Why is the SRS red warning light on after i disconnected and reconnected the battery

Asked by Dec 05, 2015 at 04:01 PM about the 2000 Honda CR-V EX AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had to remove the battery to have it charged. I re-connected the battery but
now the red SRS warning light is on. How do I clear it.

1 Answer


The airbag computer has detected a problem in the airbag system. It will clear itself once the problem is fixed. The airbags will NOT deploy, even in a collision with the light on. Check the fuse(s) for the airbag system. One may have blown during the battery R&R. Other than that, unless you're familiar with the airbag system, do NOT attempt to diagnose and repair it yourself. Without the proper knowledge and tools you can accidentally deploy the airbags and be seriously injured or even killed! Best to leave it to a pro unless it's a fuse. HTH. -Jim
