    we actually replaced clock spring with one from a junk yard and the codes came up afterward. Do you think we got a bad clock spring or need to replace the yellow 4-way connector?

You need to replace the SIR COIL

Posted on Nov 13, 2009

  • Kevin Rahme Nov 14, 2009

    the SIR coil has a clear widow you should see a yellow in that window

    when you get a new one they are locked so they can't turn then when you install it it is timed correctly

    check the conector for corrosion

    you said this happened after you put the steering shaft in

    i still think the SIR coil is no good

    hope this helps

You can't just replace parts like that .
DTC B1001 Option Configuration Error
When the ignition is turned ON, the inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) compares the restraints ID that is stored in the SDM to the restraints ID that is stored in the body control module (BCM). The restraints ID that is being compared contains the last four digits of the SDM part number. Then, the SDM compares the VIN that is stored in the SDM to the VIN that is stored in the BCM. For more detailed information concerning the class 2 data lines, refer to Data Link Communications Description and Operation in Computer/Integrating Systems.
If the SDM is replaced you must setup the new SDM part number in the BCM. With a scan tool, select the SIR module setup. Select Setup SDM Part Number in BCM and follow the on-screen instructions. After, you must setup the new SDM. Select Setup New SDM and follow the on-screen instructions.

Why does the air bag light come on


You need to have a repair facility check for codes in the BODY computer to verify, but I believe your CLOCK spring, located in the steering column beneath the steering wheel is bad. This clock spring allows continuity between the air bag and air bag system when the steering wheel is turned. You are experiencing momentary breaks in the circuit when the steering wheel is turning and the body computer is sensing this and is setting off the air bag light and the beeper alarm. A body code will verify this. It is not a major job to replace the clock spring and involves pulling the steering wheel off to access it.

2009 chevy impala left front side deployment loop resistance B0014 above threshold


the following link covers yours reqest The driver frontal loops 1 and 2 are the loops to the steering wheel air bag. The SDM(sensing and diagnostic module for the air bag) is seeing these circuits as open. There is a bullitin for problems with a loose connection for the yellow connector behind the left kick panel(right behind the e brake and hood release). I would remove the kick panel, and disconnect and reconnect the connector a couple times. See if the light goes out. Or wiggle and move the connector with the key on, as the light should go out if it makes good connection. If it does go out you need to replace this connector. Good luck.

On a 3.2 TL Acura, the "SRS" Indicator Light stays on after the engine starts. What codes will be indicated when I try and read the codes?


THE SRS means Air bag sensor and trigger ..

Simply put the SRS light tells you that the sensor cant connect to the trigger of your airbag namely the one locate in the steering wheel. This is beacause of a device known as a clock spring located in the steering. Its moves like a clock and allows the sensor and bag to get connection but sometimes the coil wires get broken.

To fix this take it to a SHOP.
reasons for that.
1.) A DEPLOYED AIR BAG WILL KILL YOU
2.) WITHOUT THE PROPER KNOWLEDGE YOU WILL DEPLOY THE AIR BAG
3.) EQUIPMENT IS EXPENSIVE

the fix involves. (REMOVE BATTERY)
1.) remove the steering wheel using the lock bolt and key
2.) unblot and remove then unlock the clock spring
3.) replace,
4.) recalibrate and reset spring
5.) reset error codes
6.) reassemble
7.) reset error codes.

My problem is SRS light was always on.i remoove the steering wheel before after that when i back the steering wheel SRS light always on. pls help me.


The most common cause of an air bag warning light on your model car is the "clock spring" has failed. A clock spring is available at most national auto parts chain stores and of course any Honda dealer. There is no danger the bag will go off, but it may malfunction in an accident. The clock spring is the enclosed device inside the steering column just below the steering wheel. It is the device that allows one to turn the steering wheel and have a circuit that remains intact to deploy the drivers side air bag (if triggered) regardless of the clocked position of the steering wheel. If you are not comfortable replacing inflatable restraint systems parts, I recommend you go to a qualified independent mechanic in your area. On post-1996 cars and trucks, you should be able to hook up an OBD II scanner and get the fault codes. If you get a code that indicates Driver-Side Air Bag Circuit - High Resistance or Open in Circuit, that code would refer to the clock spring. If you need help with the codes and what they mean, just come back here and we will try our best to help. Good luck and let us know if you have any follow up questions!
