DTC Troubleshooting: 44-1x

DTC 44-1x (44-10 to 44-19, 44-1A to 44-1F):
No Signal from the Right Side Impact Sensor (first) (without side curtain airbags)

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

SRS simulator lead H (  07YAZ-S3A0100)
 


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 44-1x 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. Disconnect the battery negative cable, and wait for 3 minutes.

4.Check the connection between the floor wire harness 2P connector and the right side impact sensor (first).

Is the connection OK?


YES - Go to 5.


NO - Repair the poor connections and retest. If the DTC 44-1x is still present, go to 5.


5.Disconnect both seat belt tensioner 2P connectors.

6.Disconnect the floor wire harness 2P connector (A) from the right side impact sensor (first).

 

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

8.Check resistance between the No. 27 and No. 28 terminals of SRS unit connector B (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 floor wire harness; replace the floor wire harness.n

9.Check resistance between the No. 27 terminal of SRS unit connector B (28P) and body ground, and between the No. 28 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 floor wire harness; replace the floor wire harness.n


10.Reconnect the battery negative cable.

11.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

12.Check for voltage between the No. 27 terminal of SRS unit connector B (28P) and body ground, and between the No. 28 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 floor wire harness; replace the floor wire harness.n


13.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

14.Connect the SRS inflator simulator (jumper connector) and simulator lead H to the floor wire harness 2P connector (A).

 

15.Check resistance between the No. 27 and No. 28 terminals of SRS unit connector B (28P). There should be 1.0 W or less.

 

Is the resistance as specified?


YES - Faulty right side impact sensor (first) or SRS unit; replace the right side impact sensor (first). If the problem is still present, replace the SRS unit.n


NO - Open in the floor wire harness; replace the floor wire harness.n
