If you have gotten a new door and everything else is fine, then I wouldn't worry about it. You can always pull the air bag fuse if you don't want any worries. Otherwise dealer is 5-600 to repair

Does the air bag need to be disconnected when replacing a stearing wheel cruis control switch on a 2001 buick lesabre custom?


Anytime you are working on the steering wheel or steering column, the battery should be disconnected and the power drained from the car.
If a wire is shorted in the air bag circuit the bag could deploy.
Even if the ignition is turned off.
The standard procedure is to leave the door open and disconnect the battery, then wait 5 or 10 min to drain power from the car.

I have all the functions of the a/c and the associated operations of the dashboard doors when selected, except. no heat whatsoever when selected. The heater core is hot when the engine is @ normal temp....


Hi, this problem is caused by failure of the blend door actuator or structural failure of the door itself. First, access the actuator as instructed below. Have someone turn the key on and change the temperature setting while you watch the actuator. If the actuator turns, odds are the door hinge has failed. In this case, the heater box must be removed from the truck and split open to repair the door.
If the actuator does not move, it may have failed. Remove the actuator and check it for stripped gears or plug it back in and see if it will turn at all when the temperature control is changed. You might also want to check for voltage at the connector before buying a new actuator. A new actuator is about $40.


  1. Disarm the air bag system as explained below.
  2. Open the glove compartment to access the passenger air bag module bolts.

  3. Disconnect the passenger air bag module electrical connector
  4. Remove the two passenger air bag retaining bolts.
  5. Disconnect the passenger air bag module electrical connector.
  6. Placing one hand in the glove compartment, push the passenger air bag module out and remove it.
    WARNING Do not handle the passenger air bag module by grabbing the edges of the deployment doors.
  7. Remove the defroster opening grill.

  2. Detach and position the RH demister hose aside.
  3. On vehicles with anti-theft/keyless entry, remove the screws and position the anti-theft/keyless entry module aside.
  4. Working through the opening near the RH defroster nozzle, remove the screw.
  5. Disconnect the electrical connector.
  6. Remove the screws and the temperature blend door actuator.
  7. To install, reverse the removal procedure. Tighten the air bag module bolts to 71 inch lbs. (8 Nm).

Disarming the Airbag System

  1. Turn all vehicle accessories OFF.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.
  3. At the smart junction box (SJB), located below the RH side of the instrument panel, remove the RH lower cowl trim panel and remove the restraints control module (RCM) fuse from the SJB. For additional information, refer to the Owner-s 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 RCM 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 OFF.
    CAUTION 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 servicing, replacing, adjusting or striking components near the front or side air bag sensors or RCM, such as doors, instrument panel, console, door latches, strikers, seats and hood latches.
  6. 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).
  7. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301) and wait at least one minute.

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.

Air bags will most of the time don't deploy on side impacts, only on frontal impacts they mostly are made to deploy since that's the direction of the car on to which most of the accident will occur. The air bags are just a supplementary device and not a restraint like the seat belt that is use to keep you in your car.

Air bag light stays solid for 98 maxima.


Try resetting the air bag warning light...

1. Turn on the ignition with the driver's door open;
2. Quickly flick the driver's door switch 7 times.

This will clear the warning. See if that makes the light behave. If not, you have invested about a minute of your time.

Where are the airbag sensors on a 2002 Malibu? Daughter ran off road, hit ditch & did damage to right front from headlight down....both airbags deployed...is that normal?


Hi, the impact sensors for the air bags are usually located between the headlights more or less at the lowest point of the headlights. It is possible that the air bags will deploy as the impact sensors work with vibration. If the vibration is big enough to activate the sensor the air bags will deploy.

02 330i drivers door airbag deployed, dealer saying it needs a new door panel,I disagree, looks like the panel is fine & can be used after a new air bag is set in. Any advice here?


the door panel needs to be replaced to correctly fix it. I guess you could go and glue the door panel back together. The dealership is going to put the vehicle back into factory condition. Usually when side air bags blow, the way the door panel is meant to tear it would make sense just to glue it back together as long as the leather doesn't tear
