DISABLE PROCEDURE AND TIME (Always Check Service Manual)

The inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) maintains a reserved energy supply. The reserved energy supply provides deployment power for the air bags. Deployment power is available for as much as 2 minutes after disconnecting the vehicle power. Disabling the SIR system prevents deployment of the air bags from the reserved energy supply

1. Turn the steering wheel so that the vehicle's wheels are pointing straight ahead.
2. Place the ignition in the OFF position.
3. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery.
4. Wait 1 minute before working on system.

PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

All SIR components must be replaced after a frontal crash involving air bag deployment.
• SDM [MODULE,AIRBAG CONTROL]
• Air bag modules (as needed)
• Pretensioners
• SIR wiring
• Clock spring

PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

If any supplemental inflatable restraints (SIR) components are damaged, they must be replaced. If SIR components mounting points are damaged, they must be repaired or replaced.

The following inspections must be performed after any crash, whether the air bag has deployed or not:
• The steering column must be dimensionally inspected.
• Inspect the knee bolsters and mounting points for distortion, bending and cracking or other damages.
• Inspect the instrument panel (I/P) and steering column reinforcement plate for distortion, bending and cracking or other damage.
• Inspect the I/P braces for distortion, bending and cracking or other damage.
• Inspect the seat belt and mounting points
• If any supplemental inflatable restraints (SIR) components are damaged, they must be replaced
• If SIR components mounting points are damaged, they must be repaired or replaced.

Warning: Proper operation of the SIR sensing system requires that any repairs to the vehicle structure
return the vehicle structure to the original production configuration. Not properly repairing the vehicle
structure could cause non-deployment in a collision or deployment for conditions less severe than intended.
