Honda Element owners have reported 4 problems related to warning light on (under the air bag category).
The srs warning light came on. About 3 weeks later Honda issued a partial recall on 2003 Element airbags. I called Honda and was told my vehicle was not covered. In looking into the recall I see that it is for vehicles in hotter climates. I think it should be extended to all climates.

2004 Honda Element. Consumer states the air bag warning light illuminated. When the consumer arrived at the dealership to have a recall performed on the ignition, he was informed by the dealer that they would not accept responsibility for passive restraint systems unless it met the implied warranty prerequisites. The consumer stated he had to pay for a problem in the past, that incorrectly reported a problem that did not exist. The consumer is now wondering will he have to pay for the air bag light problem.
