honda civic 1997 airbag light on

car is a Honda civic 1997 R reg. the SRS airbag light is staying on

The car was washed a few hours earlier, then the airbag light was staying on, not sure if the car wash is related.

Ive had a look for the connectors under the seat but cant see any, anyone advise

I had to have my SRS controller replaced twice on my 97. First was at abut 4 years and then the next one failed within a year after that. You might want to have it tested. They told me if that light is on, the bag will not deploy in an accident. I also read online that it could deploy for no reason although my local honda Service Tech did not believe that.

then that tech needs to have it happen to him because it did to me twice, once when i got out of the car, it went off and the second when it was sitting parked outside my house. the same sensor is the one that controled the front airbags is th one that failed those two times.

I am not sure if a garage would be able to test for that or not. I suppose if they have a list of Honda Codes they would be able to figure it out.

Off hand, I think installed the controller was somewhere around $500 - $700. I don't remember though, that was 5 years ago.

yeah the controller for the front airbags is about 450 bucks, so the dealer shoud fix it if they don't or are too stupid you need to call up American Honda and tell them the problem, be sure to have your VIN and they should be able to help you out in the event the dealer does not do thier job properly.
