All deployed devices:
• Driver airbag module [AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL]
• Passengers side airbag module [AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL]
• Driver safety belt systems (including retractors, buckles and height adjusters)
• Passenger safety belt systems (including retractors, buckles and height adjusters)
• Seat airbag [AIRBAG,FRONT SEAT]
• Side air curtain module [AIRBAG,ROOF]

New impact sensors and a new RCM:
• Restraints control module (RCM) [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL]

• Install new safety belt(s) at any seating position(s) where deployment has occurred and the safety belt(s) were used

• When the driver air bag module has deployed, a new clockspring must be installed.
• Anytime the side air curtain module has deployed, a new headliner and new roof pillar upper trim panels with attaching hardware must be installed


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 and safety belt retractors.
• SRS wiring, wiring harnesses and connectors
• 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
• Front seat backrest trim covers installed on seats equipped with seat side airbags cannot be repaired. A new trim cover must be installed.

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 weight sensor bolt-type OCS, inspect the passenger side floorpan for damage and repair as necesssary. Install a new seat track with OCS weight sensor bolts. The DTC must be cleared from from de OCSM before carrying out the OCS reset. Do not install a new OCSM unless DTC B1193:00 cannot be cleared.

• 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

• 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.
