There are two ways to properly disarm the Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) System depending on the type of service that is being preformed:



If the vehicle was involved in an accident with an air bag deployment, remove the negative battery cable.
 
When performing SIR diagnostics follow the service manual diagnostic procedures and disable the SIR system when indicated to do so by removing the negative battery cable.
 
When performing electrical diagnosis on components other than the SIR system, remove the SIR/Airbag fuse(s) when indicated by the diagnostic procedure.
 
When removing or replacing a component attached to or near an SIR component, remove the negative battery cable as indicated in the procedure.
 

Air Bag Fuse Method



  1. Turn the steering wheel so that the vehicles wheels are pointing straight ahead.

  3. Place the ignition in the OFF position.
    NOTE
    With the AIR BAG fuse removed and the ignition switch in the ON position, the AIR BAG warning indicator illuminates. This is normal operation, and does not indicate an SIR system malfunction.
