Inflatable Restraint Impact Sensor Replacement Guidelines

The inflatable restraint impact sensor replacement policy requires replacing sensors in the area of the accident damage. The area of accident damage is defined as the portion of the vehicle which is crushed, bent, or damaged due to a collision. An example of this would be a moderate collision where the front of the vehicle impacts a object. If the vehicle has an inflatable restraint impact sensor mounted forward of the radiator, it must be replaced.

Sensor damage which is not visible, such as slight bending of the mounting bracket or cuts in the wire insulation, can cause improper operation of the inflatable restraint impact sensing system. Do not try to determine whether the sensor is undamaged, replace the inflatable restraint impact sensor. Also, if you follow a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) procedure and a malfunctioning sensor is indicated, replace the inflatable restraint impact sensor.
