Air bag light came on intermittently, then stayed on. When to Honda dealer in yorba linda, CA. Dealer tested srs system, no errors on diagnostic code. Only thing dealer said was to return and leave car for several days, that they had no idea what is causing this. Dealer also said would be at my expense if they found anything wrong and for time to investigate. I have not returned.
Nothing happened. During the past few months, the airbag (red light) indicator light comes on the dashboard warning system and will not go off. This is intermittent, but certainly a cause for concern based on the recent recalls. Who will fix this for me?.

Airbag passenger light kept staying on longer and longer, eventually turns off. At 114,xx light stayed on then soon after airbag light indicator on dash was illuminated. There are no accidents on the vehicle. No repairs or modifications to affect system. I took the vehicle to dealer since it was out of warranty by 3 months. I did tell them about the intermittent issues but assumed all was well. They did a diagnostic that took well over 4 hours to isolate the possible issue. Dealer's response; after pin testing fuse box found bad pss fuse/ relay box. Was told to sign a waiver to drive my own vehicle out the lot. The entire airbag system is down and will not work until repaired. I was in shock to know that if I had an accident my family and I could be in grave danger, they said they have no idea how long it could of not been working. I called Honda America to complain case# n012014-10-0900059. They said the car is too old and out of warranty for them to cover the repair. I have since parked the car and have'nt driven it since. This is our 7th Honda and never would expect this type of service or reliability on this vehicle.
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.
My vehicle's airbag light has been coming on and off since July 2014. Until recently (end of November 2014), I had no idea about the manufacturer's recall. In today's world, businesses are not even trying to be responsible towards their customers and try to charge for airbag light checking or replacement. To prove it, even during the major national recall for Honda airbag, the Honda dealer: columbus, germain Honda of dublin 6715 sawmill rd dublin, OH 43017 united states declines service. They initially denied service saying that there is no recall open for my vehicle by the VIN number, then she said that it was already taken care of sometimes in 2004. We have owned the car since 2005 and we never had it repaired for this problem. I want to prevent an accident and not look for trouble, but it is difficult to be proactive when the dealers want to charge you even when there is a well-known nationwide recall for the very problem you are reporting. Please help with making it easier for customers to have their cars repaired without having to fight for it or convince the dealers that it is their responsibility. Thank you!.

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.

Srs indicator on the instrument panel goes on and off intermittently.
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.
