Arming The System


After the necessary repairs have been made, re-enable the air bag system as follows:

  1. Turn the steering wheel so the front wheels are in the straight-ahead position.
  3. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
  5. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  7. Install or connect the following:

    Yellow 2-way connector at the base of the steering column and the connector retainer
    Left-hand sound insulator
    Yellow 2-way connector on the right side and the connector retainer
    Sound insulator and/or glove box
    Air bag fuse
    Negative battery cable

  9. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. Verify that the INFLATABLE RESTRAINT indicator lamp flashes 7-9 times, then remains OFF. If the lamp does not function as specified, there is a malfunction in the air bag system.
