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. Allow system capacitor to discharge for two minutes before performing further diagnosis or service.

When driver airbag has deployed:
• If the driver airbag has been deployed, the clockspring must be replaced
• Steering Column Assembly including Intermediate Shaft/Coupler
• Seat belt tensioners
• All Seat Belt Retractors and Buckles in use

When passenger airbag has deployed:
• Passenger Airbag & Door Assembly [AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL]
• Seat belt tensioners
• Passenger Airbag wiring harness or connector if available (Must use approved wire crimping tool and splices)

When seat belt tensioner has deployed:
• The seat belt tensioners are deployed in conjunction with the front airbags, but can also be deployed with side curtain airbags. The seat belt tensioners must be replaced if either front airbag has been deployed.

When side curtain airbag has deployed:
• Curtain Airbag Assembly [AIRBAG,ROOF]
• Headliner
• Upper A, B and C-pillar trim on the same side of the vehicle as the deployed airbag
• All Seat Belt Retractors and Buckles in use


• It is critical that the mounting surfaces and mounting brackets for the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC), side impact sensors, and front impact sensors be closely inspected and restored to their original conditions following any vehicle impact damage. [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL; AIRBAG SENSOR,FRONT; AIRBAG SENSOR,SIDE]

• Lower anchors and tether for children (LATCH)
• Inspect all trim panels
• All seat belts, buckles, mounting hardware, retractors, tether straps, and anchors for proper installation, operation, or damage

When Driver Airbag has deployed:
• Steering Wheel

When Passenger Airbag has deployed:
• Instrument Panel

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

• 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.

There are two methods by which an airbag or seat belt tensioner may be connected to the vehicle electrical
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. (Refer to 10 • Restraints • Standard Procedure).
