Introduction

Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)

   

This model has an SRS which includes a driver's airbag in the steering wheel hub and a passenger's airbag in the dashboard above the glove box and seat belt tensioners in the front seat belt retractors, seat belt buckle tenioners in the front seat belt buckles and side airbags in the front seat-backs. Information necessary to safely service the SRS is included in the '01 Civic Shop Manual, P/N 62S5A00. Items marked with an asterisk (*) on the contents page include, or are located near SRS components. Servicing, disassembling or replacing these items will require special precautions and tools and should therefore be done by an authorised Honda dealer.

  • To avoid rendering the SRS inoperative, which could lead to personal injury or death in the event of a severe frontal collision, all SRS service work must be performed by an authorised Honda dealer.
  • Improper service procedures, including incorrect removal and installation of the SRS, could lead to personal injury caused by unintentional deployment of the airbags and/or side airbags.
  • Do not bump the SRS unit. Otherwise, the system may fail in a collision, or airbags may deploy when the ignition switch is ON (II).
  • SRS electrical wiring harnesses are identified by yellow colour coding. Related components are located in the steering column, front console, dashboard, dashboard lower panel, in the dashboard above the glove box, in the front seats and around the floor. Do not use electrical test equipment on these circuits
