SIDE IMPACT SENSOR




  • The side impact sensors are installed to the lower part of the centre pillars on both sides, and the analogue G-sensor is housed in the side impact sensor.
  • The front impact sensor transmits the coded acceleration data to SRS-ECU. Based on the data, SRS-ECU determines the deployment of the side-airbags and curtain air bags, then energises appropriate squib(s).
  • SRS-ECU performs the diagnostics of the side impact sensor internal components. If a malfunction occurs, it sets the diagnosis code.
