DISABLE PROCEDURE AND TIME (Always Check Service Manual)

Depower:
WARNING: Incorrect repair techniques or actions can cause an accidental Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) deployment. Never compromise or depart from these
instructions. Failure to precisely follow all instructions could result in serious personal injury from an accidental deployment.

1. WARNING: Before beginning any service procedure in this section, refer to Safety Warnings in section 100-00 General Information. Failure to follow this
instruction may result in serious personal injury.

Refer to: Health and Safety Precautions (100-00 General Information, Description and Operation).

2. Determine if a SRS fault is present. Turn the ignition OFF and wait 10 seconds, then turn the ignition ON and monitor the airbag warning indicator. The airbag warning indicator illuminates continuously for approximately 6 seconds and then turns off. Continue to monitor the airbag warning indicator for approximately 30 seconds as this is the time required for the RCM to complete testing of the SRS.

3.
• If a SRS fault is present the airbag warning indicator either fails to light, remains lit continuously or flashes. The flashing may not occur until approximately 30 seconds after
the ignition has been turned from OFF to ON. If this occurs, diagnose and repair any SRS faults before proceeding with other repairs.
• If after the ignition has been turned ON for 30 seconds the airbag warning indicator remains unlit with no chime or SRS message displayed in the message center, no SRS
fault is present.
• If the airbag warning indicator is inoperative and a SRS fault exists, a chime sounds in a pattern of 5 sets of 5 beeps or a message displays in the message center. If this
occurs, diagnose and repair the airbag warning indicator and any SRS faults before proceeding with other repairs.

No SRS Fault Present (with ignition ON, airbag warning indicator stays off after prove out):

4. WARNING: Turn the ignition OFF and wait one minute to deplete the backup power supply. Ignition must remain OFF until repair is complete. Failure to follow
this instruction may result in serious personal injury or death in the event of an accidental deployment.

Turn the ignition OFF and wait one minute before continuing vehicle service.

SRS Fault Present:

5. Turn the ignition OFF.
6. Remove the RCM fuse. Refer to Wiring Diagram Cell 11. Refer to service manual Section 700-01 for fuse and relay information.
7. Turn the ignition ON.
8. Using a diagnostic scan tool, carry out a Network Test. Verify that the RCM does not respond to the Network Test. If the RCM passes the Network Test, remove the correct RCM fuse and repeat the Network Test to verify before proceeding.
9. Turn the ignition OFF.
10. Disconnect the battery.

Refer to service manual: Battery Disconnect and Connect (414-01 Battery, Mounting and Cables, General Procedures).

11. Wait at least one minute before continuing vehicle service.

is to include the removal of all deployed devices and the installation of new deployable devices, the removal and installation of new impact sensors and the removal and
installation of a new RCM.

Installation of new deployable devices:
[AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL; AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL; AIRBAG,FRONT SEAT; AIRBAG,ROOF]
• When the driver airbag has deployed, install a new clockspring.
• Anytime the Safety Canopy or side air curtain module has deployed, a new headliner and new A-, B-, C-, and/or D-pillar upper trim panels and attaching hardware must be installed.

New impact sensors and the removal and installation of a new RCM:
[MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL; AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT; AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR; AIRBAG SENSOR,SIDE(B-Pillar); AIRBAG SENSOR,SIDE (rear bodyside)]

• New driver safety belt systems (including retractors, buckles and height adjusters) must be installed if the vehicle is involved in a collision that results in
deployment of the driver and/or front passenger safety belt pretensioners.
• New front passenger safety belt systems (including retractors, buckles and height adjusters) must be installed if the vehicle is involved in a collision that results in
deployment of the driver and/or front passenger safety belt pretensioners.
• Install new safety belt(s) at any seating position(s) where deployment has occurred and the safety belt(s) were used

PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

Inspection and Repair after a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Deployment.

Inspect the entire vehicle for damage, including the following components:

All safety belt components must be inspected and corrected as part of any collision repair
• Before installing the new safety belt assembly, inspect the safety belt attaching areas for damage and distortion. If the attaching points are damaged and distorted, work the
sheet metal back to its original shape and structural integrity.

When a vehicle has been involved in a collision and the OCSM has DTC B1193:00 stored in memory, the repair of the OCS is to include the following procedures for the
specified system:
• For a bladder-type OCS , inspect for damage and repair as necessary. If installation of an OCS component is required, an OCS service kit must be installed.
• NOTE: After installation of new OCS components, use a diagnostic scan tool to carry out the OCS Reset procedure

• When any damage to the impact sensor mounting points or mounting hardware has occurred, repair or install new mounting points and mounting hardware as needed

Inspect the entire vehicle for damage, including the following components:
• Steering column (deployable column if equipped)
• Instrument panel knee bolsters and mounting points
• Safety Canopy and mounting points
• Instrument panel braces and brackets
• Instrument panel and mounting points
• Seats and seat mounting points
• Safety belts, safety belt buckles, safety belt retractors and safety belt anchors.
• SRS wiring, wiring harnesses and connectors

After carrying out the review and inspection of the entire vehicle for damage, repair or install new components as needed

Inspect the fuel system for damage or leaks. Repair the system and install new components as necessary.

Connect a diagnostic scan tool and view the BCM CRASH PID.
• If the BCM CRASH PID is present and reads 'Yes', use the diagnostic scan tool to carry out the BCM Crash Status Reset under "Electrical • Service Functions".
• If the BCM CRASH PID reads 'No' or is not present, complete any necessary repairs before returning the vehicle to the customer.
