Passive Occupant Detection System Safety Precautions
Recognition Control Module (J706) must be performed. Perform basic setting with a diagnostic tester that has "Guided Fault Finding
‹› Do not bend the passenger occupant detection system mat.
‹› A leaking mat must be replaced (repair kit).
‹› Do not bend the passenger occupant detection system pressure hose.
‹› Seat occupied recognition (repair kit) components must not fall on hard surfaces.
‹› Seat occupied recognition components must not come in contact with grease.
‹› There is the danger that the seat occupied recognition components may be damaged by sharp objects when working on the seat. It is
necessary to avoid this danger.
‹› The mat, the crease and various covers must be fitted to be free of folds.
‹› When installing, ensure upholstery and cover are installed correctly.
‹› Replace all upholstery clips and clip connectors from cover, ensure it is positioned correctly on seat when doing so.
‹› System basic setting is only possible at temperatures between 32° and 104° F (0° and +40° C).
‹› Make sure that no objects are placed on seat when performing basic setting.
‹› Use of seat covers, such as cushions or something similar, impairs seat occupied recognition function and airbag system effectiveness.
After an Accident with Belt Tensioner and/or Airbag Deployment
‹› Each time passenger airbag and/or belt pretensioner on passenger side is deployed, Seat Occupied Recognition Control Module (J706) basic
setting must be performed. Perform basic setting with a diagnostic tester that has "Guided Fault Finding".
‹› If the seat rails and/or seat pan must be replaced after an accident due to deformation, seat occupied recognition must also be replaced with " seat
occupied recognition repair kit". Then, Seat Occupied Recognition Control Module (J706) basic setting must be performed. Perform basic setting
