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 supplemental restraint system (SRS) components and before servicing, replacing, adjusting or striking components near the front or side air bag sensors, 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 one 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 central junction box (CJB), located below the LH side of the instrument panel, remove the cover and the restraints control module (RCM) fuse 60 (7.5A) from the CJB(06 and 07 models). Fuse 22 (10A 2008 model) For additional information, refer to the Wiring Diagram Manual.

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 and wait at least one minute.

PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

• Deployed airbag modules [Airbag, Instrument Pnl and/or Airbag, Steering Wheel and/or Airbag, Front Seat]
• Clockspring
• A new RCM and impact sensors (Front and Side) must be installed whether or not the air bags have deployed
• Airbag modules with discolored or damaged trim covers or deployment doors
• New driver and/or front passenger safety belt systems (including retractors, buckles and height adjusters) must be installed if the vehicle is involved in a collision that results in deployment of the driver and/or front passenger safety belt pretensioners
• When a vehicle has been involved in a collision and the Occupant Classification System Module (OCSM) has DTC B1231/B1193:00 stored in memory, the repair of the OCS system is to include the following procedures for the specified system:
For rail-type OCS system, inspect the passenger side floorpan for damage and repair as necessary. Install new OCS system rails
For weight sensor bolt-type OCS system, inspect the passenger side floorpan for damage and repair as necessary. Install a new seat track with OCS system weight sensor bolts. DTC must be cleared from the OCSM before carrying out Occupant Classification Sensor (OCS) System Reset. Do not install a new OCSM unless DTC B1231/B1193:00 cannot be cleared.
NOTE: Most bladder-type OCSM do not store a DTC B1231 in memory after deployment. The DTC B1231 is stored only by the RCM.
For bladder-type OCS system, inspect for damage and repair as necessary. If installation of an OCS system component is required, an OCS system service kit must be installed.

• Any damaged or defective restraint system part

For a Side Airbag Deployment:
• Deployed airbag modules [Airbag, Front Seat]
• A new RCM and impact sensors (Front and Side) must be installed whether or not the air bags have deployed
