Several vehicle models may have a problem with the OPDS (occupant position detection system) that causes the SRS indicator to stay on. Typically, one or more of these DTCs will be set:
|^ ||SRS DTC 15-1 (faulty OPDS unit or OPDS not initialized) |
|^ ||SRS DTC 15-2 (faulty side airbag indicator circuit) |
|^ ||SRS DTC 15-3 (faulty OPDS sensor) |
To ensure continued reliability with the OPDS, American Honda is extending the warranty on the OPDS unit and the OPDS sensor to 10 years or 150,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
This warranty extension does not apply to any vehicle that has ever been declared a total loss, or any that has been issued a salvage, branded, or similar title under any state's law. To check for vehicle eligibility, you must do a VIN status inquiry
