DISABLE PROCEDURE AND TIME (Always Check Service Manual)

Warning! To avoid accidental deployment and possible personal injury, the backup power supply must be depleted before repairing or replacing any front or side air bag SRS components and before servicing, replacing, adjusting, or striking components near the front or side air bag sensors or RCM, such as doors, instrument panel, console, door latches, strikers, seats and hood latches.

To deplete the backup power supply energy, disconnect the battery ground cable and wait at least 1 minute. Be sure to disconnect auxiliary batteries and power supplies (if equipped).

1. Turn all vehicle accessories OFF.
2. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.
3. At the smart junction box (SJB), located at the RH side of the center console, remove the cover and the restraints control module (RCM) fuse fuse 33 (15A) from the SJB.
4. Turn the ignition ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator for at least 30 seconds. The air bag indicator will remain lit continuously (no flashing) if the correct RCM fuse has been removed. If the air bag indicator does not remain lit continuously, remove the correct RCM fuse before proceeding.
5. Turn the ignition OFF.
6. Disconnect the battery ground cable. Be sure to disconnect auxiliary batteries and power supplies (if equipped).
7. Wait at least 1 minute.
