Air bag inflator recall: should this procedure involve the SRS indicator light?

Replacement Airbags For your Vehicle

the mechanic wanted me to pay $109 for a scope before he would turn the SRS indicator light off. My SRS light stayed on after leaving the seat belt jammed in the door accidentally over night. There was an air bag inflator recall on all Honda civics. The mechanic stated turning the SRS light off wouldn’t work unless he did the scope, because he claimed that the light had nothing to do with the airbag recall… Is that true?

The SRS light has nothing to do with the seat belt. It is very possible that the recall is the cause of the light. Take the car in for the recall and they will tell you if there is another problem with the system. I would bet that when they do the recall, the light will be reset at no charge.

    Yes, it is true. If your airbag light came on after you jammed the seatbelt in the door, it is possible that the seatbelt pretensioner deployed causing the airbag light to come on. More than likely, your seatbelt will have to be replaced before the light will go away and even after the belt is replaced the light will have to be turned off. I know that $109 seems outrageous to have a light turned off, but the computer used to turn off those lights costs several thousands of dollars and must be updated with software every year to stay current.

    Hi Scarab:
    Recalls are free. go there first. They will scan the system exactly the same a s the other shop and supply you with the answer. With any luck it’s all covered.
