Airbag Control Module Vinyl Cover Installation: If a drink is spilled in the
area of the cupholder on the center console, the liquid may seep through the console
opening for the parking brake lever and drip onto the airbag control module connector
that is located under the center console. If the airbag control module is contaminated, it
will result in airbag warning light illumination. This bulletin provides the procedure to
install a protective cover over the airbag control module wiring connector to protect
the module from unintentional liquid spills.
Side Airbag Wiring Connector Clip Replacement & Wiring Attachment Revision:
A side impact airbag wiring harness is mounted under each front seat. If
that wiring harness experiences movement, possibly caused by contact from materials
placed under the seat, it may result in an electrical resistance that would result
in airbag warning light illumination. This bulletin provides the procedure to replace
the side impact airbag wiring harness connector clips and revised wiring harness
attachments under the driver’s and front passenger’s seats.
NOTE: Before conducting the appropriate repair procedure, verify the vehicle
falls within the production date range as noted above.
