DISABLE PROCEDURE AND TIME (Always Check Service Manual)

To avoid potential physical injury or damage to sensitive electronic circuits and systems,
always disconnect and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable and the positive cable,
then ground the positive cable to discharge the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) capacitor
before performing any welding operations on the vehicle

1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable.
2. Wait two minutes for the system capacitor to discharge before further system service.

PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

Any vehicle which is to be returned to use following a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) component deployment must have the deployed restraints replaced.

If the driver airbag is deployed:
• Driver AirBag (DAB) [AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL]
• Clockspring and stalk unit [CLOCK SPRING/LVR,STRG]
• Steering column including the intermediate shaft and coupler
• Both front seat belt anchor buckle tensioners
• Both front seat belt retractor and tensioner assemblies
• Any front seat belt buckle in use
• All rear seat belt retractors and buckles in use

If the knee airbag is deployed:
• Knee AirBag
• Instrument panel steering column opening cover

If the passenger airbag is deployed:
• Passenger AirBag (PAB) [AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL]
• Instrument panel
• The PAB wire harness or connector

If a seat airbag is deployed:
• Seat AirBag (SAB) (also known as pelvic and thoracic airbags) [AIRBAG,FRONT SEAT]
• Seat back frame
• Seat back foam
• Seat back trim cover on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag must also be replaced.
• Side impact sensors on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR; AIRBAG SENSOR,SIDE]
• Both front seat belt anchor buckle tensioners
• Both front seat belt retractor and tensioner assemblies
• Any front seat belt buckle in use
• All rear seat belt retractors and buckles in use

If a seat belt tensioner is deployed:
• All seat belt tensioners must be replaced if any airbag in the vehicle except the Knee AirBag (KAB) has been deployed

If a side curtain airbag is deployed:
• Side curtain airbag (also known as Side AirBag Inflatable Curtain/SABIC) [AIRBAG,ROOF]
• Headliner
• (Without a rear seat option) Upper A and B-pillar trim on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag
• (With a rear seat option) Upper A and B-pillars and also on the C-pillars on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag
• The impact sensors on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR; AIRBAG SENSOR,SIDE]
• The deploy brackets on the B-pillar and on the C-pillar (with a rear seat option) for the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag must be replaced following a side curtain airbag deployment.
• Both front seat belt anchor buckle tensioners
• Both front seat belt retractor and tensioner assemblies
• Any front seat belt buckle in use
• All rear seat belt retractors and buckles in use

PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

Following ANY major vehicle impact damage in the vicinity of an impact sensor or the ORC • It is critical that the mounting surfaces and mounting brackets for the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC), front impact sensors and side impact sensors located within the proximity of the impact damage be closely inspected and restored to their original conditions. [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL; AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT; AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR; AIRBAG SENSOR,SIDE]

• Following ANY airbag deployment event • All interior trim panels must be inspected

If the driver airbag is deployed:
• The front impact sensors and the steering wheel must be inspected [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT]

If the knee airbag is deployed:
• The instrument panel must also be inspected

The components identified with the deployed SRS components in the preceding list are not intended for reuse and will be damaged or weakened as a result of an airbag deployment, which may or may not be obvious during a visual inspection.

All other vehicle components should be closely inspected following any SRS component deployment, but are to be replaced only as required by the extent of the visible damage incurred.

There are two methods by which an airbag or seat belt tensioner may be connected to the vehicle electrical system:
• The first method involves a short pigtail harness and connector insulator that are integral to the airbag or tensioner unit and are replaced as a unit with the service replacement airbag or seat belt tensioner. This connection method typically requires no additional wiring repair following a deployment.
• The second connection method involves a wire harness takeout and connector insulator that are connected directly to the airbag or tensioner initiator or squib. These direct-connect type take outs and connector insulators MUST be repaired following an airbag or seat belt tensioner deployment using the approved Supplemental Restraint System Wiring Repairs procedure. (Refer to 10 • Restraints • Standard Procedure).
