What does I-CAR say about printing the fault codes before disconnecting the battery?

Response

Per I-CAR curriculum: “A scan tool is often required to read the diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) associated with the SRS. The SRS may require a scan tool to run a diagnostic check before disconnecting the battery. If possible, the fault codes should be printed out and kept with the damage report for proper documentation.”
