Question about 2004 Honda Element

1 Answer

Airbag light The air bag light came on in my 2004 Honda Element. I had a mechanic run diagnostics and he said it looked like a transmission problem. On the way to have the transmission looked at it broke down. The garage flushed the transmission - said the PSI switch shorted and 3rd clutch switch sticking. They replaced the solenoid, and switch. Now two weeks later my air bag light is back on. What is going on?

My 2004 Honda Accord LX dashbooard airbag light comes on and stays on sometimes

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 airbag 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 1/2 hour prior.

My 2004 Honda Civic has an air bag light on the dashboard. It turned on when I moved the drivers seat forward. I know that the air bag has never been deployed. Is there any way I can clear the light, or...

There are quite few components involved in the system that will turn on the air bag light.
Air bags, wiring, seatbelts and sensors are all part of it.
I suspect that when you moved your seat it may have broken a wire near the seat causing the light to come on.
If you want to check for anything obviously broken around the seat area you may be able to save yourself some diagnostic time when you take it in.
Working with air bag systems can be dangerous so I would suggest you take it to an experience mechanic.
Make sure whoever you take it to has the proper tools to do the repair.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Air bag light is on

When the light comes on, it means there's a problem with the airbag system itself. You can't just turn the light off because the system is telling you that the airbag most likely will not deploy when needed. You should have a mechanic look into this....

The air bag light comes on in my Grandson's Honda 2004 Honda CRV limited edition. It was suggested he might need a new battery so he did that but the light still comes on.

An airbag light comes on for many reasons. On some cars you can check it manually without a scanner. there is a site with instructions on video for free.
