Frank, Sounds to me like your seatbelt sensor may be going out. I know some models of the accord had a recall for faulty airbag wiring but you had crossed that out as a possibility with the VIN check. The seatbelt sensor senses that the buckle is in place and that you are, in fact, wearing your seatbelt. It is most likely throwing the airbag alarm because it senses that the seatbelt sensor is not properly working and that light is telling you the airbags won’t be deployed since the sensor is in an “off state” or out of position technically. The sensors have to be in an “on state” in order for the airbags to function properly. Airbags should deploy, most of the time, regardless of the situation. However, that sensor will hinder/decrease the effectiveness of the Air Bag Deployment System if not functioning properly
Brandon, There could be several reasons for this problem: (1) Make sure tires are properly inflated all the way around (2) Wheel Bearings (3) Tie Rods Ends (4) Ball Joints (5) Braking System ex. (Rotors, Brakes, Calipers, etc.) (6) Or could it be an engine issue at higher speeds as if the engine isn’t getting the proper ventilation/oxygen it needs to correctly run? Spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter Hopefully, this gives you some ideas as of where to check next. I am no master mechanic but I can tell you from the problems I have had related to this have almost always been engine or braking system related.
Zoe, When doing ANY phone repair always power off the device first before tearing into it. After you tear into your device the first thing you always do is disconnect the battery cable to reduce the risk of possibly shorting anything out during a repair. The percentage of the battery does not matter when you’re going to take it out of the device. The only thing that matters is you properly charge the phone to 100% after installation.
