2002 RL SRS light on

My 02 RL3.5 Red SRS light is on after the "side air bag" yellow light flashed a few times occasionally. I am not sure how to turn it off or what the fix may be. Any help is appreciated. Also, Not as important however just like the 98RL that I had occasionally when turning the key to start the car nothing happens and have to turn off/back on until it starts. The previous owner had the same issue and had the starter replaced. It looks like that didn't help.

The not starting all the time may be something as simple as corroded battery terminals or cables. It pays to check the simple things first, however, with the SRS light/side airbag issue if you don't have a code scanner I would go to an auto parts store. I know Autozone, Advance Auto, and Pep Boys stores will scan your car for codes for free and they may find a fault code set for the SRS system.

Could be a slow recognition of the key by the theft protection system. Try turning to the "on" position then waiting for a couple of seconds prior to turning to "start". I've had this behavior for the past few years with my 98 RL, and several others have reported it also.

Hey have you read the SRS code? All you need is a paper clip. If the SRS code is related to a seat belt, the Honda dealership ought to replace it for free. If it's related to the OPDS Sensor and/or Unit, you can check the OPDS Unit part number easily in the back of your seat to see if it needs the upgraded part.
