    Do you know the extent of the collision damage and what was done pertaining to the SRS SYSTEM for repairs? What is E-P unit? Not familiar with that abbreviation. Honda does list a DTC '76-61' and I don't have listings for Acura , what is 76-61?...................HELLO????????????

    Tanx, i replaced the streering airbag, driver seat belt and the airbag module. the passenger side was impacted in the collision. E-P is the E-Prentioneer unit,76-61 is the error code from dealer diagnosis code. hope this answered your question and thanks again

    Is the dealer the one replacing the parts or are you? Still don't have a clear idea of 76-61. Sometimes after certain parts replacements systems may need to be 'calibrated' with a scanner that communicates with the SRS control module , has that been done?
