indicate the oxygen sensor is no longer doing its job or there are major vacuum leaks in the system, usually near the intake manifold or throttle body.
Whenever this warning light or any
other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control
module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil
pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then
disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL,
CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must
now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and
"scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS
Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission
control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control
module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System, MIL Malfunction Indicator
Lamp, CEL Check Engine Light.
SRS means Supplementary Restraint System or as an Air Cushion Restraint System (ACRS), if the light is on, it is most likely a computer response telling you something is wrong. The SRS refers to the deployment of your airbag in an accident.
The most likely possibility is the connector for the airbag is
not on securely. Check the connector first. But if the connector is connected
properly then you will have to get the
error codes to locate the exact problem for SRS light ON. There is a way to
pull the codes from the SRS control unit without a scan tool. 1.Turn the ignition switch OFF , and wait for ten seconds. Then
connect the SCS service connector to the service check connector (2P). If you
do not wait ten seconds, the SRS unit will not be completely reset and will not
output DTCs. 2.Turn the ignition switch ON (II). The SRS indicator light comes
on for about six seconds and goes off. Then it will indicate the DTC: ·The DTC consists of
a main code and a sub-code. ·Including the most
recent problem, up to three different malfunctions can be indicated. ·In case of a
continuous failure, the DTC will be indicated repeatedly. ·In case of an
intermittent failure, the SRS indicator light will indicate the DTC one time, and
then it will stay on. ·If both a continuous
and an intermittent failure occur, both DTCs will be indicated as continuous
failures. ·In case the system
is normal (no DTC), the SRS indicator light will stay on. 3.Read the DTC. 4.Turn the ignition switch OFF, and wait for ten seconds. Then
disconnect the SCS service connector from the service check connector (2P). The SCS Service Tool is nothing more than a
jumper wire. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
It's detecting that there's an issue with your air bags. I wouldn't recommend working on your air bag system unless you know absolutely what you're doing as you can accidentally set them off or cause them to not work at all
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.
