Report: Airbag Light Due to Failed Occupant Position Sensor
Honda Civic Problem
Average Mileage: 52,633 mi (21,000 mi - 101,000 mi)
The airbag warning light (SRS) may illuminate due to a defective occupant position sensor. Honda has a recall campaign to replace defective sensors on affected cars.

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.
