How To Reset SRS on a 1995 Honda Accord

Save

The 1995 Honda Accord four-door sedan is known for its compact size and fuel efficiency. When the SRS light turns on, there is a problem with the Accord's air bag system. To turn the warning light off, reset it using an SCS service connector. You can build your own SCS service connector, using a Honda speaker harness.

Things You'll Need

  • Honda speaker harness
  • Tape
  • Detach the plastic female disconnects from the Honda speaker harness' ends, then cut off 1/2 inch of the plastic jacket that covers the wires. Connect the wires together with tape to make an SCS Service Connector. A Metra Honda speaker harness can be purchased at Best Buy. Its model number is 72-7802.

  • Detach and pull down the MES (Memory Erase Signal) connector, a yellow component connected by two wires to the back of the fuse box on the driver's side.

  • Switch off the Accord's ignition and attach the SCS Service Connector to the MES plug.

  • Switch on the Accord's ignition and wait for the SRS light to shine for six seconds.

  • Detach the SCS Service Connector from the MES plug for four seconds. The SRS light will shine again.

  • Re-attach the SCS service connector to the MES plug within four seconds once the SRS light is lit. The SRS light will then turn off.

  • Detach the SCS Service Connector from the MES plug within four seconds. The SRS light will blink twice to show that it is reset.

  • Switch off the Accord's ignition for 10 seconds, then start the vehicle. The SRS light will turn on, then off, as usual.
