Hi the srs light being on means your air bag system needs servicing, the reason being is that air cannistors that fire the air bags only have a certain life limit, once they reach this limit they need replacing as the air bag system wont be working properly until you get this serviced.

its not a job you can do yourself as the general public cant get the parts to do the work nor the machine to reset the system.

SOURCE: srs light

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.

Please rate my answer if it is useful to you.

SRS light came on on dash. windshield wipers are sluggish, radio stopped, no lights, power windows are slow. Jerks when you change gears. I've turned it off and now won't start. I don't know what the SRS...


Your describing what happenes when a car runs out of battery power and your altenator has failed you. On your dash lights, has a battery symbol light appeared? An easy way to find out if your altenator has kicked the bucket is to hook up a voltage meter and see if you have 14.5 volts at your battery while the engine is running. But before you do that, you need to get your battery charged. Once you have that taken care of any auto parts store can do a free test with a battery tester to find out what is the cause of your electrical issue. For your SRS light it maybe due to your battery running dead or something else, You will need a scanner for that and again an auto parts store should be able to pull the code. Hope this helps you out.

Most cars and trucks can be re-set by disconnecting the negative batery cable for about 10 minutes...this should auto re-set to factory specs...if the light comes back on, you have wired into the wrong system. Hope this helps.

responsible for deploying the airbag in the event of an accident. If this system is malfunctioning, the airbag may not deploy properly during an accident. However, the system does warn you of a system malfunction. The yellow "SRS" light on the dash will light up, indicating a problem with the system. Once you've fixed the problem, you need to know how to reset the SRS light on your Accord

Have the vehicle scanned for codes .See If SRS is one of the codes in memory. If it is repair it.
To locate the SRS light aka airbag system, putkey in ignition turnto on position and look at dash for SRS light. it will go out within 30 sec of vehicle being turned on.
Lastly go to a different station for Inspection.

Battery was low and put in new battery,problem SRC Light stays on how can I reset the SRC light?


I'm guessing you mean the SRS light, yes. When you have a bad battery the battery voltage can drop below 10 volts. The SRS unit detects this voltage loss and set a DTC (diagnostic trouble code) for an internal SRS unit failure. You have to erase the DTC memory. You'll need an SCS service connector tool (P/N 07PAZ-0010100) You can order one from your local honda dealer. Don't worry its not more than $10. Then you'll have to find the MES 2pin connector located in the upper right hand corner of the drivers underdash fuse box. It can be gray, green or yellow in color. 1.)Turn the ignition switch off. 2.)Unplug the MES connector from the fuse box and plug your SCS special tool into the MES connector. 3.) Turn the ignition switch on. 4.) The (red) SRS light in the dash will come on for 6 seconds and then go off. Remove the SCS tool from the MES (2P) connector within 4 sec. after the SRS light went off. 5.) The SRS light comes on again. Reconnect the SCS tool to the MES (2P) connector within 4 seconds after the SRS light came on. 6.) The SRS light goes off. Remove the SCS tool from the MES (2P) connector within 4 sec. 7.) The SRS light indicates that the memory is erased by blinking twice. 8.) Turn the ignition switch off and wait ten seconds. You may have to do this procedure a few time to get the steps correct. If this sounds to complicated I'm sure your local Honda dealer would be happy to reset the light for you for no charge. Just let them know that the battery was recently replaced and you think that the SRS light came on due to low battery voltage. -Hope this helps:)

HI the SRS trouble light is on on the dash,


Hi, this is usually caused by an accident. What happens in such a case is the pre-tensioners in the seat belts are activated when the impact sensors are activated. The SRS control unit is blown when this happens to make sure that the SRS system operates correctly after repairs. You will need to replace the SRS control unit and the seat belts.
