It is very possible to push the accelerator, while pushing the brake pedal. I've done it before myself in my 03. Luckily I wasn't close enough to anything to hit it. When this happens, you are putting so much more pressure on the brake pedal, than the Accelerator, that you don't really feel it. You just hear the engine rev, then quickly try to reposition your foot. From what I've heard (TV news and news papers) it happens all the time. Plenty of these instances have been investigated, and very very few instances reveal a problem with the car.

I have done the same thing when I was interstate driving. I would go to brake and hit the accelerator by accident. It took me a minute to get my foot in the right place--on the brake. The pedals are small and close together.

Dealer found a fault code of "SRS DTC FN-10" diagnosis. What does this mean?
SRS was reprogrammed and was supposed to be fixed but when I picked it up, light on instrument panel was still on.
Car is still at the dealer.
Light has been coming on when starting first time in the day. Stays on unless car is restarted. Several occasions, comes on when starting in the afternoon on the drive home.

Does the light come on every time you start the car? If it does, try this. Get in the car, put the seatbelt on first, then turn the key to start the car. If the light goes out, the seatbelt buckle is likely the problem. There is supposed to be a lifetime warranty on seatbelts (safety), so they should not charge you to fix this. I have an 03 service manual, and there is no code "10". The numbers start at 11. Maybe they gave you a bogus code.

elroy5, thanks for your response. The light comes on when car is started first for the day. It's a habit that I turn the ignition on first before buckling up -- to warm up the vehicle while continuing to load stuff.
I'll have the dealer try your recommendation if they haven't figured out what's causing it.
So the 03 codes would carry over into later models? Maybe the tech was in a hurry, did a typo and actually meant an '11' instead of the '10'? They did mispell 'reprogramed'.

#4655 of 5868 Windshield washer
Jun 08, 2009 (10:46 am)
Question on a 2007 Accord EX-L: I bought the car new in Sept. 2007, and I can't remember if I've had this issue since then, or just in the last several months. But basically, whenever I use my windshield washer, the fuild shoots not only onto the windshield, but also onto my sunroof and even all the way to my back window! And that's with the car stationary. Anyone else experience this? Would this be something covered by the warranty, if it's indeed a flaw? Thanks.
