Question about 1987 Nissan Sentra Wagon

2 Answers

Passive restraint questions...

I need some information about passive restraints on some vehicles. Can anyone tell me if airbags were standard on the following vehicles?

a) 1987 Nissan/Datsun Sentra - (I doubt it, but I cannot find it anywhere)

b) 1993 Chevy Sportvan G20 - (I also doubt this one)

c) 1996 Dodge Ram PU1500

I am almost positive that airbags were not standard on the first 2. But I could not find any information online. The last one seems probable, but again I could not find any info. Thanks.

SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER SYSTEM

The Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS) is available as a factory-installed option on this vehicle. Vehicles

equipped with the Vehicle Theft Alarm (VTA) are also equipped with SKIS. The SKIS provides passive vehicle protection

by preventing the engine from operating unless a valid electronically encoded key is detected in the ignition

lock cylinder.

The SKIS includes the following major components, which are described in further detail elsewhere in this service

information:

SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER SYSTEM

The Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS) is designed to provide passive protection against unauthorized vehicle

use by disabling the engine after about two seconds of running, whenever any method other than a valid Sentry Key

is used to start the vehicle. The SKIS is considered a passive protection system because it is always active when

the ignition system is energized and does not require any customer intervention. The SKIS uses Radio Frequency

(RF) communication to obtain confirmation that the key in the ignition switch is a valid key for operating the vehicle.

The microprocessor-based SKIS hardware and software also uses electronic messages to communicate with other

electronic modules in the vehicle over the Programmable Communications Interface (PCI) data bus. (Refer to 8 -

ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULES/COMMUNICATION - OPERATION).

Pre-programmed Sentry Key transponders are provided with the vehicle from the factory. Each Sentry REmote Entry

Module (SKREEM) will recognize a maximum of eight Sentry Keys. If the customer would like additional keys other

than those provided with the vehicle, they may be purchased from any authorized dealer. These additional keys

must be programmed to the SKREEM in the vehicle in order for the system to recognize them as valid keys. This

can be done by the dealer using a diagnostic scan tool or, if Customer Learn programming is an available SKIS

feature in the market where the vehicle was purchased, the customer can program the additional keys, as long as

at least two valid Sentry Keys are already available. (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL/VEHICLE THEFT SECURITY -

STANDARD PROCEDURE - TRANSPONDER PROGRAMMING).

The SKREEM performs a self-test of the SKIS each time the ignition switch is turned to the ON position, and will

store fault information in the form of a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) if a system malfunction is detected. The SKIS

can be diagnosed, and any stored DTC can be retrieved using a diagnostic scan tool. Refer to the appropriate

diagnostic information



page 68

SENTRY KEY IMMOBILIZER SYSTEM

WARNING: To avoid personal injury or death, on vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the supplemental

restraint system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, airbag, occupant classification system,

seat belt tensioner, impact sensor, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect

and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the system capacitor to discharge

before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the supplemental

restraint system. Failure to take the proper precautions could result in accidental airbag deployment.

The hard wired Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS) components and circuits may be diagnosed and tested using

conventional diagnostic tools and procedures. Refer to the appropriate wiring information. The wiring information

includes wiring diagrams, proper wire and connector repair procedures, details of wire harness routing and retention,

connector pin-out information and location views for the various wire harness connectors, splices and grounds.

However, conventional diagnostic methods may not prove conclusive in the diagnosis of the Sentry Key REmote

Entry Module (SKREEM), the ElectroMechanical Instrument Cluster (EMIC), the Powertrain Control Module (PCM),

the Programmable Communications Interface (PCI) data bus, or the electronic message inputs used to provide the

electronic features of the SKIS. The most reliable, efficient, and accurate means to diagnose the SKREEM, the

EMIC, the PCM, the CAN data bus, and the electronic message inputs for the SKIS requires the use of a diagnostic

scan tool. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic informatio

My 2006 Kia Sedona air bag light is on. Do I need to take it to the dealer to fix? My auto knowledge is limited to oil changes, topping off liquids, and wiper changes.


No, it is not necessary to take your vehicle to the dealer for service and repair of your airbag/Passive Restraint system. Although I will say that if there are any parts required to repair the system, they will have to come from the dealer because the aftermarket simply does not handle parts for the restraint systems on almost all cars - especially a Kia. Check with your favorite shop. They may be willing to tackle this task if their scanners are equipped with the correct software to diagnose your restraint system. Some aftermarket shops will not mess with an airbag system at all. For instance, If you brought it to my shop I would handle it for you, but the shop down the street from me usually refers their airbag problems to my shop.

2004 Avalanche "Service Air Bag


First, please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

I seriously doubt that your problem is being caused by a fuse. Your Passive Restraint System has a problem. This could be caused by a driver's airbag, a passenger airbag, a seat belt pre-tensioner, a contact assembly in the steering column, or any of the crash sensors. To find out what the problem is, you must scan your Passive Restraint (or Airbag) module to retrieve fault codes. The only thing I can tell you for sure without properly diagnosing your vehicle is that your airbag system will not function in the event of a crash. The system is designed to disable itself any time the warning light is illuminated. This is to prevent accidental deployment of the airbags due to a malfunction in the system.

My SRS light is on? what does this mean?


