DISABLE PROCEDURE AND TIME (Always Check Service Manual)

WARNING: 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
performing further diagnosis or service

PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

If an active head restraint is deployed
• An inertia-based Active Head Restraint (AHR) unit that is undamaged following a deployment automatically resets itself. These units are designed with the intention of reuse.

If the driver airbag is deployed:
• Driver AirBag (DAB) [AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL]
• Steering wheel
• Clockspring [CLOCK SPRING/LVR,STRG]
• Complete steering column with lower steering column coupler
• Both front seat belt retractor and tensioner assemblies
• Both front seat belt buckle and tensioner assemblies (if equipped)
• All other seat belt retractors and buckles in use must be replaced

If the knee airbag is deployed:
• Knee AirBag (KAB) (also known as the Inflatable Knee Blocker/IKB) [AIRBAG,KNEE BOLSTER]
• Instrument panel steering column opening cover

If the passenger airbag is deployed:
• Passenger AirBag (PAB) [AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL]
• Instrument panel top pad
• Both front seat belt retractor and tensioner assemblies
• Both front seat belt buckle and tensioner assemblies (if equipped)
• All other seat belt retractors and buckles in use must be replaced

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

If a seat belt tensioner is deployed
• The seat belt tensioners are deployed in conjunction with the front airbags, but can also be deployed with a Seat AirBag (SAB) (also known as the pelvic and thoracic airbag) or side curtain airbags (also known as Side AirBag Inflatable Curtains/SABIC). All seat belt tensioners must be replaced if any airbag in the vehicle except a Knee AirBag (KAB) has been deployed.

If a side curtain airbag is deployed:
• Side curtain airbag (also known as Side AirBag Inflatable Curtain/SABIC) (deployed side) [AIRBAG,ROOF]
• Headliner
• Upper A, B and the C-pillar trim (deployed side)
• Side impact sensors on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR; AIRBAG SENSOR,SIDE; AIRBAG SENSOR,QTR PANEL]
• Both front seat belt retractor and tensioner assemblies
• Both front seat belt buckle and tensioner assemblies (if equipped)
• All other seat belt retractors and buckles in use must be replaced

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,SIDE; AIRBAG SENSOR,FRT DOOR;AIRBAG SENSOR,QTR PANEL]

• Active Head Restraint units that are undamaged are designed with the intention of reuse
• Lower anchors and tether for children (LATCH)
• Inspect all trim panels

When Driver Airbag has deployed:
• Front Impact Sensors [AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT]

When Inflatable Knee Blocker has deployed:
• Instrument Panel

When Side Curtain Airbag has deployed:
• Sunroof
• Sunroof Drain Tubes and Hoses
• Seat Belt Tensioners

When Seat Airbag has deployed:
• Seat Belt Tensioners

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

SQUIB CIRCUIT WIRING REPAIRS:
In addition to the preceding guidelines, be aware that the heat created by the initiator during an airbag or tensioner deployment will cause collateral damage to the connected wiring (squib circuits) and connector insulators. There are two methods by which an airbag or seat belt tensioner may be connected to the vehicle electrical system.
1) 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
2) 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
