Customer Question
My son just purchased...

My son just purchased a 2011 Honda Accord EX-L Coupe. The SRS light and tire pressure light are permanently lit. The tires have been checked and are fine - how can he reset the light?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked your tire pressure? Do you have a tire gauge?

Yes, the tires have been checked and are all fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?

He was hoping there was a reset for the tire light

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

He is more concerned about the airbag light. He checked the VIN on the government website and it says 0 recalls - is it possible for him to reset the light himself, or should he take it back to the dealer?

the light only comes on when there is a failure in the air bag system..so you just cant reset it

do you have a enhanced scan tool that can pull air bag codes?

If he takes it to an auto parts store - will they be able to pull air bag codes, or does he need to take it to a Honda dealer?

if the parts store has a enhanced scan tool with air bag functions they can

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
