2. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.
3. 2006-2008 At the central junction box (CJB), located below the LH side of the instrument panel, remove the cover and the restraints control module (RCM) module fuse 20 (10A) from the CJB
3. 2009• At the Smart Junction Box (SJB), located below the LH side of the instrument panel, remove the cover and the RCM fuse 32 (10A) 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 ECS fuse has been removed. If the air bag indicator does not remain lit continuously, remove the correct RCM fuse before proceeding

PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

Driver Air Bag deployment:

• Driver Air Bag module, if deployed
• Clockspring
• New driver 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 safety belt pretensioners
• New 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 passenger safety belt pretensioners
• RCM (Restraints Control Module)
• Impact sensors
• If the occupant classification sensor (OCS) module has DTC B1231 stored in memory, for rail type OCS system, install new OCS rails. For weight sensor bolt type OCS system, install a new seat track with OCS weight sensor bolts.
NOTE: Most bladder type OCS modules 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 component is required, an OCS service kit must be installed.
• Any damaged or defective restraint system part

Passenger Air Bag deployment:

• Passenger Air Bag module, if deployed
• New driver 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 safety belt pretensioners
