Hello I will help you with your question,
There is a central control module (SRS computer) that keeps track of the airbags, seat belts and wiring that can be triggered in the event one of the sensors detects a crash. This module has stored trouble codes that will point to what has failed in the system so the correct part can be repaired or replaced.
It may be the module itself, the wiring or something like the clockspring connector that connects the airbag on the steering wheel to the computer.
Have the stored code read at a shop, the OBD readers at the autoparts stores will not read this or you can try to count the flashes of the warning light when the test connector is jumpered.
If you want to try to pull the code yourself use the procedure below

I asked Where the SRS Module is Located in the 1996 Honda Odyssey. ( I can't find the SRS Module Itself !!!!
( Also, do you know if it happens to use the same SRS Module as the 1996 Honda Accord with the 2.2 Liter Motor?)
The module location is below, replacing it will not help your problem as I explained above. You cannot use a replacement module from the Accord.
Have you pulled the trouble code so you can find out what the real problem is?
OK, if that is the code you may have to replace the module to clear it, I wanted you to get the code first as there are so many other possibilities.
If you open the picture I posted above of the location you will see the module and the location next to the throttle pedal.
The 9-2 code refers to the power supply to the module so if the battery is disconnected fro an extended period or the wiring to the module is damaged or has a loose connection this code will set. It is NOT always the module that needs to be replaced.
The troubleshooting that HAS to be done prior to replacing the module is below.
Let me know how I can help you
The procedure above is to troubleshoot the 9-2 code as it is not likely to be the module that failed.
