THE SRS means Air bag sensor and trigger ..

Simply put the SRS light tells you that the sensor cant connect to the trigger of your airbag namely the one locate in the steering wheel. This is beacause of a device known as a clock spring located in the steering. Its moves like a clock and allows the sensor and bag to get connection but sometimes the coil wires get broken.

To fix this take it to a SHOP.
reasons for that.
1.) A DEPLOYED AIR BAG WILL KILL YOU
2.) WITHOUT THE PROPER KNOWLEDGE YOU WILL DEPLOY THE AIR BAG
3.) EQUIPMENT IS EXPENSIVE

the fix involves. (REMOVE BATTERY)
1.) remove the steering wheel using the lock bolt and key
2.) unblot and remove then unlock the clock spring
3.) replace,
4.) recalibrate and reset spring
5.) reset error codes
6.) reassemble
7.) reset error codes.

I have Acura 2003 3.2 TL, its Malfunction indicator light is blinking... suddenly stopped on way and when restarted... it started...possible causes?


Blinking check engine lights usually indicate the problem is severe enough that it could be doing damage to the catalytic converter. Typically engine misfires will cause this to happen. Check to see what codes caused the light to come on. Post them here and I'll be happy to help you further

You've got trouble codes stored by they're most likely enhanced codes that your code reader can't read. Inexpensive code readers and only read generic trouble codes. Codes above P0800 are "enhanced" code that require a more professional scan tool to access.

Engine malfunction indicator is on


The first thing I usually do when seeing a malfunction indicator light on, is to have it scanned with an OBD-II scanner available from Sears, Walmart, or a local auto parts store such as Autozone or Advance Auto Parts. Some auto parts stores will scan it for free.

Srs light stays on on my Honda civic


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.

RESET 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 connectivity2_bing.gif problem.

I DO NOT disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s)

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Check Engine light on Acura TL 3.2 1999


You can turn off the Check Engine light by either disconnecting the battery or by using a code reader to clear the codes. However, if the problem still exists it will come right back on. Instead you should get the code read, find out what the problem is, and fix it. Your local autozone or checker auto parts store will read them for free.

SRS indicator light on.


Hello,

I'm not sure what "clip A of the ECM/PCM" means but I will try to answer your question. I can tell you that there is no connection between the ECM/PCM systems and the SRS(air bag) Systems. They are completly separate system. The only thing they have in common would be power sources at the fuse box. One system shouldn't affect the other. SRS has separate harnesses and components in the vehicle. Nothing is shared for safety.

Hope this answers your question.
