Honda Accord owners have reported 182 problems related to air bag light on (under the air bag category).
As I was driving to work the car started slipping, then as I arrived to my destination the car wouldn't go into gear at all. The car was overheating, as I called for service after work I tried starting the car again and it did go into gear. I drove it to the place for service but having to stop and let car cool down a couple times on the way there. They told me it's the trasmission and will need a new one, or have it repaired. Now I'm aware of many 2003 Accords with the same problem, there should be a recall on this! I've owned 4 Honda cars and all from brand new vehicles and never a problem like this before. I have had this problem one other time of not going into gear, but it came out of it after it was cooled and sitting for a few hours, so never had that problem again until now. We don't drive this car very much as I work from my home, so it didn't go out until now. I'm told we must drive it little, which is true, and not hard on our vehicles at all, beacuse this would have happened much earlier if we had. Also the air bag lights come on randomly with no reason, we had it tested and they said it was fine, humidity? that's another one to be recalled! Honda, you need to help us and recall the faults that you know are an issue if you want us to continue buying your vehicles! a used to be loyal Honda owner for all my life.

The srs indicator stays on permanent and the brakes have to change again after only 6 months. Called Honda headquarters and was told that there was a recall for srs in 2011 but my VIN number was not on the recall list and the my vechicle is out of warranty. I bought my car as a used car at herb chambers in 2010 and the According to them the car was already out of warranty. I need them to call the dealership and have me take the car in for diagnostic and have the issue fixed without me absorbing the cost.

I bought the car new with very low mileage (maybe 200 miles). From the time I bought it or very shortly afterwards, the red air bag light was lit on the dashboard. I thought it was normal because it was a brand new car. Then I started focusing on it and noticed that sometimes it wasn't on but most of the time it was. I inquired about it when I took it in for the 5,000 mile oil change and was told there was faulty wiring and the air bag unit needed to be replaced.

Summary: there was a premature failure of the srs module in my 2008 Honda Accord which, According to a local Honda representative, renders the airbags useless in a crash or can cause premature deployment. The airbag light was on as well as the engine light which the dealership mentioned they were both related. Charging a diagnostics fee when I had already performed the diagnostics through work and associated partnerships (fleet management provider and maintenance vendors). I had to pay out of pocket close to $640 for parts and labor. Seems silly as this was a safety related service. My engine light was on about 4 months ago and they said the light was on due to my cadallic convertor, so they replaced and now the engine light is back on and this is due to airbag issue.
When the vehicle is started the airbag light in the dash doesn't always go out. This is intermittent, occurs more often on rainy days, and when serviced mechanic said it was probably the sensor, but when put on diagnostic machine, said nothing was wrong. Now there's a recall but only in humid states(?). What on earth is rain but high humidity? additionally I bought all of my Hondas (3) used so I don't know if they were originally sold in a "known humid state".
My air bag light stays on. My passenger airbag light that says "off" is always illuminated. Recently, my "side air bag light" stays on for about a minute after my car is on. It did not do this before.
I was driving my car and my transmission started slipping. I keep up with all of the scheduled maintenance for this car. I got the transmission rebuilt and now less then 3 months later the car is starting to jerk again and the drive light on the dash is starting to blink. I also have this error code that won't go away saying there is something wrong with the fuel tank. I got the gas knob changed and the error goes away but when you hook the computer up to it, the code still comes up. The air bag light also comes on and off when it wants to.

Airbag light would come on after car warms up intermittantly, and stays on permanently on colder days it takes longer to turn on but eventually it will.
I went into a Honda dealer for the air bag recall, twice. My airbag light however keeps lighting up. I believe that there is another issue going on that has not been addressed. In addition, the paint coating on the car is coming off, fading, and all with significant damage to the overall quality of the car. I see paint coming off from similar vehicles in my area. I believe that both the air bags and paint should be addressed.

I purchased a brand new 2013 Accord ex-l on Tuesday morning, during the test drive I noticed the air bag light on, I was told OH this is the passenger air bag deactivation light, as this car has so many features I thought ok, loved the car and bought it, then before I pulled off the lot I read the book and it said this was to total falure of the srs system air bags, I went back in to the dealership and told them, they took it back to the service dept. And 11 hours later they said the airbag unit in the seering wheel had failed and because this is a saftey issue I could leave with the car we will give you a rental, and I could pick my car up in a day or 2, I said ok, then that day turned into another then another, then after me driving back to the dealer ship and waiting another 4 hours while they figured out what to do I was told that the part Honda has not even realeased yet, and the realese date is June 4th, I was livid, I told them they need to put me in another one, that this was very unprofesional because this was the 4th Honda I got from them, they told me they like to try and fix it, I said by the time I get it my first payment on the car would almost be due, they said well let me see if we can figure something out, call us next wednsday and talk to them again, I am so mad that Honda does not even make these parts available on a car that has been out for 8 months, I left in teh rental and called Honda and was told they normally do this on newr cars, but we will give you call back after the holiday, to date still waiting on my car that I have never even got to take home, someone needs to inform Honda that they need to have these part available when the cars are. Very disapointed in them. Please contact Honda about this issue. . . Thank you.

