you should have reset it first to see if it returns to get an accurate
also consider getting a code reader/resetter - they're inexpensive, and
in this day and age, pretty much indispensable.
this is about the cheapest:
feel free to get a better one though!
I had an SRS light on my 2003 Civic last Fall. I learned how to read
the code and re-set it using tools I made at home for under $10. I do
not want to send you to the procedure for reading the code for the
Civic, because it is likely different for your Accord. But the ehow
procedure for re-setting should be fine. I have seen this re-set
procedure reported elsewhere.
You can reset it with a paper clip. See
I had an SRS light and code last autumn on my 2003 Civic. For under
$10 I made my own tools for re-setting and reading the code. See
http://sites.google.com/site/hondalioness/srs . It is a different
connector for reading codes. Still, do not use the procedure for
reading codes on Civics on your Accord. I am only sure the re-set
procedure for Civics and Accords is the same. Reading codes may be
different, and you do not want to mess something up.
Correction: Reading codes is the same, regardless of which model of
Honda it is, as long as the connector is OBD2 yada. All these sites
