Tesla Restraints Wiring: UPDATE

Tesla Restraints Wiring: UPDATE

The question is often asked, "Can supplemental restraints system wiring be repaired?" The answer is: it depends on the vehicle maker. Let's take a look at Tesla's position on this subject.

Tesla states in vehicle-specific collision repair procedures (body repair manuals) under Repair Guidelines ➤ Electrical Harness Repair Guidelines: "The wires listed below are not repairable. Replace the entire wiring harness if there is damage to any of these wires:

  • Airbag sensor and seat sensor
  • High-voltage (HV) circuits”

Per Tesla, ONLY Tesla Service Center, Regional Technical Specialist, Field Technical Specialists can perform repairs to SRS circuits such as airbag and seatbelts.

Restraint wiring repairs are available but will need to be done by a qualified Tesla specialist or facility.

For information on Tesla replacement and inspection items after a restraints deployment, go to the OEM Restraints System Part Replacement Search.
