Chevrolet Cruze Repair Manual / Restraints / Inflatable Restraint Module Handling and Scrapping / Deployment Inside Vehicle - Vehicle Scrapping Procedure

Deploy the inflator modules inside of the vehicle when destroying the vehicle or when salvaging the vehicle for parts. This includes, but is not limited to, the following situations:

Warning: Refer to SIR Inflatable Module Deployment Outside Vehicle Warning in the Preface section.

  2. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and remove the ignition key.
  3. Check that all inflator modules which will be deployed are mounted securely.
  4. Remove all loose objects from the front seats.

Warning: A deployed dual stage inflator module will look the same whether one or both stages were used. Always assume a deployed dual stage inflator module has an active stage 2. Improper handling or servicing can activate the inflator module and cause personal injury.

  1. Disconnect the steering wheel module yellow connector (1) from vehicle harness  yellow connector (3).

  16. Strip 13 mm (0.5 in) of insulation from each of the connector wire leads.
  17. Cut two 6.1 m (20 ft) deployment wires from a 0.8 mm (18 gauge) or thicker multi-strand wire. These wires will be used to fabricate the roof rail air bag deployment harness.
  18. Strip 13 mm (0.5 in) of insulation from both ends of the wires.
  19. Twist together one end from each of the wires in order to short the wires.
  20. Twist together one connector wire lead to one deployment wire.
  21. Secure and insulate the connection using electrical tape.
  22. Twist together and tape the remaining connector wire lead to the remaining deployment wire.
  23. Connect the deployment harness to the yellow connector of the roof rail module.
  24. Route the deployment harness out of the driver side of the vehicle.Disconnect the instrument panel module yellow harness connector (1) from
  25. Disconnect the instrument panel module yellow harness connector (1) from the vehicle harness connector (2).

Note: If the vehicle is equipped with dual stage air bags the steering wheel module and instrument panel module will each have 4 wires. Refer to Component Connector End Views for determining high and low circuits.

  1. Cut the yellow harness connector out of the vehicle, leaving at least 16 cm (6 in) of wire at the connector.
  2. Strip 13 mm (0.5 in) of insulation from each of the connector wire leads.
  3. Cut two 6.1 m (20 ft) deployment wires from a 0.8 mm (18 gauge) or thicker multi-strand wire. These wires will be used to fabricate the passenger deployment harness.
  4. Strip 13 mm (0.5 in) of insulation from   both ends of the wires.
  5. Twist together one end from each of the wires in order to short the wires.
  6. Twist together the 2 connector wire leads from the high circuits from both stages of the instrument panel module to one set of deployment wires. Refer to Component Connector End Views in order to determine the correct circuits.
  7. Inspect that the 3-wire connection is secure.
  8. Secure and insulate the 3-wire connection to the deployment harness using electrical tape.
  9. Twist together the 2 connector wire leads from the low circuits from both stages of the instrument panel module to one set of deployment wires. Refer to Component Connector End Views in order to determine the correct circuits.
  10. Inspect that the 3-wire connection is secure.
  11. Secure and insulate the 3-wire connection to the deployment harness using electrical tape.
