Expert:  John G. replied 4 years ago.

Hi, There is a procedure you can do with just a simple jumper wire that will reset the light. If there is still a failure active, the light will come back on however.

What year is the van?

Honda 2000

Ok find the MES connector in the fuse box under the drivers side dash.

Sustitute a jumper wire or a paper clip for the special tool to short the two terminals together as instructed below.
  • To erase the DTC(s) from the SRS unit, use the HDS or follow this procedure.

    1. Make sure the ignition switch is OFF.

    1. Connect the SCS service connector (A) to the MES connector (2P) (B). Do not use a jumper wire.

    2. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

    3. The SRS indicator will come on for about 6 seconds, and then go off. Remove the SCS service connector from the MES connector within 4 seconds after the indicator goes off.

    4. The SRS indicator will come on again. Reconnect the SCS service connector to the MES connector within 4 seconds after the indicator comes on.

    5. When the SRS indicator goes off, remove the SCS service connector from the MES connector within 4 seconds.

    6. The SRS indicator will blink two times indicating that the memory has been erased.

    7. Turn the ignition switch OFF, and wait for 10 seconds.

    8. Turn the ignition switch ON (II) again. The SRS is OK if the SRS indicator comes on for 6 seconds, and then goes off.

    Expert:  John G. replied 4 years ago.
    As I said before, the scs jumper is simply a jumper wire with a connector on it to make it easier. Since you do not have one, the jumper wire is the only alternative.
    I never said don't mess with it.
    The MES is the connector you need to jump to get the light off.
