DangerDanger: In order to reduce the chance of death, personal injury and/or property damage, carefully observe the instructions that follow:
The service manuals of General Motors are intended for use by professional, qualified technicians. Attempting repairs or service without the appropriate training, tools, and equipment could cause death or injury to you or others. This could also damage the vehicle, or cause the vehicle to operate improperly.
Proper vehicle service and repair are important to the safety of the service technician and to the safe, reliable operation of all motor vehicles. If you need to replace a part, use the same part number or an equivalent part. Do not use a replacement part of lesser quality.
The service procedures we recommend and describe in this service manual are effective methods of performing service and repair. Some of the procedures require the use of tools that are designed for specific purposes.
Accordingly, any person who intends to use a replacement part, a service procedure, or a tool that is not recommended by General Motors, must first establish that there is no jeopardy to personal safety or the safe operation of the vehicle.
This manual contains various "Dangers", "Warnings" and "Cautions" that you must observe carefully in order to reduce the risk of personal injury during service or repair. Improper service or repair may damage the vehicle or render the vehicle unsafe. These "Dangers", "Warnings" and "Cautions" are not exhaustive. General Motors can not possibly warn of all the potentially hazardous consequences of your failure to follow these instructions.
This manual covers service procedures to vehicles that are equipped with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint. Refer to the "Warnings" in Dangers, Warnings and Cautions in Supplemental Inflatable Restraint. Refer to Supplemental Inflatable Restraint component and wiring location views in Supplemental Inflatable Restraint before performing a service on or around Supplemental Inflatable Restraint components or wiring. Failure to follow these "Dangers", "Warnings" and "Cautions" could cause air bag deployment, personal injury, or otherwise unnecessary Supplemental Inflatable Restraint repairs.
In order to help avoid accidental air bag deployment and personal injury, whenever you service a vehicle that requires repair of the Supplemental Inflatable Restraint and another vehicle system, we recommend that you first repair the Supplemental Inflatable Restraint, then go on to the other system.