SRS is for "Supplemental Restraint System". This includes airbags and any other passive restraint device like a seat belt pre-tensioner. It is trying to tell you that your restraints will not function properly in the event of a collision.

Where is the switch to disable the passenger airbag on a 2003 ford taurus


Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Depowering and Repowering

Depowering Procedure

WARNING: Always wear safety glasses when repairing an air bag supplemental

restraint system (SF3) vehicle and when handling an air bag module. This will reduce

the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment.

WARNING: Never probe the connectors on the airbag module. Doing so can result in

air bag deployment, which can result in personal injury.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not use any memory saver

devices.

NOTE: Ifa seat equipped with a seat mounted side airbag and or a safety belt

pretensioner (if equipped) system is being serviced, the supplemental restraint system

(SES) must be depowered.

NOTE: The air bag warning lamp illuminates when the RCM fuse is removed and the

ignition switch is ON. This is normal operation and does not indicate a supplemental

restraint system (SRS) fault.

NOTE: The SRS must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle

to the customer

1. Turn all vehicle accessories OFF.

2. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.

3. At the central junction box (Cm), located below the LH side of the instrument panel,

remove the cover and the restraints control module (RCM) fuse F223 (lOA) from

the CTh. For additional information, refer to the Wiring Diagram Manual.

4. Turn the ignition ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator for at least 30

seconds. The air bag indicator will remain lit continuously (no flashing) if the correct

ROsI fuse has been removed, If the air bag indicator does not remain lit

continuously, remove the correct RCM fuse before proceeding

5. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.

6. WARNING: To avoid accidental deployment and possible personal injury, the

backup power supply must be depleted before repairing or replacing any front or

side air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) components and before set-ricing,

replacing, adjusting or striking components near the front or side air bag sensors,

such as doors, instrument panel, console, door latches, strikers, seats and hood

latches.

To deplete the backup power supply energy, disconnect the battery ground cable

and wait at least one minute. Be sure to disconnect auxiliary batteries and power

supplies (if equipped).

Disconnect the battery ground cable and wait at least one minute.

Repoweri.ng Procedure

1. WARNING: The restraint system diagnostic tool is for restraint system service

only. Remove from vehicle prior to road use. Failure to remove could result in

injury and possible violation of vehicle safety standards.

Make sure all restraint system diagnostic tool(s) that may have been installed during

the repair have been removed from the vehicle and all SRS components are

connected.

2. Turn the ignition switch from OFF to ON.

3. Install the ROsI fuse F2.23 (lOA) to the DB and install the cover.

4. WARNING: Be sure that nobody is in the vehicle and that there is nothing

blocking or set in front of any air bag module when the battery ground cable is

connected.

Connect the battery ground cable.

5. Prove out the supplemental restraint system (SRS) as follows:

Turn the ignition key from ON to OFF. Wait 10 seconds, then turn the key back to

ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The

air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn

off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SF3) fault is present, the air bag

indicator will:

- failto light.

- remain lit continuously.

- flash.

The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch

has been turned from the OFF to the ON position. This is the time required for the

restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. if the air bag

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 indicator and any SRS fault discovered

must be diagnosed and repaired.

Airbag light is on all the time


There are several malfunctions that will cause the Airbag light to come on. It could be a bad contact assembly in the steering column or it could be a bad connection in a seat belt pre-tensioner assembly or one of several other things. Diagnosis must begin with scanning your Passive Restraint Control Module and retrieving fault codes.

ATTENTION: The Airbag light remaining on while you are driving is a warning to let you know that your restraint system will not function correctly in the event of a collision. This is a serious safety issue and should not be ignored. Remember, you are only as safe as your safety equipment and the other driver's driving - regardless of how good your driving is.

SRS


SRS stand for Supplymentary Restraint System, The purpose of the SRS light on your instrument panel is to alert you of a potential problem with your supplemental restraint system. It should blink seven times when you turn the ignition switch to ON or START and go OFF. A possible fault in the system can lead to any of the following: (a) The light does not come on when you turn the ignition ON. (b) The light stays on after the engine starts. (c) The light comes on while you are driving. Apart from the conventional causes of these faults (faulty airbag system), majority of the light indicator problem has been attributed to ignorance while fixing or repairing mechanical and/or wiring systems within the vehicle. If the SRS indicator light alerts you to a problem, have the supplemental restraint system inspected as soon as possible. If you ignore this indication, the airbags might not inflate when you need them. Likely Causes:
  • Steering wheel modifications
  • Faulty driver/passenger seat sensors for your airbag system (located under the seats)
  • Faulty seat belt mechanism
  • Tampered system components or wiring (e.g battery jumpering)
* Sometimes, a little adjustment of your seat belts and/or seat positions might fix the indicator problem over time (if the sensors are not faulty).
Precautions:
  • Do not modify your steering wheel or any other part of the supplemental restraint system. Modifications could make the system ineffective.
  • Do not tamper with the system's components or wiring. This could cause the airbags to inflate inadvertently, possibly injuring someone very seriously.
  • Tell anyone who works on your vehicle that you have a supplemental restraint system. Failure to follow the procedures and precautions in the official service manual could result in personal injury or damage to the system.
  • If all sensors are ok, the system can be reset using appropriate tools; refer to specially trained technicians.
