1991 Acura NSX: Getting to the Bottom of the Airbag Issue

May 01, 2012


After an initial estimate from our local Acura dealer to fix the SRS warning light in our NSX we decided to get a second opinion. This time we went to Autowave in Huntington Beach, a local Acura/Honda specialist. It also happens to be well versed in the ways of the NSX.

They agreed to take a look and seemed familiar with the problem. Later that day I got a call from Shane who said that the SRS control unit was indeed bad as the dealer had originally diagnosed. He had already done a little research and was able to source a replacement for a few hundred dollars. Combined with the labor involved to install and test the new part, the bill from Autowave was still going to be less than half what the dealer was asking. Needless to say, we're going to give it a shot. We'll let you know how it goes when the part arrives.
