DTC Troubleshooting: 41-1x

DTC 41-1x (41-10 to 41-19, 41-1A to 41-1F):
No signal from the Left Front Impact Sensor

Special Tools Required
SRS inflator simulator (  07SAZ-TB4011A)
 

SRS simulator lead M (  070AZ-SNA0400)
 


1.Erase the DTC memory.

2.Turn the ignition switch ON (II), and check that the SRS indicator comes on for about 6 seconds and then goes off.

Does the SRS indicator stay on, and is DTC 41-1x indicated?


YES - Go to 3.


NO - Intermittent failure, system is OK at this time. Go to Troubleshooting Intermittent Failures. If another DTC is indicated, go to the DTC Troubleshooting Index.


3.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

4.Disconnect the negative cable from the battery, and wait for 3 minutes.

5.Check the connections between SRS unit connector A (28P) and the SRS unit, between the engine compartment wire harness 2P connector and the left front impact sensor, and at engine compartment wire harness 4P connector.

Are the connections OK?


YES - Go to 6.


NO - Repair the poor connections and retest. If DTC 41-1x is still present, go to 4.

6.Disconnect the engine compartment wire harness 2P connector (A) from the left front impact sensor.

 

7.Disconnect SRS unit connector A (28P) from the SRS unit.

8.Check resistance between the No. 15 and No. 27 terminals of SRS unit connector A (28P). There should be an open circuit or at least 1 MW.

 

Is the resistance as specified?


YES - Go to 9.


NO - Short in the engine compartment wire harness or dashboard wire harness; replace the faulty harness.n

9.Check resistance between the No. 15 terminal of SRS unit connector A (28P) and body ground, and between the No. 27 terminal and body ground. There should be an open circuit or at least 1 MW.

 

Is the resistance as specified?


YES - Go to 10.


NO - Short to ground in the dashboard wire harness or the engine compartment wire harness; replace the faulty harness.n


10.Reconnect the negative cable to the battery.

11.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

12.Check for voltage between the No. 15 terminal of SRS unit connector A (28P) and body ground, and between the No. 27 terminal and body ground. There should be 1 V or less.

 

Is the voltage as specified?


YES - Go to 13.


NO - Short to power in the engine compartment wire harness or the dashboard wire harness; replace the faulty harness.n


13.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

14.Connect the SRS inflator simulator (jumper connector) and simulator lead M to the engine compartment wire harness 2P connector (A).

 

15.Check resistance between the No. 15 and No. 27 terminals of SRS unit connector A (28P). There should be 0-1.0 W.

 

Is the resistance as specified?


YES - Faulty left  front impact sensor or SRS unit; replace the left front impact sensor. If the problem is still present, replace the SRS unit.n


NO - Poor connection at 4P connector, open in engine compartment wire harness, or open in dashboard wire harness. Inspect 4P connector. If it is OK, replace the faulty harness.n
