CODE NO. B1C2C Right side-airbag module (squib) system (shorted to squib circuit power supply)













caution If the diagnosis code B1C2C is set to SRS-ECU, be sure to diagnose the CAN bus line.

OPERATION


In case of side collision, when the impact exceeding the threshold is applied to the vehicle, and when the impact is simultaneously detected (turned ON) by the side impact sensor installed to the lower part of centre pillar as well as by the side-airbag safing G-sensor in SRS-ECU, the electric current is supplied from SRS-ECU to the side-airbag module (squib) of impacted side.

TROUBLE JUDGMENT


The code is set when the input terminal of SRS-ECU side-airbag module (squib) is shorted to power supply.

PROBABLE CAUSES



  • Damaged wiring harness and connectors
  • side-airbag module (squib) harness shorted to power supply
  • Malfunction of SRS-ECU

DIAGNOSIS PROCEDURE


STEP 1. M.U.T.-III CAN bus diagnostics.


Use M.U.T.-III to diagnose the CAN bus lines.

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 2.
Repair the CAN bus line (Refer to GROUP 54C - Troubleshooting ).

STEP 2. Check whether the diagnosis code is reset.


(1)Connect the negative battery terminal.
(2)After erasing the diagnosis code memory, check the diagnosis code again.
(3)Disconnect the negative battery terminal.

Q. Is the diagnosis code No. B1C2C set?

Go to Step 3.
Intermittent malfunction (Refer to GROUP 00 - How to Use Troubleshooting/Inspection Service Points - How to Cope with Intermittent Malfunction ).

STEP 3. 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)Disconnect the D-32 side-airbag module connector.

(3)Connect special tool dummy resistor (MB991865) to special tool resistor harness (MB991866).
(4)
caution Do not insert a probe directly into the terminal from the connector front side as the connector contact pressure may be weakened.
Insert the resistor harness probe from the back of D-32 harness side connector.
(5)Connect the negative battery terminal.
(6)After erasing the diagnosis code memory, check the diagnosis code again.
(7)Disconnect the negative battery terminal.

Q. Is the diagnosis code No. B1C2C set?

Go to Step 4.

Replace the seatback frame assembly (Refer to ).

STEP 4. Voltage measurement at the C-31 SRS-ECU connector.


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

(2)While pushing the part "A" indicated in the figure of the harness side connector, turn the lock lever to the direction of the arrow to release the lock lever, and disconnect the C-31 SRS-ECU connector.
(3)Disconnect the D-32 side-airbag module connector.

(4)
caution The short spring may not be released due to the insufficient insertion, thus insert for 4 mm or more.
Insert a cable tie (width: 3 mm, thickness: 0.5 mm) between the terminals No. 33 and 34, and then release the short spring.
(5)Connect the negative battery terminal.
(6)Ignition switch: ON
(7)Take the measurements below at the C-31 harness side connector.

  • Voltage between terminal No. 33/34 and body earth
OK: 0 V
(8)Disconnect the negative battery terminal.

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 5.

Repair the wiring harness between the C-31 SRS-ECU connector terminal No. 33/34 and the D-32 side-airbag module connector terminal No. 1/2.

STEP 5. Check whether the diagnosis code is reset.


Q. Is the diagnosis code No. B1C2C set?

Replace SRS-ECU (Refer to ).
Intermittent malfunction (Refer to GROUP 00 - How to Use Troubleshooting/Inspection Service Points - How to Cope with Intermittent Malfunction ).
