Question about 1997 Honda Civic
The srs light on my dash i red why is this?
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.

It means there is a problem with your air bag system . They currently do not work. have the vehicle scanned for codes and do the repairs the codes recommend .

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)
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.
