The 1995 Honda Accord four-door sedan is known for its compact size and fuel efficiency. When the SRS light turns on, there is a problem with the Accord's air bag system. To turn the warning light off, reset it using an SCS service connector. You can build your own SCS service connector, using a Honda speaker harness.

Step 1

Detach the plastic female disconnects from the Honda speaker harness' ends, then cut off 1/2 inch of the plastic jacket that covers the wires. Connect the wires together with tape to make an SCS Service Connector. A Metra Honda speaker harness can be purchased at Best Buy. Its model number is 72-7802.

Step 2

Detach and pull down the MES (Memory Erase Signal) connector, a yellow component connected by two wires to the back of the fuse box on the driver's side.

Step 3

Switch off the Accord's ignition and attach the SCS Service Connector to the MES plug.

Step 4

Switch on the Accord's ignition and wait for the SRS light to shine for six seconds.

Step 5

Detach the SCS Service Connector from the MES plug for four seconds. The SRS light will shine again.

Step 6

Re-attach the SCS service connector to the MES plug within four seconds once the SRS light is lit. The SRS light will then turn off.

Step 7

Detach the SCS Service Connector from the MES plug within four seconds. The SRS light will blink twice to show that it is reset.

Step 8
