2005 Pilot. Due to extensive leather damage and being unable to find any Pilot seats, I replaced both front seats with used seats from an Acura MDX. Everything bolted up exactly as expected included all wiring. Now the SRS light is on in the instrument cluster (but not the side airbag light). I tried the reset with the yellow plug by the e-Brake but it just stay on. Any recommendations?

I did the exact same thing on my 2005. Installed new-to-me front seats from a junked Pilot. I tried everything I could, refusing to go to the dealership to have them troubleshoot. Any and all combinations of resetting with the yellow "fuse" you described, disconnecting the battery, re-connecting connections.

Finally I decided (after some persuasion from my girlfriend), that it was a safety issue that is worth going to the dealership for. They charged a ~$90 diagnostic fee to hook up to the HDS and clear the code. I don't believe they "fixed" anything, but apparently it took the HDS to clear the code.

Not the worst thing in the world, but clearing codes should be easier than that. I also now have the "VSA" and "VSA Indicator" lights on, and after some searching here, it seems like I need to make another stop at the dealership just to clear the code, as I can't figure out how to clear it myself.

Search YT, saw couple videos on it.
For SRS: "How to Fix & Reset SRS Light For Any Honda / Acura"
For VSA: "(BEST METHOD) Acura & Honda - How to reset ABS Light, VSA light FREE"

From a fellow member a while ago when I was faced with persistent VSA lights:
