Replacement Airbags For your Vehicle

I drove the car the other day, everything was fine. Turned it off for a little while and when I got back and started it the airbag light came on and stayed on. Not sure why its on or what to do to turn it off. Does this mean the airbag is not functioning properly? Has anyone had this problem? It is a 2005 Honda Civic Si Sedan.

On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights on the …scanlist.aspx page listed below.

The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Your vehicle will NOT require a scan tool for the proper diagnosis. Here’s a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.
Airbagsolutions.com has the fault code charts to tell you what is wrong! Although it’s a pay site ($14.95/day), it’s a lot cheaper than going to the dealer.

Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) . Most all other vehicles require a scan tool for the diagnosis. Here is a link to the list of vehicle and scanner requirements.

    There’s something wrong with the system. It may not deploy in an accident. If it’s your car, get the system checked. If it was a car you were planing to buy, reject it and find another car. It may or may not be a cheap fix.

    Probably the most common cause of SRS warning lights in Honda cars of that era is the sensor in the passenger seat, or sometimes the one in the driver seat. Be sure there is nothing in the passenger seat, like a bag of groceries, because that can spoof the system.
