I really hope u get a good answer. I have a 1994 Honda Accord EX and the ABS light won't go off!I say there might be a malfunction with your airbag, you should definitely get it checked out. If nothing comes up, you can get the code cleared.

Try to remove battery cable, unplug the airbag and plug back so it can reset or simply just remove the lightbulb in the cluster. Try if this works.

Take it to your local Honda repair shop, the SRS light means the system just needs checked and the dealership has the tool to reset the light.

The SRS ligh indicates a failure somewhere in the Aibag system. You can clear the code(reset it) But everytime you turn on the car it does a self check and the light will just come back on if the problem is still there.I would recommend taking it to a Honda dealer because it is very likely that it could be a seat belt buckle switch failure that would still be covered under warranty as Honda seat belts and buckles have a lifetime warranty. Of course there are other reasons that can trigger that light to come on but if you go to any other mechanic they will charge you and then just send you off to the dealer if it is something under warranty so you will have wasted your money.

you'd have to take it to the dealer and have them initialize the srs system or replace srs unit or airbag. It's the only way. Certified factory trained Honda/Acura technician.
