    I think the prob is the driver's seatbelt restraint system is broken. I am selling the car for my daughter and don't want to pay hundreds at the dealer for repair. Everything else is fine. I wouldn't worry abt it if I were driving, but others might.

    Would u believe the SRS stuff is covered by lifetime warranty!!! The 800# AND the first person I talked to at our Acura dealership did not know or volunteer this!! Everything was done free -- diagnosis and new seatbelt and I'm happily ready to sell from Aurora IL (630 820-9896)!!! There is a GOD!

As you already know The Supplemental Restraint System (or SRS) is the system that controls your airbags. Unfortunately, there are MANY things that trigger this annoying light, and to making it go away can cause plenty of headaches.

Things that can cause the SRS light to turn on include:

  • Letting battery drain too low
  • Bad Sensor
  • Blown fuse
  • Unplugging the car’s battery
  • Removing the gauge cluster/installing aftermarket gauges
  • G-Force sensors that are under each of the front fenders ($250.00 each)
  • Bad clock spring (located inside your steering wheel)
  • Bad ECU
  • Bad reverse light switch on transmission
  • Car was in an accident (which is not the problem in your case)
  • Airbag defective/unplugged
  • To fix this problem, some have gone to the dealership to have the SRS computer reset. Unfortunately, this costs somewhere around $70.00..... Another option is to invest in a OBD2 Code Reader US $32.94+ on ebay most of the time the cause of this light is something simple like changing out the battery. but that could have set the code off if you reset the computer this will shut the light off and the system will be fine and save yourself a couple of grand
The Car Scanner Trouble Code Reader is for real-time automotive diagnosis based on the OBD2 protocol. By simply plugging it into your vehicles diagnostic socket, you will be able to Read any trouble codes related to the "Check Engine Light" and identify the code by consulting the manual. It will also Erase or Reset the Check Engine light. this should tell you wich sensors are out or giving a faulty signal if you do not wish to invest in an obd2 code reader call you local autozone or advance auto parts and ask if they do free obd2 readings most do and they sell the parts you are most likely going to need I hope this helps ...............good luck

SOURCE: acura rsx trunk latch stuck & won't open

could be the spring release in the lever on the trunk itself. If you can hear the acuator locking/unlocking(that is all it's ment to do) then the spring release is the problem. you need to unbolt the latch from inside the trunk and once the trunk is open you can trace from there. I had the same problem due to a minor fender bender and I just fixed mine last week.

you're right, and yes you can. Now the option is dealer($130+) or Napa( around $100), either way it's pricey, but fixes the problem.

Srs light on dashboard

There are a number of reasons the SRS light will come on for. Most commonly they are Impact Sensors, Clockspring, and Airbag Module. I don't know what sensors you replaced or what code is showing up, but you may have another bad sensor. This does happen. More likely than that is a bad connection at these sensors. Take them apart and clean all terminals. Make sure they are making good clean contact. Also check for a broken or nicked wire in the area.

Airbag and srs light stay on , on my ml270

Only a compatible scanner is going to turn this off.Don't try to do it yourself, as with any air bag/srs (supplemental restraint system), these units contain what amounts to an explosive charge, and if not handled properly, by trained folks, they can very easily cause death, ansd a nasty one at that.As long as the system detects a snag, it will continue to turn that light back on, even if you do get it turned off. The system does a circuit check soon after the car is started, on this system, and the only way to turn off that light is to fix it. Could be as simple as a clockspring, so have it checked. This is one of the only things that I'm not really willing to give much info on, due to the potential for disaster. Sorry, it's just the old grease monkey looking out for your safety. If you get it diagnosed, and have any questions about what you have been told, or anything like that, please feel free to contact me. Good luck!

Check lights such as your SRS (airbag light) have
been on vehicles for 30 years,so you should know
that ANY light on the dash requires retrieving any
codes that may be set & diagnosing from there

That isn't anything many people can do at home
You need a repair shop .

SRS-seatbelt response system, is a part of your airbag system and braking system, once you hit brakes very hard SRS makes sure that the belt is getting tight, in case of collision seatbelt gets stiff and the airbag blows up. SRS light coming on and staying for few seconds is fine as computer is checking the system, once it stays on or flashes you need top go to a garage as you might get a surprise blow in the face by the airbag.

The buckle and belt need to be replaced.  They are only good for one time during a collision.  The buckle has an explosive charge in it that causes the buckle to pull back toward the seat.  The belt does the the same.  It locks up during an accident, also so body shops can't try to reuse it.  The SRS light will stay on until they are replaced.
