ambient temperature below 65 °C (150 ° F),
without high humidity and away from
• Never carry seat belt pretensioner by wire or connector of pretensioner. When
placing a live seat belt pretensioner on the
workbench or some place like that, never
put something on seat belt pretensioner.
Otherwise, personal injury may result.
• Never dispose of live (inactivated) seat belt pretensioners (drive and passenger). If
disposal is necessary, be sure to activate
them according to activation procedures
described in “Air Bag (Inflator) Module and
Seat Belt Pretensioner Disposal in Section
8B” before disposal.
• The seat belt pretensioner immediately after activation is very hot. Wait for at least
half an hour to cool it off before
proceeding the work.
• With many service procedures, gloves and safety glasses should be worn to prevent
any possible irritation of the skin or eyes.
• Even when the accident was light enough not to cause air bags to activate, be sure to inspect system
parts and other related parts according to instructions
under “Repair and Inspection Required after Accident
in Section 8B”.
• When servicing parts other than air bag system, if shocks may be applied to air bag system component
parts, remove those parts beforehand.
• When handling the air bag (inflator) modules (driver, passenger, side and curtain), seat belt pretensioners
(driver and passenger), forward sensor, side sensors
or SDM, be careful not to drop it or apply an impact to
it. If an excessive impact was applied, never attempt
disassembly or repair but replace it with a new one.
• When grease, cleaning agent, oil, water, etc. has got onto air bag (inflator) modules (driver, passenger, side
and curtain) or seat belt pretensioners (drive and
passenger), wipe off immediately with a dry cloth.
• Air bag wire harness is included in floor and instrument panel wire harnesses. Air bag wire
harness branched off from floor and instrument panel
wire harnesses can be identifie d easily as it is covered
with a yellow protection tube and it has yellow
connectors. Be very ca reful when handling it.
• When an open in air bag wire harness, damaged wire harness, connector or terminal is found, replace wire
harness, connectors and terminals as an assembly.
• Do not apply power to the air bag system unless all components are connected or a diagnostic flow
requests it, as this will set a DTC.
• Never use air bag system component parts from another vehicle.
• When using electric welding, be sure to disconnect all air bag (inflator) module connectors and pretensioner
connectors from air bag wire harness respectively.
• Never expose air bag system component parts directly to hot air (drying or baking the vehicle after

damage and weakening of the metal.
Electrical Circuit Inspection ProcedureS7RS0B0006001
While there are various electrical circuit inspection
methods, described here is a general method to check
its open and short circuit by using an ohmmeter and a
Open Circuit Check
Possible causes for the open circuit are as follows. As
the cause is in the connector or terminal in many cases,
they need to be checked particularly carefully.
• Loose connection of connector
• Poor contact of terminal (due to dirt, corrosion or rust
on it, poor contact tension, entry of foreign object etc.)
• Wire harness being open
When checking system circuits including an electronic
control unit such as ECM, TCM, ABS control module,
etc., it is important to perfor m careful check, starting with
items which are easier to check.
1) Disconnect negative (–) cable from battery
2) Check each connector at both ends of the circuit being checked for loose connection. Also check lock
condition of connector if equipped with connector
lock. 3) Using a test male terminal
, check both terminals of
the circuit being checked for contact tension of its
female terminal. Check each terminal visually for
poor contact (possibly caused by dirt, corrosion, rust
entry of foreign object, etc.). At the same time, check
to make sure that each te rminal is locked in the

4) Using continuity check or voltage check the following procedure, check the wire harness for open circuit
and poor connection with its terminals. Locate
abnormality, if any.
Continuity Check 1) Measure resistance between connector terminals at both ends of the circuit being checked (between “A-
1” and “C-1” in the figure). If no continuity is indicated
(infinity or over limit), that means that the circuit is
open between terminals “A-1” and “C-1”.
2) Disconnect the connector included in the circuit (connector-B in the figure) and measure resistance
between terminals “A-1” and “B-1”.
If no continuity is indica ted, that means that the
circuit is open between terminals “A-1” and “B-1”. If
continuity is indicated, there is an open circuit
between terminals “B-1” and “C-1” or an abnormality
in connector-B. Voltage Check
If voltage is supplied to the circuit being checked, voltage
check can be used as circuit check.
1) With all connectors connected and voltage applied to the circuit being checked, measure voltage between
each terminal and body ground.
a) If measurements were taken as shown in the figure and results were as listed in the following,
it means that the circuit is open between
terminals “B-1” and “A-1”.
“C-1” and body ground: Approx. 5 V
“B-1” and body ground: Approx. 5 V
“A-1” and body ground: 0 V
b) Also, if measured values were as listed in the following, it means that there is a resistance
(abnormality) of such le vel that corresponds to
the voltage drop in the circuit between terminals
“A-1” and “B-1”.
“C-1” and body ground: Approx. 5 V
“B-1” and body ground: Approx. 5 V
“A-1” and body ground: Approx. 3 V

