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.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
    CAUTION
    The restraint system diagnostic tool is for restraint system service only. Remove from vehicle prior to road use. Failure to remove could result in injury and possible violation of vehicle safety standards.

  2.  
  3. Make sure all restraint system diagnostic tool(s) that may have been installed during the repair have been removed from the vehicle and all SRS components are connected.
  4.  
  5. Turn the ignition switch from OFF to ON.
  6.  
  7. Install RCM fuse(s) to the SJB and close the cover.
    CAUTION
    Be sure that nobody is in the vehicle and that there is nothing blocking or set in front of any air bag module when the battery ground cable is connected.

  8.  
  9. Connect the battery ground cable.
  10.  
  11. Prove out the supplemental restraint system (SRS) as follows:
    1. Turn the ignition key from ON to OFF. Wait 10 seconds, and then turn the key back to ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) fault is present, the air bag indicator will either:

      fail to light.
       
      remain lit continuously.
       
      flash.
       

    2.  
    3. The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from the OFF to the ON position. This is the time required for the restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. If the air bag indicator is inoperative and a SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of five sets of five beeps. If this occurs, the air bag indicator and any SRS fault discovered must be diagnosed and repaired.

  13. Clear all continuous DTC's from the restraints control module using a scan tool.

  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.
