Default SRS light on '01 Civic

I recently completed 80K miles on my '01 Civic and the SRS light came
on. I haven't been any accidents, so I'm not sure how come it come on
out of the blue. Need help on what are the various causes for the
light to come on? I'm just trying to get an idea before getting ripped
off by a dealer. I read a number of posts on how to reset it, but if I
do, will the airbags still deploy in case of an accident?

--------------

Does you owner's manual mention anything about carrying heavy items on
the passenger's seat? Resetting it is like restarting Windows to make
it work (as if).

It doesn't disable anything.

Nothing to do with that.

Because the airbag ECU saw something wrong, so it disabled the bags and
lit up the lamp so you would know.

About 100,000 of them. Or so it seems.

The ripoff dealer has copies of the half-dozen (or so it seems) TSBs
detailing known problems with the SRS system in your model. 06-009 is
the main one as far as I know.

Plus there is at least one warranty extension involving the SRS. That
means a FREE fix for you! Free fixes are only available at the ripoff
dealer, not at non-ripoff joints like Jiffy Lube or Firestone.

Visit your friendly neighborhood ripoff dealer for more.

Maybe. Provided there is no underlying problem resetting the light would
mask. Your ripoff dealer knows how to fix your car.

The SRS light comes on because something failed. As long as the light is ON
the air bags are disabled. The code has to be read from the control unit to
determine what has failed. So take it to the dealer or a good service garage
and have the code read Then they can determine what it will cost to fix.

My friend and Ii both had '01 Accords. Both had the SRS light come on
within 500 miles of each other.

Both were the seatbelt latch. This is covered under warranty forever.
Don't let any dealer bullshit you. Mine tried to. Told me it wasn't
covered. I hand an independent replace it, then I found out it WAS covered.
I called American Honda, and they paid me the amount I paid the local shop
to do it.
