Disarming the System
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
The Air Bag system must be disarmed before repair and/or removal of any component in its immediate area including the air bag itself. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary system repairs and/or personal injury or death.
Disconnect the negative battery cable and isolate the cable using an appropriate insulator (wrap with quality electrical tape).
Allow the system capacitor to discharge for 2 minutes before starting any repair on any air bag system or related components. This will disable the air bag system.
