  2. Do the FRONT PASSENGER’S WEIGHT SENSOR INITIALIZATION. Refer to the procedure below.
  3. Confirm SRS operation by turning the vehicle to the ON mode, and check that the SRS indicator comes on for about 6 seconds and then goes off.
  4. Install all removed parts in the reverse order of removal. Refer to the service information.

 

YAW RATE-ACCELERATION NEUTRAL POSITION MEMORIZATION

 

NOTES

  • The VSA sensor neutral position must be learned whenever you do any of these actions:
  • Update or replace the VSA modulator-control unit.
  • Update or replace the SRS unit.
  • Removing and installing the steering wheel.
  • Disconnecting and reconnecting the steering joint.
  • Wheel alignment.
  1. Connect the HDS.
  2. Start the VSA sensor neutral position procedure.

 

NOTE

Do not press the brake pedal during this procedure.

  1. Set the steering wheel in the straight ahead position.
  2. Select ADJUSTMENT from ABS/VSA menu with the HDS, then select ALL SENSOR, and follow the screen prompts.

 

FRONT PASSENGER’S WEIGHT SENSOR INITIALIZATION

 

NOTES

  • When you replace or update the SRS unit, initialize the front passenger’s weight sensor with the HDS.
  • When you replace or remove the front passenger’s weight sensor, the front passenger’s seat frame, or the front passenger’s seat rail, initialize the front passenger’s weight sensor with the HDS.
  1. Connect the HDS to the vehicle.
  2. Front Passenger’s Weight Sensor – Initialize

 

NOTES

  • Before doing this procedure, clear the DTCs.
  • Before doing this procedure, make sure the 12 volt battery is fully charged.
  • Make sure the front passenger’s seat and all components of the seat are correctly installed.
  • Make sure nothing is on the front passenger’s seat, including aftermarket seat covers or mats.
  • Make sure there is nothing in the front passenger’s seat-back pocket.
  • Make sure the vehicle is on level ground.
  • When you perform this procedure, the vehicle temperature must be between 41 – 113 °F (5 – 45°C).
  • When the vehicle is exposed to intense cold or intense heat, move the vehicle inside, open the windows and moonroof (if equipped) and perform this procedure after one hour or more.
  • Do not expose the front passenger’s seat to sudden temperature changes.
  • Do not use the A/C and the heater.
  • Do not touch the front passenger’s seat and keep the vehicle stationary during this procedure.
  • Do not attach the front seat belt tongue into the buckle.
  • If possible, do all of the above procedures inside.
  1. Apply the parking brake.
  2. Position the front passenger’s seat all the way rearward and lowermost (if equipped with the height adjuster), then adjust the seat-back to the forward most position.

 

NOTE

Do not move the seat from this position until the initialization is completed.

  1. From the System Selection Menu, select SRS, then Adjustment. In Adjustment, select SWS Initialization. Follow the prompts until the front passenger’s weight sensor initialization has been completed.
  2. From the System Selection Menu, select SRS, then Data List. In the Data List, select FRONT PASSENGER’S WEIGHT. The weight (T0) of the front passenger’s seat is displayed on the Data List. Write this measurement down as “T0” on a piece of paper.
    • If the reading on the HDS (T0) is within ±0.35 kg (±0.77 lbs), go to step 5.
    • If the reading on the HDS (T0) is at or not within ±0.35 kg (±0.77 lbs), do the following and repeat the procedure from step 1.
      • Confirm that the seat has no interference with surrounding components.
      • Remove the front passenger’s weight sensors (If they were not reinstalled), reinstall them, then repeat this procedure from the step 1.
    • If after reinstalling the front passenger’s weight sensors, the HDS (T0) is still at or not within ±0.35 kg (±0.77 lbs), replace the front passenger’s weight sensors, then repeat this procedure from the beginning.
  3. Prepare a weight between 10 kg (22 lbs) - 20 kg (44 lbs) then measure and note its actual weight (M) with a weight scale.

 

NOTES

  • The accuracy of the weight scale must be within 1 kg (2 lbs).
  • The weight must be uniform in shape and size to allow precise placement on the seat.
  1. Precisely place the prepared weight on center of the front passenger’s seat.
  2. From the Data List, select FRONT PASSENGER’S WEIGHT. The weight (T) of the front passenger’s seat is displayed on the Data List. Write this measurement down as “T” on a piece of paper.
  3. Divide (M) by 2. Write this calculation as “M1” on a piece of paper.
  4. Calculate the variance between (M1) and the HDS (T) with the following formula.

Variance = (T) – (M1)

T: Weight measured by the HDS with the weight on the seat.

M1: Half of the weight measured by the weight scale.

  • If the variance is within ±2.2 kg (±4.9 lbs), initialization is complete. Go to step 10.
  • If the variance is at or not within ±2.2 kg (±4.9 lbs), do the following and repeat the procedure from step 1.
    • Confirm that the seat has no interference with surrounding components.
    • Confirm that the weight was placed precisely in the center of the seat.
    • Remove the front passenger’s weight sensors, reinstall them, then repeat this procedure from the step 1. If the variance is still at or not within ±2.2 kg (±4.9 lbs), replace the front passenger’s weight sensors (if they were not replaced), then repeat this procedure from step 1.
  1. Turn the vehicle to the OFF (LOCK) mode.

Vehicle Communication Interfaces (VCI)

The i-HDS software supports the use of a generic pass-thru VCI that is compliant with SAE J2534-1 and J2534-2. However, Honda recommends the Denso DST-i or the Bosch MVCI for use on Honda and Acura vehicles, as Honda has worked closely with these manufacturers to ensure their hardware and our software interact safely and within the J2534-1 and -2 specifications, for both diagnostics and reprogramming. If you choose to use a generic VCI, please carefully consider the customer and technical support options you will receive from your chosen device supplier. Honda does not provide technical or customer support for generic VCI devices.

The VCI Application Table below lists devices that either are approved and supported by Honda or are known to have completed and passed an independent, exhaustive validation program with our i-HDS software suite.
