AIRBAG SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:B1615/14

DTC Code DTC Name
B1615/14 Front Airbag Sensor LH Circuit Malfunction

DESCRIPTION

The front airbag sensor LH circuit consists of the airbag sensor assembly and front airbag sensor LH.

The front airbag sensor LH detects impacts to the vehicle and sends signals to the airbag sensor assembly to determine if the airbag should be deployed.

DTC B1615/14 is stored when a malfunction is detected in the front airbag sensor LH circuit.

DTC Code DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note


  • After turning the ignition switch off, waiting time may be required before disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal. Therefore, make sure to read the disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal notices before proceeding with work Click here.

  • When disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal while performing repairs, some systems need to be initialized after the cable is reconnected Click here.

PROCEDURE


  1. CHECK CONNECTION OF CONNECTORS


    1. Turn the ignition switch off.

    2. Disconnect the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal, and wait for at least 90 seconds.

    3. Check that the connectors are properly connected to the airbag sensor assembly and front airbag sensor LH.

      OK
      The connectors are properly connected.

    NG
    OK
  2. CHECK CONNECTORS


    1. Disconnect the connectors from the airbag sensor assembly and front airbag sensor LH.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    3. Measure the voltage according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard Voltage
      Tester Connection Switch Condition Specified Condition
      A8-2 (+SL) - Body ground Ignition switch ON Below 1 V
      A8-1 (-SL) - Body ground Ignition switch ON Below 1 V
    4. Turn the ignition switch off.

    5. Disconnect the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal, and wait for at least 90 seconds.

    6. Using a service wire, connect terminals 30 (+SL) and 28 (-SL) of connector B.

      Note

      Do not forcibly insert the service wire into the terminals of the connector when connecting a service wire.

    7. Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      A8-2 (+SL) - A8-1 (-SL) Always Below 1 Ω
    8. Disconnect the service wire from connector B.

    9. Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      A8-2 (+SL) - A8-1 (-SL) Always 1 MΩ or higher
      A8-2 (+SL) - Body ground Always 1 MΩ or higher
      A8-1 (-SL) - Body ground Always 1 MΩ or higher

    NG
    OK
  4. CHECK FRONT AIRBAG SENSOR LH


    1. A004OYXE20
      Text in Illustration
      *1 Front Airbag Sensor RH
      *2 Airbag Sensor Assembly

      Connect the connectors to the airbag sensor assembly.

    2. Interchange the front airbag sensor LH with RH and connect the connectors to them.

    3. Connect the cable to the negative (-) battery terminal, and wait for at least 2 seconds.

    4. Turn the ignition switch to ON, and wait for at least 60 seconds.

    5. Clear the DTCs stored in memory Click here.

    6. Turn the ignition switch off.

    7. Turn the ignition switch to ON, and wait for at least 60 seconds.

    8. Check for DTCs Click here.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      DTC B1615/14 is output A
      DTC B1610/13 is output B
      DTC B1610/13 and B1615/14 are not output C

      Tech Tips

      Codes other than DTC B1610/13 and B1615/14 may be output at this time, but they are not related to this check.

    9. Turn the ignition switch off.

    10. Disconnect the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal, and wait for at least 90 seconds.
