Question about 2005 Acura TL
Does clip A of the ECM/PCM in the middle of the dash have anything to do with the air bag system?
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.

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 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
