Description

Installed inside the crash pad, the passenger airbag (PAB) protects the front passenger in the event of a frontal crash. The SRSCM determines if and when to deploy the PAB.

  

Never attempt to measure the circuit resistance of the airbag module (squib) even if you are using the specified tester. If the circuit resistance is measured with a tester, accidental airbag deployment will result in serious personal injury.
