Question about 1995 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

Crash Sensor Right crash sensor bracket has rusted out and is hanging by the wire. Apparently, they are not available anymore. Is there a workaround using a different sensor, or would it be best just to disable the system?

SOURCE: I am changing the motor in my 1999 Jimmy S15, i

It sounds like you got a 2001 motor. The 1999 and 2000 use the one wire knock sensor and screws into the block, the 2001 has the two wires and bolts to the block. I would think that you could use the one wire sensor screwed into the block of the new motor, but I would verify for sure that everything else with the new motor is compatible with the 1999. I would suspect that there may be some other issues of compatibility. I would check with a GMC dealer, but I think you may have the wrong motor.

This is a code 46 LH Crash Sensor - Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly. Often there is a poor contact on one of the wiring connectors. Some of the problems can happen from a poor connection where everything connects under the drivers side seat.

The Supplemental Air Bag Restraint System consists of two basic sub-systems:
  • Driver side air bag module (043B13) and passenger side air bag module (044A74).
  • Electrical system, including RH primary crash front air bag sensor and bracket (14B004) , LH primary crash front air bag sensor and bracket (14B005) , LH kick panel safing rear air bag sensor and bracket (14B007) and air bag diagnostic monitor (14B056) .
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
13 Air Bag or Primary Crash Sensor Circuit Shorted to Ground
  • Inspect air bag sliding contact wiring in steering wheel , driver side air bag module , and passenger side air bag module for damaged, chafed or pinched wires.

    2001 Escort ZX2. Where are the impact sensors loctaed for the front air bags? Also, where is the control module located?


    AIR BAG (SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM) General Information The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) is designed to work in conjunction with the standard three-point safety belts to reduce injury in a head-on collision. WARNING
    The SRS can actually cause physical injury or death if the safety belts are not used, or if the manufacturer's warnings are not followed. The manufacturer's warnings can be found in your owner's manual, or, in some cases, on your sun visors. Depending on your vehicle, the SRS may be comprised of some or all of the following components:
    • Driver's side air bag module
    • Passenger's side air bag module
    • Air bag diagnostic monitor computer
    • Left and right-hand radiator primary crash air bag sensor and bracket
    • Center cowl safing rear air bag sensor and bracket
    • Left-hand kick panel safing rear air bag sensor and brackets
    • Air bag warning indicator
    • Tone generator (internal to the air bag diagnostic monitor)
    • Electrical wiring
    • Air bag Electronic Crash Sensor (ECS)
    The sensors in the car are designed to detect a severe frontal impact. When at least one of the primary crash sensors and the center cowl safing rear air bag sensor close at the same time, electric current flows to the inflator and ignites the chemicals. The chemicals burn rapidly in the metal container. This burning produces nitrogen gas and small amounts of dust, both the gas and dust are cooled and filtered during the air bag(s) inflation. The air bag(s) split the trim covers open while inflating. The air bag(s) then rapidly unfold and inflate in front of the driver or passenger. After the air bag(s) have inflated, the gas escapes through holes in the bag(s) and the they will deflate. prev.gif next.gif

    1997 Escort Sdn., airbag light flashes 4 times


    Pinpoint Test R: Diagnostic Trouble Code 44 — RH Radiator Primary Crash Front Air Bag Sensor Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly Normal Operation
    NOTE: Circuit 618 (BL/W) is grounded to the side of the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor case, and the case is grounded through the bracket to the vehicle at its mounting point.
    The air bag diagnostic monitor (14B056) measures the resistance between pin 20 (circuit 618 [BL/W]) and pin 3 (circuit 57M [BK]), the air bag diagnostic monitor reference ground. If the air bag diagnostic monitor measures a difference of more than 2.0 ohms between pin 20 and pin 3, it will flash diagnostic trouble code (DTC) 44.
    Possible Causes
    High resistance on pin 20 (circuit 618 [BL/W]) to ground can be caused by:
    • A poor connection due to loose mounting, dirt, or corrosion at the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor bracket mounting location.
    • An open or damaged wire in circuit 618 (BL/W) from pin 20 of the air bag diagnostic monitor connector to the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor connector.
    • An open circuit inside the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor.

    My air bag light on my 2000 Ford Econoline van flashes a 19 code. Does anyone know what that means?


    Seems to be a very common problem with Ford. The wiring harness beneath the drivers seat contains the sensors for the airbag system. Go under the drivers seat and secure all the wires and clips. This makes most error lights for the airbags go away. Hope this helps and good luck!
