Takata recall: I took my car in to get the airbag replaced per the recall notice. My airbag malfunction light came on just after the replacement. I took the car back and they wanted $125 just to diagnose the problem. A garage said it was the seat belt buckle causing the problem. In the manual it clearly states that "Honda will repair or replace, at its option, any Honda seat belt component that fails to function properly during its normal use. This includes all parts and labor charges." My greenwich, ct Honda said they had never heard of this warranty and they would not honor it. I called Honda America, 2 people said it was covered, the final person said no. I have read forums and talked to many others, as you can see that have this problem. It is a safety issue and my airbags will not deploy in an accident. If it is the sensor, that is a component of the seat belt. It is clearly faulty on these cars. On forums many people have had this problem and some Honda have fixed it free of charge, and others will not. My garage gave me a quote of $282 for part and $95 labor.

Both driver and passenger seats did not restraint occupants in a three car accident. CRV hit from behind. CRV hit car ahead. Driver chest hit steering wheel. Passenger hit window and dash. Relatively low speed accident. Air bags did not deploy. Seats belts ended up extended and stuck in this position. Seat belts will now not retract.

The contact owns a 2005 Honda CR-V. upon starting the vehicle she noticed a red light illuminating on the dashboard. While having the vehicle serviced for routine maintenance by an independent mechanic she was informed that the seat belt sensor failed and the air bags would not deploy in the event of a crash. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 77,989 and the current mileage was 102,000.

The SRS (safety restraint system) warning light came on in my 2005 Honda CRV with less than 18,000 miles on it. The light will not go out. The car has never been in an accident. The Honda dealer has performed diagnostic tests that indicate that nothing is wrong and the air bags should deploy and seat belts should work in an accident. Who do I believe -- the warning light or the diagnostic tests. I don't like driving a car that has a warning light indicating something is wrong with a safety system.
