What does I-CAR say about the using a recycled restraint control module (RCM)?

Response

Per I-CAR curriculum: “Potential liability issues may arise from the use of recycled restraint system parts. Improper inspection of airbag assemblies, or not knowing the history of the vehicle that an airbag was removed from, may lead to improper deployment. These concerns extend to all restraint system parts, such as seat belts, control modules, and crash sensors.”
