    I am not positive but if you could get somebody withe a computer they should be able to test that for you.

    No not yet been standing online for an hour so far to get my 2 nd beach permit
    Got to have priorities

    But i had a guy nj636 try his computer
    And it said it could not communicate with my truck
    But yet i can use the paperclip method and pull all the codes
    What i have figured out is all 5 have the control module as the common denominator
    So for $47 im going for it
    But would like to know if sensors are bad as the 2 side airbag sensors were under
    But they are sealed nice
    All conectors are beautiful
    So who knows

    DO NOT test resistance in the srs system that is connected to a squib or airbag that is what will set air bags off. Ohms are basically tested by sending a voltage from your meter and reading what comes back.

    Hey ryan
    I just sent out the center srs module to be cleared or reset
    They just informed me its all good to go
    And should be here monday
    Should i just plug it in n see what happens
    Or should i test each squib and such as per fsm
    As to not throw another code
    I have inspected all wiring n such
    I see nothing as in major components that got wet as in belt tensioners and such
    Thanks

    If you have check all wires that are related to the codes you have and are all in spec all you can do is plug it in and hope for the best. Do all the female pins look tight free from corrosion? Is this a new or know good center sensor? There is no way to safely test squibs the FSM recommends borrowing know good parts for diag.
