    The other day my SRS light just went off on a 2000 Accord. I went to a shop and the guy suggested I just go to the dealer and check it out. However, the dealers charge so much and Im really broke. Anyone has any clue? Or should I just cough up.

    You can take off the airbags and look for like loose wires or something but for the most part what i've seen the plugs and wires are pretty snug. Did you mess with anything lately? Usually the light only comes on when something is not hooked up. If your not good with wiring I would probably just pay the dealer to diagnose what the problem is.

    You should probably just take it in if you don't feel confident in taking off the airbags and checking all the connections. One other thing you could maybe try before you take it to the dealer is to reset the srs light and see if it comes back on.

    1. remove negative battery terminal

    2. unplug airbags (yellow plugs under steering column & under glove box)

    3. remove srs bulb from gauge cluster


    problem fixed! :D

    :no:
    NO. that is NOT how disabling air bags is done. if you did it that way, watch your nose.

    There are terminators that must be installed on the end of the circuits.

    JDM 00 Accord?? GAY!! Its like taking an Odessey and making it JDM. You JDM Whore!
    Anyway, removing the lights and shit is illegal right? Thats what the guy at the shop said. Also, if i reset the SRS light is the illegal? If something is really wrong it would go back on right?

    I don't think its illegal to reset the srs light. I've done it before with cars i had that had airbags taken out cause even after you put a new bag in you still have to reset the light.
