We have an old Honda Fit/Jazz 2008 which we've now decided to sell since the lad has agreed that we can share his two year old Ford Ka.
Anyway, the Honda SRS airbag light started to come on permanently some weeks ago and by sheer coincidence we received a recall letter from Honda a couple of weeks ago.
Long story short, they replaced the airbag and window actuators under warranty and we were hoping that this would solve the SRS light. But no, the SRS module is faulty and the cost to replace is around AR$50,000, which is about a quarter of the car's value.
I then found a trick for erasing the SRS memory using a paperclip but that didn't work, then I removed the module, but the light stays on.
I've had a number of quotations for diagnosing the module, possibly resetting it as well, but with no guarantee that the light will go off permanently. Either way, the airbag needs to work and or the warning light needs to disappear before we sell the car.
Quotations are upwards of AR$5000, but may not solve the problem.
Any ideas, anyone?
We don't pay car tax on the Honda any more as it's over ten years old, but the running and maintenance is costly.
