Question about 1996 Honda Accord
The SRS stands for Supplemental Restraint System. Most people call it the air bags but the SRS system includes all of the sensors and control units for air bags, seat belt pre-tensioners and passenger detection systems on cars that are equiped with them
each time you start the car up the SRS control unit will do a self-test of the system to make sure all of the sensors are working properly. The SRS light will stay on while that test is conducted. If all is well and everything passes the on-board test the light will go out in about 7 seconds. If something is wrong the light will stay on.
whenever a failure is detected for any reason,the SRS light is turned on and the system is shut off. The air bags will not be deployed when the SRS light is on.
They call it a Supplemental Restraint System because your seat belts are your primary restraint system.
hope that answers your question

The SRS light comes on when there is a fault in the ABS braking system. First, check your brake fluid level and if the light still stays on then unplug your battery cable for 15 min and then reinstall it. If the light still stays lit then you will need to have the brake system looked at by a certified mechanic

Hi, the bit is called a Torx Bit or a star bit. Don't get the type for a screwdriver, get the socket that would go on a ratchet, you'll need to put an extension on it of course to get in there. Push hard or it will strip. Give Honda a call and ask them what size it is for your car for sure, might be a 6mm or you can just buy a metric Torx Bit Set. Separately they are $3.99 at Autozone. Not sure how much the kit is. Good luck.

The SRS light means "airbag malfunction" take it to the dealer, only they, will be able to tell you which airbag is malfuntioning. Do not, I repeat do not attempt to fix this on your own airbags have tricky sensor and can cause a even worse problem.

Open the door of both sides (driver and passenger) and look for the panel for the fuses. Remove the panel and you will see the fuse box. The information of the fuses is on the panel.

it should be located in the center console, behind your ashtray, under your radio, remove the ashtray and you will see it, this should give you access to the port, thanks
