Arming The System

Print


WARNING
If the air bag simulators have been used, the air bag simulators must be removed and the air bags reconnected when the system is reactivated to avoid non-deployment in a collision resulting in possible personal injury.

  1. Disconnect the positive battery cable.
  2.  
  3. Wait 1 minute, this is required for the back-up power supply in the air bag diagnostic monitor to deplete its stored energy.
  4.  
  5. Remove the air bag simulator from the air bag sliding contact connector at the top of the steering column. Reconnect the driver's side air bag module assembly. Position the driver's air bag module on the steering wheel and secure with the 2 bolts and washers. Tighten the bolt and washer assembly to 8-10 ft. lbs. (10-14 Nm).
  6.  
  7. Connect the positive battery cable.
  8.  
  9. Turn the ignition switch from the OFF to RUN and visually monitor the air bag warning indicator. The light will illuminate continuously for approximately 6 seconds and then turn off. If a fault occurs, the air bag indicator will either fail to light, remain lighted continuously or flash. The flashing may not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from OFF to RUN . This is the time needed for the air bag diagnostic monitor to complete testing the system. If the air bag indicator is inoperative, an air bag system fault exists, a tone will sound in a pattern of 5 sets of 5 beeps. If this occurs, the air bag indicator will need to be serviced before further diagnostics can be done.

  1. Connect the positive battery cable.
  2.  
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.
  4.  
  5. Stand outside the vehicle and carefully turn the ignition to the RUN position. Be sure that no part of your body is in front of the air bag module on the steering wheel, to prevent injury in case of an accidental air bag deployment.
  6.  
  7. Ensure the air bag indicator light turns off after approximately 6 seconds. If the light does not illuminate at all, does not turn off, or starts to flash, have the system tested by a qualified automotive technician. If the light does turn off after 6 seconds and does not flash, the SRS is working properly.
