Default SRS light problem

Just bought a 2000 RL. The RL light was on during the test drive. The
dealership said they fixed it and it has not been on for the week I have had
it. I even have the repair order that said there is nothing wrong and the
service dept reset it. The SRS light has come back on after about 80 miles.
Before I take it back to the dealership this coming week I would like to
become more educated.
What does this light signify?
Is this a known problem with 2000 RLS?
Is this a "take care of immediately" item?

Your input would be appreciated.
Jackson

SRS light usually means that something is wrong with your airbags. I
have a TL that had a bad seatbelt clip which set off that light also.
The SRS light should come on when you start your car. That does a
diagnoses and should go out. Have them fix it and be sure they tell you
what's wrong.

Default Re: SRS light problem - my experience

When SRS light is on, the Air bags will not functional.
I have a 2000RL bought new, (manufactured in 2000/5), I have replace 3 SRS
controller units
(in the passanger seat back) and 1 SRS sensors (within the passanger seat).
and may be 2 resets. Each controller last less than one year. a reset last
no more than
a month. All repairs were under warrantey. Last August the SRS lights again,
I bring the car to a dealer (Tisher Acura, Laural Maryland) and threated to
file a
lemon law sue, the car stay in the dealer repair shop for three days, then
I been told they have an extensive check of the SRS circuity (not just
replace a part)
and found that one of the electrical clip have been shorted. So far the car
does not
have any other problem other than this SRS lights on. I certainly hope they
really
found and fix this problem. Because the car is out of warranty now. Good
luck!

Thanks for the reply.
Dealer said seatbelt clip is the problem. Had to leave the car overnight so
the part could come in. They gave me a loaner to get to work today. I hope
this solves the problem.
