Reset Your SRS Light

How to reset your SRS light on your civic. This works for 99-00 Civic's as well as 2k1's. What is pictured is actually a 2k1 but the plug for the 99-00's are in the fuse box also, just on the other side of the column. 

1st you need to either buy or make the "SCS Service Connector" #07PAZ-0010100 from H and A Accesories for $3.51. I used a speaker harness for an older Honda which you can buy at a local stereo shop such as Circuit City or Best Buy, and cut the wires and looped them together. You can also use a paperclip but that will make it a little more difficult because you have to connect it and disconnect it a few times quickly.

2nd you need to find the MES (Memory Erase Signal) connector which is pictured below: (Click to enlarge)

SRS Plug
MES Plug in Fuse box.
SCS
SCS Plug

It is a yellow connector with two wires in it that is plugged into the fuse box, unplug it and pull it down. Once you have done that you can begin the process of erasing the memory. NOTE: This will only reset your SRS System if what caused it to trigger has been fixed, Ex: turning the ignition on with any SRS Plugs disconnected, such as pulling your seat out.

1st step in erasing the memory is to turn the ignition off and connect the SCS Service connector to the MES Plug, 

2nd Turn Ignition on. SRS indicator light will come on for about 6 seconds then go off.

3rd Disconnect SCS service connector for MES connector within 4 seconds after SRS indicator light goes off. SRS indicator light will come on again.

4th Reconnect SCS service connector the MES connector within 4 seconds after SRS light comes on. SRS indicator light will go off.

5th Disconnect SCS service connector from MES connector within 4 seconds. SRS indicator light will indicate that memory is erased by blinking 2 times.

6th Turn ignition off, and wait 10 seconds. Start vehicle like normal and light should come on and go out like normal. You have reset your SRS light, congrats.

If it does not work the first time try it again, the timing has to be perfect. My first time it took me 3 attempts before it worked, but it did work.

SOLVED SOLUTION - weak power supply

Just fixed mine with a new battery. My srs started like many many others - when jump start or disconnecting the bat. I do not know why. I think having a bad vreg can also "look" like an weak bat so this could be possible solution for others. GOOD LUCK!

Re: Reset Your SRS Light

instead of trying to plug and unplug two wires, i simply used two separate wires about 18 inches long stripped a half inch at all 4 ends. i inserted each one in the yellow plug and was able to sit on the car seat and easily just hold the other stripped ends together and then release as the light went on or off as directed. thank you for your post. you saved me some big bucks. i owe u a beer!

Re: Reset Your SRS Light

May 2012. I have a 2003 Honda CIVIC Sedan, SRS light issue. Above procedures worked to reset light (I had a micro-on-off-switch laying around and used THAT, with two wires plugged into the MES Yellow connector, latter found under a panel beneath my steering wheel). I've done this procedure about 3 or 4 times since early April, but light has stayed off from 3 days to (since the last time I reset it), to two weeks. I am convinced from this repeated experience that my issue is a very transitory, momentary "flicker" or "activation" of a sensor that causes the SRS light to go on, but that there is no real safety issue. Otherwise, it seems that an existing "real" continuing safety issue would cause the SRS light to come back on almost immediately. Would a genuine safety problem allow the light to stay off for weeks at a time?

Re: Reset Your SRS Light

Just an update on my experience, after resetting SRS light, it will not come back on as along as I turn the car off before undoing the seatbelt. If I get to my destination and undo the seatbelt before turning the car off, the SRS comes back on.

Re: Reset Your SRS Light

Friends, I have the SRS light on for my 2001 Honda civic. The Honda dealer confirmed that the light is on because of some problem with the seat belt and not a problem with the airbag. I am actually moving from Ontario to Alberta and planning to take my car but I heard that cats which are more than 10 years old need to undergo a out of province safety inspection before it can be registered in Alberta. Can anyone suggest if my car will pass safety inspection if the SRS light is on?

Re: Reset Your SRS Light

seat belts are pretty common problem on the 7th gen.
search for seatbelts instead of SRS light.
Cat have nothing to do with this Do It Yourself thread so I will not reply here.

Not to be a s**t here, but I think he actually did mean catalytic converter, as sdaidoji was addressing nick999's q about 10 yr old cats... which yes, doesn't belong in this thread.

So an SRS light can come on due to a faulty seatbelt retractor, hmmm... mine is doing the common slow-reel thing, so looks like I better take the cover off and clean it before it becomes a thing.

Depends. Does your retractor have a yellow detonator harness on it?

I really only popped in here to comment on this line...

I think there's actually a service info about cleaning the B pillar shoulder-height turnbuckle with rubbing alcohol where the belt slides through it.

For lack of better pic, it's this one

I've had worse jobs, and been on waaaaaay worse forums. No disrespect intended, but the correction might prevent confusion later... esp as much as most posters here seem to skim.

Haven't gotten it apart yet. So, no harness, no effect on SRS light? Is this mostly on side-airbag models?

Okay -- did clean what schmutz I could see with some Lysol wipes when I bought it, but haven't taken the trim panel off over the belt path and reel yet... which I'm just going to expect more dirt and nastiness with. Needs done and done...

Funny you should post a pic of a Ford turnbuckle -- an old Escort I helped a g/f with had the same slow-reel problem... but didn't respond to cleaning the turnbuckle, though it helped a tiny bit. Turned out it was 15 yrs of red dirt, leaves, blonde hair, and other crap from the previous owner was in the reel mechanism, and seized it.

Right. No way to monitor anything unless something is wired and sensed.

Quote:

No? IDK? I don't keep track of that.
Doesn't matter, you were talking about the seat belt retractor. I pictured the one in the B pillar. The only ones with wires are the exploding ones. If the resistance of the firing circuit is incorrect, a code is set and the idiot light comes on.
Is that particular design in your car? I can 't tell you that from here right now.


But the cars are well known for the buckle switch being bad too.

I've seen the belts get twisted in there, and have seen a twist wrapped up in the reel too. Not sure how it happens, but it does.





I think we've completely trashed this DIY thread now.
