Arming The System


Specific to:

Ford Focus 2008-2009

  1. Turn the ignition from OFF to ON.
  3. Install the RCM fuse 32 (10A) to the SJB and install the cover.
    Make sure no one is in the vehicle and there is nothing blocking or placed in front of any air bag module when the battery is connected. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury in the event of an accidental deployment.

  5. Connect the battery ground cable.
  7. Prove out the SRS as follows:

    Turn the ignition from ON to OFF. Wait 10 seconds, then turn the ignition back to ON and visually monitor the air bag warning indicator with the air bag modules installed. The air bag warning indicator will light continuously for approximately 6 seconds and then turn off. If an air bag SRS fault is present, the air bag warning indicator will:
    Fail to light.
    Remain lit continuously.
    Flash at a 5 Hz rate (RCM not configured).

  9. The air bag warning indicator may not illuminate until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition has been turned from the OFF to the ON position. This is the time required for the RCM to complete the testing of the SRS. If the air bag warning indicator is inoperative and a SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of 5 sets of 5 beeps. If this occurs, the air bag warning indicator and any SRS fault discovered must be diagnosed and repaired.
  11. Clear all continuous DTCs from the RCM and Occupant Classification System Module (OCSM) using a scan tool.
    The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle to the customer.
