DISABLE PROCEDURE AND TIME (Always Check Service Manual)

Before doing any SRS repairs, use the HDS SRS menu method to check for DTCs (make sure the HDS is loaded with the latest software); refer to the DTC Troubleshooting Index for the less obvious deployed parts (seat belt tensioners, front impact sensors, side airbag sensors, etc.)

Make sure you have the anti-theft code(s) for the audio and/or the navigation system (if equipped)

Before removing the SRS unit connectors, always disconnect the appropriate associated SRS parts connectors.

1. Make sure the ignition switch is in LOCK (0)
2. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery
3. Wait at least 3 minutes before beginning work
