Q: SRS light illuminated

asked by on

My SRS light is on.

When a vehicle displays the SRS light, it signals that there is a problem with its’ Supplemental Restraint System, also known as your car’s airbags. When this light is on, your Honda’s airbags are disabled so the system does not accidentally activate. Some of the common reasons why you may see this light on include; the clock spring inside the steering wheel has failed or a seat belt sensor has failed. Over time these components can build up corrosion which creates resistance in the air bag circuit which in turn prevents the SRS from functioning properly. When it comes to a situation like this, I find it best to recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic to look over your Honda. They will be able to scan the computer to reveal the code(s) which will assist them in determining why your SRS light is on. They will also be able to make the necessary repairs to restore your SRS system to function properly and keep you safe in the event of a collision.
