Re: my airbag light is on, and scaring the crap outta me !

A standard scanner will not find the code. Could be the clock spring in the steering wheel, a seat belt sensor, or an impact sensor (possibly the SRS computer).. No way to tell, unless you just worked on something, had an electrical issue or get an SRS/ABS code scanner to look at it.. then we can start narrowing things down. For now, reset the ECU and see if it comes right back.. or what happens.

I have seen a dead battery and a loose connection under the seat trigger a code on newer Hondas.. never had an issue with the B.

P.S.

If it scaring you because you might think something is going to "POP" on you.. if the light is on, the system is shut down

^^^ Good info.
To show SRS codes it needs a shop scanner with enhanced OBD2 software.

Re: my airbag light is on, and scaring the crap outta me !

I wish it was mine

It does Chassis (VSC/ABS/Trac) and Body (SRS). For a few $K.

Re: my airbag light is on, and scaring the crap outta me !

hectik I had a ford taurus sho that used to do that... and I can totally relate to being worried about getting popped in the face with one of those death bags... but according to the very intelligent people above me, there shouldn't be anything to worry about IF the light is on... have you googled other xB owners experiencing this issue?

Re: my airbag light is on, and scaring the crap outta me !

The following info is for 05 models July to Dec production:
To read present SRS codes turn the ignition ON and wait 1 minute. On the underdash OBD2 connector jump terminals #4 and #13 (paper clip is fine).

The SRS light will start blinking a two digit code (may be more than one). Count flashes separated by pauses.
For example **_*** is a Code 23.
If you have more than one code, like 23 and 41 it will look like this:
**_***____****_* then it will pause for few seconds and repeat.

Re: my airbag light is on, and scaring the crap outta me !

low voltage for a period of time will trigger an SRS code.. but try to pull a code using PCH's method. GL.

Re: my airbag light is on, and scaring the crap outta me !

You can check if any of the wires ging to passenger belt buckle are broken or disconnected. If you have a multimeter check the resistance by disconnecting the switch under the seat. With belt clicked in should read 1K-1.5KOhm ad with belt off 100-500 Ohm. Do all checks with disconnected battery.
