I have a 1996 Honda Civic and out of the blue the SRS Airbag light came on. Any clues of what it could be?

It came on because there is a problem with your airbag system. You can drive the car like this but if you get in an accident, the air bag(s) will not deploy.

    If you buy an OBD-II code reader it may be able to read out the error code. Possibly a sensor error code. But sometimes only a Honda Dealer OBD-II scanner will be able to read out the trouble code.

    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. These systems can only be diagnosed using a scanner designed for the airbag system. The scanners at Auto Zone or the ones that sell for @ $50 will not access the airbag system, only the engine systems (check engine light).
    This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting some systems without a scanner. Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate that (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) and some require a scan tool. http://www.airbagsolutions.com/
