SRS Indicator Circuit Troubleshooting

The SRS Indicator Doesn't Come On


1.Turn the ignition switch ON (II), and check to see if the other indicators come on (brake system, etc).

Do the other indicators come on?


YES - Go to 2.


NO - Go to 8.


2.Turn the ignition switch OFF, then disconnect C1 connector (2), and C2 connector (1) from the gauge assembly.

 

3.Check resistance between the No. 3 terminal of C2 connector and body ground. There should be 0-1.0 W.

 

Is the resistance as specified?


YES - Go to 4.

NO - Open in the under-dash fuse/relay box No. 10 (7.5A) fuse line, or open in the YEL wire of dashboard wire harness A. If the under-dash fuse/relay box is OK, replace the faulty harness.n

11.Replace the No. 10 (7.5A) fuse, then check to see if the SRS indicator comes on.

Does the SRS indicator come on?


YES - The system is OK at this time.n


NO - Repair the short to ground in the under-dash fuse/relay box No. 10 (7.5A) fuse line.n
