WIRING DIAGRAM


CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

HINT:

  • Perform the simulation method by selecting check mode (Signal Check) using the Techstream (See page ).
  • After selecting check mode (Signal Check), perform the simulation method by wiggling each connector of the airbag system or driving the vehicle on a city road or rough road (See page
    ).

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK CONNECTORS

(a) Turn the ignition switch off.


(b) Disconnect the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal, and wait for at least 90 seconds.

(c) Check that the connectors are properly connected to the front passenger airbag assembly and center airbag sensor assembly. Also check that the connectors that link the instrument panel wire and instrument panel wire assembly are properly connected.

OK:

The connectors are properly connected.

HINT:

If the connectors are not connected securely, reconnect the connectors and proceed to the next inspection.

(d) Disconnect the connectors from the front passenger airbag assembly and center airbag sensor assembly. Also disconnect the instrument panel wire from the instrument panel wire assembly.

(e) Check that the terminals of the connectors are not damaged.

OK:

The terminals are not deformed or damaged.

(f) Check that the instrument panel wire assembly connector (on the front passenger airbag assembly side) is not damaged.

OK:

The lock button is not disengaged, and the claw of the lock is not deformed or damaged.

(g) Check that the short springs for the instrument panel wire and instrument panel wire assembly with the activation prevention mechanism are not deformed or damaged.

OK:

The short springs are not deformed or damaged.

2.

CHECK FRONT PASSENGER AIRBAG ASSEMBLY (PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG VARIABLE VENT HOLE SQUIB)

(a) Connect the instrument panel wire to the instrument panel wire assembly and center airbag sensor assembly.


(b) Connect SST (resistance 2.1 Ω) to connector E (green connector).

CAUTION:

Never connect the tester to the front passenger airbag assembly (passenger side airbag variable vent hole squib) for measurement, as this may lead to a serious injury due to airbag deployment.

NOTICE:

  • Do not forcibly insert SST into the terminals of the connector when connecting.
  • Insert SST straight into the terminals of the connector.

SST: 09843-18061

(c) Connect the cable to the negative (-) battery terminal.

(d) Clear the DTCs stored in memory (See page ).


(e) Turn the ignition switch off.

(f) Turn the ignition switch to ON, and wait for at least 60 seconds.

(g) Check for DTCs (See page ).


OK:

DTC B181A, B181B, B181C, B181D or 7A is not output.

HINT:

Codes other than DTCs B181A, B181B, B181C, B181D and 7A may be output at this time, but they are not related to this check.

(h) Turn the ignition switch off.

(i) Disconnect the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal, and wait for at least 90 seconds.

(j) Disconnect SST from connector E.
