Additional Information About Your SRS

How the SRS Indicator Light

Works

The purpose of the SRS

light is to alert you to a

potential problem with your
Supplemental Restraint System.

When you turn the ignition ON (II),
this indicator will light briefly then
go out. This tells you that the system

is working properly.

If the light comes on at any other
time, or does not come on at all, you
should have the system checked by

your dealer. For example:

If the SRS indicator light does not
come on after you turn the ignition
ON (II).

If the light stays on after the
engine starts.

If the light comes on or flashes on
and off while you drive.

If you see any of these indications,

your airbags may not deploy when
you need them. See your Acura

dealer as soon as possible.

SRS Service

Your Supplemental Restraint System

is virtually maintenance-free, and
there are no parts you can safely

service. However, you must have

your car serviced if:

Your airbags ever inflate. The

airbags and the control unit must
be replaced. Do not try to remove
or replace the airbags yourself.

This must be done by an Acura

dealer or a knowledgeable body
shop.

The SRS indicator light alerts you
to a problem.
Take your car to an

authorized Acura dealer as soon as
possible. If you ignore this
indication, the airbags might not
inflate when you need them.

Driver and Passenger Safety

S R S

Ignoring the SRS indicator light

can result in serious injury or
death if the airbags do not

inflate when needed.

Have your vehicle checked by a

dealer as soon as possible if
the SRS light alerts you to a
potential problem.

Additional Safety Precautions

Do not attempt to deactivate your
airbags. Together, airbags and

seat belts provide the best

protection in a moderate to severe
frontal collision.

Do not tamper with SRS
components or wiring for any
reason. Tampering could cause
the airbags to deploy, possibly
causing very serious injury.

See page

131

for further information

and precautions relating to your SRS.

Carbon Monoxide Hazard

Your car’s exhaust contains carbon

monoxide gas. You should have no
problem with carbon monoxide

entering the car in normal driving if

you maintain your car properly.

Have the exhaust system inspected
for leaks whenever:

The car is raised for an oil change.

You notice a change in the sound

of the exhaust.

The car was in an accident that

may have damaged the underside.

High levels of carbon monoxide can
collect rapidly in enclosed areas,
such as a garage. Do not run the
engine with the garage door closed.
Even with the door open, run the
engine only long enough to move the

vehicle out of the garage.

With the hatch open, air flow can

pull exhaust gas into your car’s
interior and create a hazardous
condition. If you must drive with the
hatch open, open all the windows
and set the heating and cooling

system as shown below.

If you must sit in your parked car,
even in an unconfined area, with the
engine running, adjust the heating
and cooling system as follows:

1. Select the Fresh Air mode.

2. Select the mode.
3. Turn the fan on high speed.
4. Set the temperature control to a

comfortable setting.

Driver and Passenger Safety

Carbon monoxide gas is toxic.

Breathing it can cause
unconsciousness and even kill

you.

Avoid any enclosed areas or
activities that expose you to
carbon monoxide.

Indicator Lights

The instrument panel has many

indicators to give you important
information about your car.

Low Fuel Indicator

This light comes on as a reminder

that you must refuel soon.

Seat Belt Reminder Light

This indicator lights when you turn
the ignition switch ON (II). It is a

reminder to you and your passengers
to protect yourselves by fastening
the seat belts. A beeper also sounds
if you have not fastened your seat
belt.

If you do not fasten your seat belt,
the beeper will stop after a few
seconds but the light stays on until

you do. Both the light and the beeper

stay off if you fasten your seat belt
before turning on the ignition.

Parking Brake

and Brake

System

Indicator

This light has two functions:

1. This indicator comes on when you

turn the ignition switch ON (II). It
is a reminder to check the parking
brake. Driving with the parking
brake not fully released can
damage the brakes and tires.

2. If the indicator remains lit after

you have fully released the
parking brake while the engine is
running, or if it comes on while

driving, it can indicate a problem

in the brake system. For complete
information, see page

241

Indicator Lights

Turn Signal and

Hazard Warning

Indicators

The left or right turn signal light

blinks when you signal a lane change

or turn. If the light does not blink or

blinks rapidly, it usually means one

of the turn signal bulbs is burned out

(see page

210

). Replace the bulb as

soon as possible, since other drivers
cannot see that you are signalling.

When you turn on the Hazard
Warning switch, both turn signal

lights blink. All turn signals on the
outside of the car should flash.

Cruise Control Indicator

Only on models equipped with Cruise
Control System

Fuel Gauge

This shows how much fuel you have.

It is most accurate when the car is on
level ground. It may show slightly
more or less than the actual amount

when you are driving on curvy or
hilly roads.

The gauge stays at the same fuel

level reading after you turn off the
ignition. When you add fuel, the
gauge slowly changes to the new
reading after you turn the ignition

switch back ON (II).

Temperature Gauge

This shows the temperature of the

engine’s coolant. During normal
operation, the pointer should rise
from the bottom white mark to about
the middle of the gauge. In severe
driving conditions, such as very hot

weather or a long period of uphill

driving, the pointer may rise to near
the upper white mark. If it reaches

the red (Hot) mark, pull safely to the

side of the road. Turn to page
