Code No.B1442: Curtain air bag module (RH) (squib) system (short-circuited to the earth)














OPERATION




TROUBLE JUDGEMENT




PROBABLE CAUSES



  • Damaged wiring harness and connector
  • Curtain air bag module (squib) harness shorted to earth
  • Malfunction of SRS-ECU

DIAGNOSIS PROCEDURE


STEP 1. Diagnosis check by dummy resistor connection.


(1)Check that the negative battery terminal is disconnected. If the negative battery terminal is connected, disconnect it.

(2)Use the flat-tipped screwdriver to pull out the locking button of C-03 harness side connector to the direction of the arrow. After releasing the lock, disconnect the connector.

(3)Connect the dummy resistor (Special tool: MB991865) to the resistor harness (Special tool: MB991884).
(4)Connect special tool (MB991884) to the C-03 harness side connector.
(5)Connect the negative auxiliary battery terminal.
(6)After erasing the diagnosis code memory, check the diagnosis code again.
(7)Disconnect the negative auxiliary battery terminal.

Q. Is diagnosis code B1442 set?

Go to Step 2

Replace the curtain air bag module (RH) (Refer to ).

STEP 2. Resistance measurement at the B-111 SRS-ECU connector.


(1)Check that the negative auxiliary battery terminal is disconnected. If the negative auxiliary battery terminal is connected, disconnect it.
(2)Disconnect the B-111 SRS-ECU connector.

(3)
danger To release SRS-ECU wiring harness side connector short spring in the following operations, disconnect air bag module connector in advance, and keep the squib circuit shorted.
Use the flat-tipped screwdriver to pull out the locking button of C-03 harness side connector to the direction of the arrow. After releasing the lock, disconnect the connector.

(4)
caution The short spring may not be released due to the insufficient insertion. Therefore, insert the insulator for 4 mm or more.
Insert an insulator (width: 3 mm, thickness: 0.5 mm) such as cable tie between the terminal 55/56 and the short spring, and release the short spring.
(5)
caution Do not insert a test probe into the terminal from its front side directly as the connector contact pressure may be weakened.
Check the continuity between B-111 wiring harness side connector terminal No. 55/56 and body earth.
OK: No continuity

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 3

Repair the harness wires between B-111 SRS-ECU connector (terminal No.55 and 56) and C-03 curtain air bag module (RH) connector (terminal No.2 and 1).

STEP 3. Check whether the diagnosis code is reset.


Q. Is diagnosis code B1442 set?

Replace the SRS-ECU (Refer to ).
An intermittent malfunction is suspected (Refer to GROUP 00, How to Cope with Intermittent Malfunction ).
