DIY: SRS light reset

Here are some simple instructions on how to turn off the SRS light. The SRS light will stay on if you have the key in the "run" or "on" position & remove the wire under the seat or mess w/ any of the SRS components. When the light is on, there is a problem w/ one or more of the SRS components & the system is disabled. If after these instructions the light still comes on, have your vehicle checked immediately @ your local dealer. You may need to do this more than once, be patient, it's not very hard. Remember, your dealership will charge you to turn off the SRS light

***This works on all 02-05 EP3 & 01-05 ES1/EM. May work on other generations of Civic's & Acura's also.***
Here we go:

Here is the under dash panel, located directly under the steering column. Remove it.

This is the under dash fuse panel. It's just to the right of the steering shaft behind the center console.

All you need is a paper clip, bend it in 1/2 & insert it into the YELLOW SRS service connector(not the actual fuse panel).

1- W/ the igniton switch "off", insert the paper clip ito the connector

2- Turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position.

3- The SRS light will come on for 6sec & then turn off. Remove the paperclip w/in 4sec of the SRS light turning off.

4- The SRS light will turn on again. Re-connect the paperclip w/in 4sec of the SRS light turning on.

5- The SRS light will turn off. Remove the paperclip w/in 4sec.

6- The SRS light indicates that the memory is erased by blinking twice.

7- Turn the ignition switch to the "OFF" position, wait for 10-seconds & it's done.

***Be sure to put the service connector back on the fuse panel, don't just leave it hanging***

I dont know why anyone would sacrifice safety for style by changing there steering wheel to an aftermarket unit without airbag, especially on car that is daily driven.

Quick question: on a completely stock Civic (2002), would this enable the SRS system?
Or does it just get rid of the light? Does anyone know conclusively?
