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.