3) Measure resistance between terminal at one end of circuit (“A-1” terminal in the figure) and body ground.
If continuity is indicated, it means that there is a short
to ground between terminals “A-1” and “C-1” of the
circuit. 4) Disconnect the connector included in circuit
(connector-B) and measure resistance between “A-
1” and body ground. If continuity is indicated, it
means that the circuit is shorted to the ground
between terminals “A-1” and “B-1”.
Intermittent and Poor Connection InspectionS7RS0B0006002
Most intermittent are caused by faulty electrical
connections or wiring, although a sticking relay or
solenoid can occasionally be at fault. When checking it
for proper connection, perfor m careful check of suspect
• Poor mating of connector halves, or terminals not fully seated in the connector body (backed out).
• Dirt or corrosion on the terminals. The terminals must be clean and free of any foreign material which could
impede proper terminal contact. However, cleaning
the terminal with a sand paper or the like is prohibited.
• Damaged connector body, exposing the terminals to moisture and dirt, as well as not maintaining proper
terminal orientation with the component or mating

• Improperly formed or damaged terminals.Check each connector terminal in problem circuits
carefully to ensure good contact tension by using the
corresponding mating terminal.
If contact tension is not enough, reform it to increase
contact tension or replace.
• Poor terminal-to -wire connection.
Check each wire harness in problem circuits for poor
connection by shaking it by hand lightly. If any
abnormal condition is found, repair or replace. • Wire insulation which is rubbed through, causing an
intermittent short as the bare area touches other
wiring or parts of the vehicle.
• Wiring broken inside the insulation. This condition
could cause continuity check to show a good circuit,
but if only 1 or 2 strands of a multi-strand-type wire
are intact, resistance could be far too high.
If any abnormality is found, repair or replace.
1. Check contact tension by inserting and removing just once.
2. Check each terminal for bend and proper alignment.

Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine 0A-3 General Information:
There are two kinds of colored wire used in this vehicle. One is single-colored wire and the other is dual-colored
The single-colored wire uses only one color symbol (i.e. “GRN”).
The dual-colored wire uses two color sy mbols (i.e. “GRN/YEL”). The first symbo l represents the base color of the wire
(“GRN” in the figure) and the second symbol represents the color of the stripe (“YEL” in the figure).
Most of the fasteners used for this vehicle are JIS-
defined and ISO-defined metric fasteners. When
replacing any fasteners, it is most important that
replacement fasteners be the correct diameter, thread
pitch and strength.
Even when the nominal diameter (1) of thread
is the same, the thread pitch (2) or the width
across flats (3) may vary between ISO and
JIS. Refer to JIS-TO-ISO Main Fasteners
Comparison Table below for the difference.
Installing a mismatched bolt or nut will cause
damage to the thread.
Before installing, check the thread pitch for
correct matching and then tighten it by hand
temporarily. If it is tight, recheck the thread
JIS-TO-ISO Main Fasteners Comparison Table Fastener Strength Identification
Most commonly used metric fastener strength property
classes are 4T, 6.8, 7T, 8.8 and radial line with the class
identification embossed on the head of each bolt. Some
metric nuts will be marked with punch, 6 or 8 mark
strength identification on the nut face. Figure shows the
different strength markings.
When replacing metric fasteners, be careful to use bolts
and nuts of the same strength or greater than the original
fasteners (the same number marking or higher). It is
likewise important to select replacement fasteners of the
correct diameter and thread
pitch. Correct replacement
bolts and nuts are available through the parts division.
Metric bolts: Identification class numbers or marks
correspond to bolt strength (increasing numbers
represent increasing strength).
