Removal and Installation

WARNING:

  • Before servicing, turn ignition switch OFF, disconnect both battery terminals and wait at least 3 minutes.
  • Before disconnecting the air bag sensor unit harness connector, be sure to disconnect the harness connector of each air bag module and pre-tensioner seat belt to prevent air bag deployment by static electricity.
  • Do not use air tools or electric tools for servicing.
  • When replacing the air bag diagnosis sensor unit, always check with the parts department for the latest parts information. Installing an incorrect air bag diagnosis sensor unit may or may not cause the air bag warning lamp to illuminate and may cause incorrect deployment of the supplemental air bags and seat belt pre-tensioner in a collision resulting in serious personal injury or death.

  • Do not use old bolts after removal; replace with new bolts.
  • Be careful not to damage the diagnosis sensor unit harness.
  • After the work is completed, make sure no system malfunction is detected by air bag warning lamp.
  • In case a malfunction is detected by the air bag warning lamp, reset by the self-diagnosis function and delete the memory by CONSULT.
  • - If a malfunction is still detected after the above operation, perform self-diagnosis to repair malfunctions.

    Refer to SRC-12, "SRS Operation Check".

  • After replacing the air bag diagnosis sensor unit, confirm using CONSULT that the ECU discriminated number (identification number) or part number of the new replacement air bag diagnosis sensor unit matches the ECU discriminated number (identification number) or part number of the replaced (old) air bag diagnosis sensor unit.

NOTE: If the ECU discriminated number or part number of the new replacement air bag diagnosis sensor unit differs from the ECU discriminated number or part number of the replaced air bag diagnosis sensor unit, reconfirm the parts information and verify that the correct air bag diagnosis sensor unit was installed.
