    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 ..

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