Driver side airbag light stayed on unexpected. . (sometime on, sometime off).
I've noticed a faultiness with the airbag light indicator/sensor. After the engine is started, the light stays on and continues to stay on until I restart the engine, at which time the light may or may not turn off. This happens whether there is a passenger present in the passenger's seat or not. The light faultiness happens at random. Though many models of Honda Accords have been covered under a recall for the same issue, Honda is telling me my specific vehicle is not covered. This is a dangerous issue that can affect the airbag deployment, causing full-force deployment regardless of seat position.
I have noticed the air bag light comes on, took it to Honda dealership and they told me that the code is 61-10. They would order the seat belt part (special order). I was under the impression that seat belts would be covered by the warranty for the life of the car. Dealers told me "it's electrical problem in the seat belt, not mechanical" and Honda does not cover this even the language in the warranty does not express this at all. I was very disappointed how Honda would not honor the warranty. Wondering how they received high marks for customer relations. The only recourse I have is spend the $260. 00 and never, never buy another Honda again !.
Our airbag light keeps coming on. We are told that the airbags are inoperable when the light is on. We have had it in for repairs 6 times over the last 5 months. We have spent over $1,100 and still the airbag light comes back on. Srs code 32-80 - Honda dealer is unable to diagnose problem. We were told that american Honda motor company has record of multiple incidences of this code with no know resolution. This is dangerous and a serious safety issue. This is our primary car and we cannot afford to keep pouring money in with no results! we need our airbags to work!.
Airbag light stayed on without accident. I brought it to dealership and they did a diagnostic scan. The guy said driver positon sensor harness is broken. I researched this problem and its look like this a common problem with Honda. I called Honda and they said the VIN is not included in the recall. Honda must be increase the scope of the recall!!!.

To whom it may concern: there is a huge safety problem with the passenger air bag sensor in my car. The passenger seat airbag indicator lights comes on intermittently when no items are in the seat, and occasionally comes when items are in the seat. The seat definitely has a short in it and I am concerned about it not working properly if I am involved in an accident. ## VIN passed ##.

Srs indicator light came on the dashboard while driving. Took the vehicle to a local Honda dealer and was told that they were not able to perform any diagnostic as the srs unit has failed and was not communicating with the system. I had to pay $482 to replace the srs unit. Although the vehicle is out of warranty, it has less than 36,000 miles on it and the srs unit replacement should have been covered by Honda.

The air bag warning indicator is illuminated spontaneously regardless if the vehicle was in motion or at start-up and whether the front passenger seat was occupied or unoccupied. The recall 07v001000 (air bags: frontal: sensor/control module) does not include my VIN.
My air bag light was lit,I took it to Honda they re-set something, 5 minutes later as I was leaving it lit up again. Took it back they said they had to do diagnostics, ordered a wiring harness,installed that. I drove to florida and back 1300 miles round trip and the light is back on meaning my bags will not deploy. I have had a very difficult time getting this addressed. Honda (apple tree in fletcher , nc) had my car from tue-sat and I had to rent a car due to their negligence. Now I have to drive back over there 1 1/2 hour drive one way and see what is going on. I noticed there have been similar issues, but that my VIN was not covered. Please advise. I am still driving an unsafe car and have spent countless hours going back and forth and paying for a rental car.
Car was running fine. No problems. All of a sudden the airbag light came on. I stopped the car and checked the seat on the passenger side and seat belts trying to figure out why it was on. I got back into the car and continued home. When slowing to turn into driveway a loud banging noise occured. The car was put in park and immediately started rolling backwards. This could have been a hazard if a car had been passing by or if this had happened in busy traffic. I could have rolled back and hurt someone, hurt myself or rolled back into oncoming trafic. Also if someone had been walking behind the car and gotten ran over and killed. Anyway it was later towed to a dealer and diagnostics ran. The dealer informed me that I needed a new transmission. That is not right. My car was like new with a little over 68 thousand miles on it. I still owe on it and purchased it brand new. Honda should be responsible for this. Since this has happened to me and I have begun to research this I found a ton of recalls for this same problem, yet I am told my car is a 6 cylinder and is not under recall. Please help. I was told it would cost me 4400 plus $ to replace the transmission. Honda should be responsible for this cost.
