My SRS light just came on today, and the way I understand it here, most people's lights came on at aroung 85,000 miles or so. Mine's at 113,000 miles, or thereabouts. Same thing, or worth taking to a dealer to get diagnosed?

I have a 2000 Honda Civic Coupe and the SRS light just came on today. The Side Airbag has been sporatically going on at random for the last 6 months. Sometimes the maintenance light will be on for a day or 2 and then go off. This is crazy.
At 112,000 miles, tomorrow I am going to check into the recall I read from earlier posts. Has anyone had all lights randomly on and off?
Should I lean towards the OPDS recall problem or should I be concerned about something else like the alternator?

My SRS warning light came on just the other day -- I have about 60k on the car.
I've been reading the comments that some posted about getting the OPDS replaced for free.
I called Honda, but they say I'm not covered after they checked the VIN... any advice? Should they provide free replacement?

Man... I wish I read this web site earlier. My wife and here sisters are currently driving back to CA from the Grand Canyon and her 2000 Honda Accord EX just died. All of her lights on here dash have been coming on when she accelerates for the last week. It sounds like its the Alternator.
It sounds like Honda should sent out a recall notice on the Alternator.
Ps... The SRS light has also been coming on. We fixed it a few months ago around 85k miles. But now its coming on again.
Now that two things to fix.
I think next time we are going to buy a Nissan.

My 2000 Accord LX V6 had a problem with the SRS last year. Apparently a problem with the driver seat belt sensor. It cost $130 to replace.
The low fuel light has not been working for a couple of years and today the low battery, doors open and hand brake lights all came on at once. Called the dealer, and they said its the alternator and will cost $325. It has only done 75000 miles and now has all these problems.
Does anyone know of any recalls on the alternator, or any other issue I should be looking into before dishing out the money??

It is also a 7 year old car. The alternator is definitely the problem here. I do not know why so many complain about an alternator on such an old car. BTW it is a Delphi part and is not as reliable as a Denso part. Simple enough. When I had my Chevrolets it would be common for one to go out every other year. However my Caprice had a police alternator which lasted 7 years.

My sons SRS light came on today 9/21/07 while driving home and suddenly hitting brakes, sliding to avoid an accident. No one was hurt or hit, when he came to a stop the light was on. We just purchased this car about a month ago from a used car lot in Indianland, SC. The car has about 108,000miles, should this be a major concern and how do we find out if his car qualifies for a recall I read some of the other Honda owners mention? His car is a 2000 Honda Accord EX

I'm so happy I came to this site. I too have a 2000 Honda Accord EX with about 60,000 miles. The SRS light has been on for almost 6 months now. Just was going to ignore it, don't have the money to fix it. The maintenance light flashes on when I start the car and then goes off. Does this mean something? I see that the SRS is covered under the extended warranty or recall. I don't remember a light for my fuel either, or it's been too long off. How much does an alternator cost? Can I just leave the SRS light on, I mean it's just a sensor, right? Oh, my gas cover failed the Ohio EPA test. I think all this has to do with a dead/getting a new battery too. No problem until I let the battery die and boy was it dead. Thanks.

Re: All lights on dash; I had filled the car with gas and started it, then all the dash lights came on and the engine died. I checked everything I could think of (steering wheel locked, shift in park securely, read the book) but it finally, after trying several minutes, started, just before calling for a tow truck.
Two months later, the SRS light came on and has remained on. I have 58,500 (approximately) on the car that I bought when it had just over 12,000 miles on it. Is the statement one writer made "The air bags won't deploy if the light is on," true?

I have 2000 Honda Accord with 95,000 miles. I change oil every 3,000 miles and have them check for other problem. Maintenance light was flashing for few days when I turned the car on each time. Oil change was done and now the light is staying on. When I bought the used car, manual was missing. But there is a way to turn the maintenance light off. If someone can tell me how to do that?
I had SRS light problem also and one dealer told me it would cost $650 after resetting many times. I went to another dealership and it was fixed free since it was under warranty.

Re:how to turn off the maintenance light.
You have to turn your car off, press and hold down the sensor reset button on the dash and turn the car on. hold for about 10 sec and it should turn off. just did it for my car b/c mechanic did not do it for me. I'm having problem with the srs light, saw your comment and thought i'd help you out. good luck.

I have a 2000 Accord EX-V6. It has 240,000 miles on it. I maintain it well and it's been good to me in return. I had the SRS problem a little over a year ago. Took it into the dealership and they replaced the seatbelt buckle for free. Been through the every light comes on, time to change the alternator also. The one I cannot figure out is the low fuel light. Replaced the bulb, but it still doesn't work. I'd be interested in the fix if anyone knows.

My Honda dealership in Springfield MO followed Service Bulletin 06-099 to the letter. The inspection was free. And if one of three codes popped up on their diagnostic computer, the repair would be free. They said only if a code appeared not covered under the extended warranty on this bulletin, then they would give us an estimate of the cost to repair. Regardless, the inspection is free. Go into the dealer armed with copy of this bulletin and have them show you the codes that pop up on their computer.

I have a 2000 Honda Accord EX V6, and my odometer and my back lights don't work. My brake lights are fine and working properly. Also, The indicator lights on my dash to show if the heat or air conditioning is on cuts off and on all the time. So I can turn the knob to how high I want it but it doesn't always blow what I want and the light does not always come on. Does anyone know why. I have 135+ miles on it.
