yes an obd2 scanner that has the ability to access the srs system alot of the code readers at the parts stores only communicate with the ecu.

we are talking about srs (supplemental restraint system) not abs (antilock brake system)

the honda scanner at the stealership

will handle both ABS and SRS codes/lights, which 90% of off-the-shelf scanners will not do....doing a hard reset on the car by pulling the battery cable and/or main/acc fuse will not do it either....unless you disconnect the SRS ECU, but then u have no urrbags...sorry man
