Air Bag(s) Arming and Disarming: Service and Repair
General Service Precautions
CAUTION: When performing service on or around SIR components or SIR wiring, follow the procedures listed below to temporarily
dIsable the SIR system. Failure to follow procedures could result In possible air bag deployment, personal injury or otherwise unneeded SIR
NOTICE: Because the driver deployment loop passes through connector C200, certain precautions need to be taken before servicing it. If connector
C200 is to be disconnected or serviced, the SIR system must be disabled first. Refer to "Disabling the SIR System."
The SDM can maintain sufficient voltage to cause a deployment for up to 10 minutes after the Ignition switch Is turned "OFF," the battery is
dIsconnected or the fuse powering the SDM Is removed. Many of the service procedures require removal of "AIR BAG" fuse and disconnection of the
deployment loops to avoid an accidental deployment. If the inflator modules are disconnected from the deployment loop as noted in the "Disabling the
SIR System" procedure that follows, service can begin immediately without waiting for the 10 minute time period to expire.
