honda civic 1997 airbag light on - rip
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

May or may not be related but I had engine Mgt light come on - reset by dealer for £61. Came on again within 2-3 days - disconnected battery and the light went out and has been OK since.

I know the SRS bag is important but if it is a "transient fault" disconnecting the battery for 10 mins may cure it. If it is a "real fault" in the SRS the light will stay on.

Worth a go as alll you have to lose really are the stations on the radio - make sure you have the 3 or 4 digit code for the radio.

Turn ign off for min 10 seconds

Bridge the two-pole diagnostic connector under the dash.

SRS light comes on for 6 seconds and then flashes.

Read the fault code (long flashes and short flashes - in the usual 'Japanese' format),

Make a not of fault code.

Turn ign off

Wait 10 seconds and remove connector jumper.

Connector should be at far left hand side under the dash (to the left side of the glove box). There will be two connectors dangling down togther - a two pin conn., and a 3 or 5-pin connector. its the 2-pin connector that you want.

Ive had a look under the glovebox, cannot see any loose connectors only the fan heater. Anything else i can do before taking it to a garage?
