Installation


Installation
Pressure Side Impact Sensor
1.
Install the new pressure side impact sensor with the screws then connect the pressure side impact sensor connector.

Tightening torque :
3.5 ~ 4.5 N.m (0.36 ~ 0.46 kgf.m, 2.6 ~ 3.3 lb-ft)

   
   
Use the specified screws.
2.
Install the front door trim. (Refer to the Body group- Front door)
3.
Reconnect the battery negative cable.
4.
After installing the pressure side impact sensor, confirm proper system operation:
Turn the ignition switch ON; the SRS indicator light should be turned on for about six seconds and then go off.
   
   
You must comply with the specified tightening torques with the tool specified because Pressure – Side Impact Sensors (P-SIS) may be broken or POP-NUT may be rotated.
Problems may occur in the durability of P-SIS or the impact sensing performance may depreciate if POP-NUT is rotated.
The door module must not be modified because SRSCM judges an impact through the pressure sensor in the door module.
