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.

PARTS THAT MUST BE REPLACED FOLLOWING A DEPLOYMENT

If the driver airbag has been deployed:
• Driver airbag [AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL]
• Clockspring
• Steering Column Assembly including Intermediate Shaft/Coupler
• Seat belt tensioners
• All Seat Belt Retractors and Buckles in use

If the passenger airbag is deployed:
• Passenger airbag [AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL]
• Passenger airbag door [AIRBAG,INSTRUMENT PNL]
• Seat belt tensioners
• Passenger Airbag Wiring Harness, or Connector if available (Must use Chrysler approved wire crimping tool and splices)

Seat belt tensioners:
• The seat belt tensioners are deployed by the same signal that deploys the driver and passenger airbags and must also be replaced if either front airbag has been deployed

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

PARTS THAT MUST BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF DAMAGED

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.

• If the driver airbag has been deployed, the clockspring must be replaced and the steering column must be inspected
• The seat belt tensioners must be inspected if either side curtain airbag has been deployed
• Sunroof
• On vehicles with an optional sunroof, the sunroof drain tubes and hoses must be closely inspected following a side curtain airbag deployment
• Lower anchors and tether for
children (LATCH)
• Inspect all trim panels
• All other vehicle components should be closely inspected following any SRS 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
system.
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 unit.
2) The second method involves a wire harness takeout and connector insulator (squib circuits) that are connected directly to the air bag or tensioner initiator. The heat created by the initiator during an airbag or tensioner deployment will cause collateral damage to a directly connected wire harness take out and connector insulator. Therefore, these direct-connect type take outs and connector insulators must be repaired following an airbag or seat belt tensioner deployment.
