SRS is consistently on; I also check with Honda dealer. They said the seat position sensor is defective and must be replace by new one which costs $170 + tax. It's a ridiculous price. Does anyone know how to solve the problem without dealer?

had the airbag recall fixed and now the seatbelt light came on, dealer that fixed the airbag wants $99 to diagnose the problem and said it's not connected to the recall they just fixed...sorry, I think it is.

I had the air bag indicator light on dash wouldn't go off, I have the pocket scan that allows you to connect with the on board computer so you can read problems and clear the issues but it doesn't work on this. I did read one blogger specifically mention the yellow plug located under the seat can be the cause and he was dead on. It took me 1 minute to resolve issue, I located the yellow plug (male/female connector) under the drivers seat pushed it together it clicked nice and tight, air bag light is off, thanks to that blogger.
Airbag light remained on for almost a year on my 04 civic
Air bag light on Honda civic 2006 2007 2008 so called crimp in floor airbag srs harness . possible solution that worked for me dtc 34-10 0r 32-10 check yellow connector under passenger seat it may be a lose connection , push the yellow connector together if air bag light goes off, use some tape to hold the connector together so when you go over a bump in the road the yellow connector will not separate. This solution saved me $1400 good luck you may beat the stealership this way ..
When passenger sitting in passenger seat light comes on saying air bag turned off

Airbag light comes on intermittently especially after the front passenger seat has been moved to allow access to the back seat. As long as the seat is not moved the light stays off.
Airbag light won't go off, haven't diagnosed problem yet
2009 Honda Civic 71,000 mi,
My light for the side passanger airbag goes off after I start the car with no one in the seat
The airbag light (icon) stays illuminated although at first it was intermittent it is now constantly on. It appears that the back seat, passenger side is the source of the problem.

Air bag light came on suddenly and didn't go back off until the car was turned off. Had a passenger in the car as well, asked them to shift around to see if that would change anything but it didn't. I was going about 30 on a back road, no stops, no turns, no nothing. Very strange

My SRS light came on. Dealer sad it was the seatbelt sensor, and wanted $200+ to fix. Dealer said since seatbelt works even without the sensor, warranty won't cover. I have not fixed the problem yet.

Not repaired or formally diagnosed yet, but the SRS light went on last week and remains on. I was told this may prevent the deployment of airbags in an emergency, and the dealership says if it is due to buckle sensors, they will cover it for free [Feb. 2016] (other issues maybe not fixed for free, and diagnostic fee also will be assessed). I am now researching this on the advice of a relative who is an experienced dealership auto technician and fully certified. He says some issues may be fixed for free if safety related and known problems -- I am trying now to find what these may be in some official Honda statement. He also said if it is covered, the diagnostic fee should be waived. BTW, we just had the two airbags changed for the recall on 2004 Civics last year. Never had this problem before in 12 years of ownership of this vehicle.
