Airbag Signal Signal Plausibility Failure

DCM (telematics transceiver) detects an error in signals from airbag sensor assembly when engine switch is on (IG).

  • Airbag system
  • Harness or connector
  • Airbag sensor assembly
  • DCM (telematics transceiver)

WIRING DIAGRAM

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • The vehicle is equipped with an SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) which includes components such as airbags. Before servicing (including removal or installation of parts), be sure to read the Precaution in the SRS.

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK DTC (AIRBAG SYSTEM)

(a) Turn the engine switch off.

(b) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(c) Turn the engine switch on (IG) and wait for 10 seconds or more.

(d) Turn the Techstream on.

(e) Clear the DTCs.

Body Electrical > SRS Airbag > Clear DTCs

(f) Check for DTCs and check that no DTCs are output.

Body Electrical > SRS Airbag > Trouble Codes

OK:

No DTCs are output.

NG

GO TO AIRBAG SYSTEM

OK

2.

CHECK DTC

(a) Turn the engine switch off.

(b) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(c) Turn the engine switch on (IG) and wait for 10 seconds or more.

(d) Turn the Techstream on.

(e) Clear the DTCs.

Body Electrical > Telematics > Clear DTCs

(f) Check for DTCs and check that no DTCs are output.

Body Electrical > Telematics > Trouble Codes

OK:

No DTCs are output.

OK

Component with harness connected

(DCM (Telematics Transceiver))

(b) Check the input waveform.

(1) Check the signal waveform according to the condition(s) in the table below. (Check the waveform from the back of the wire harness connector of the DCM (telematics transceiver) while the airbag sensor assembly connectors are connected.)

Reference Waveform:

PERFORM DCM ACTIVATION

5.

CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (DCM [TELEMATICS TRANSCEIVER] - AIRBAG SENSOR ASSEMBLY)

(a) Disconnect the J157 DCM (telematics transceiver) connector.

(b) Disconnect the J142 airbag sensor assembly connector.

(c) Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

Standard Resistance:

Tester Connection
