Description and Operation
The passenger airbag (PAB) is installed inside the crash pad and protects the front passenger in the event of a frontal crash. The SRS CM determines if and when to deploy the PAB.
Never attempt to measure the circuit resistance of the air bag 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.
