SRS AIR BAG SPECIAL CONNECTOR






To enhance the system reliability, a connector short circuiting mechanism is integrated in the SRS-ECU connector, air bag module connectors, clock spring connector, and pre-tensioner connectors (black connector "A" shown in the figure).

CONNECTOR SHORT-CIRCUIT MECHANISM




This mechanism prevents the improper deployment of air bag module because of the current application to the squib due to the static electricity when connectors between SRS-ECU and air bag modules (squibs) are disconnected. When the connector is disconnected, the short spring short circuits the (+) and (-) of squibs, and prevents the static electricity from generating the potential difference. This connector mechanism is adopted for the following connectors.
