Air Bag Control Module: Service Precautions
Installing a connected diagnostic monitor is dangerous. Movement generated during installation can cause the crash sensor inside the unit
to send an electrical signal to the air bag modules. This will deploy the air bag modules, which may result in serious injury. therefore,
before connecting the diagnostic monitor, firmly mount the unit to the vehicle.
Disconnecting the diagnostic monitor connector or removing the diagnostic monitor with the ignition switch ON can cause the air bag
modules to deploy, which may seriously injure you. Before disconnecting the diagnostic monitor connector or removing the monitor, turn
the ignition switch to LOCK, then disconnect the negative battery cable and wait for more than 1 minute to allow the backup power
supply of the monitor to deplete its stored power.
Once an air bag is deployed due to an accident or other causes, the diagnostic monitor must be replaced with a new on even if the used on
does not have any external signs of damage. The used monitor may have been damaged internally which may cause improper operation,
resulting in major injuries or even death. the used monitor cannot be benched-checked or self-checked.
