SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS)
The Acura RSX SRS includes a driver’s airbag in the steering wheel hub, a passenger’s airbag in the dashboard above
the glove box, seat belt tensioners in the front seat belt retractors, seat belt buckle tensioners in the front seat belt
buckles, and side airbags in the front seat-backs. Information necessary to safely service the SRS is included in this
Service Manual. Items marked with an asterisk ( ) on the contents page include or are located near SRS components.
Servicing, disassembling, or replacing these items require special precautions and tools, and should be done only by
an authorized Acura dealer.
• To avoid rendering the SRS inoperative, which could lead to personal injury or death in the event of a severe frontal
or side collision, all SRS service work must be performed by an authorized Acura 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 or impact the SRS unit, front impact sensors, side impact sensors whenever the ignition switch is
ON (II), or for at least 3 minutes after the ignition switch is turned OFF. Otherwise, the system may fail in a collision,
or the airbags may deploy.
• SRS electrical connectors are identified by yellow color 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.
