Installation

  1. NOTICE: Inspect the OCS (occupant classification system) bladder, seat cushion pan and support assembly for any foreign objects before installing the OCS (occupant classification system) to the seat cushion pan. Remove any foreign objects. Failure to follow these instructions may result in incorrect operation of the OCS (occupant classification system) and may cause system failure.

    NOTICE: Do not trap the pressure sensor hose incorrectly over the seat's suspension or spring. Route the hose so that it lays in a natural bend, and is not twisted due to being forced into an unnatural position. Failure to follow these instructions may result in component damage and/or system failure.

    To install, reverse the removal procedure.
  1. If required.
    Install a new cushion heater mat.
    Refer to: Seat Heater Mat Installation (501-10A Front Seats, General Procedures).
  1. Bend the OCS sensor bracket tab back.
    Use the General Equipment: Flat Headed Screw Driver
  1. Install the front passenger seat. Do not prove out the SRS at this time.
    Refer to: Front Seat (501-10A Front Seats, Removal and Installation).
  1.   WARNING: Occupant Classification System (OCS) parts are calibrated as an assembly and must only be replaced in the configuration they are sold. Never separate parts of an assembly. Failure to follow this instruction may result in incorrect operation of the OCS and increases the risk of serious personal injury or death in a crash.

      WARNING: Make sure the front passenger seat repair is complete, the seat and all attached components (head restraint, seat side shield, etc.) are correctly assembled, and the seat is correctly installed to the vehicle before using System Reset to rezero the seat weight. Failure to follow these instructions may result in incorrect operation of the occupant classification system (OCS) and increases the risk of serious personal injury or death in a crash.

    NOTICE: To prevent system failure, take the following precautions before carrying out the OCS (occupant classification system) reset.

    • Make sure the voltage to the OCSM is greater than 8 volts and less than 18 volts.
    • Make sure the OCS is not below 6º C (42.8º F) or above 36º C (96.7º F) when initiating the OCS reset process. If the vehicle has been exposed to extreme cold or hot temperatures, the vehicle must be exposed and kept at a temperature between 6º C (42.8º F) to 36º C (96.7º F) for a minimum of 30 minutes.
    • Make sure nothing is present on the passenger seat before and during the OCS reset process.
    • Prior to carrying out the OCS reset, make sure a minimum of 8 seconds has elapsed after cycling the ignition switch on.
    Using a diagnostic scan tool, carry out the OCS reset. Cycle the ignition switch after the OCS reset.
  1. If the first system reset attempt was successful, proceed to prove out the SRS.
  1. If the first system reset attempt was not successful, carry out a thorough visual inspection of the OCS connector and wiring for damage, pressure sensor hose for kinks and or damage, and seat-related wiring harness and body wiring harness terminals and connectors for damage. Repair any concerns found and proceed to the next step.
  1. Carry out a second OCS reset. Cycle the ignition switch after the OCS reset. If the second attempt is unsuccessful, install a new OCS service kit.
  1. Prove out the SRS. Verify all airbags are installed and connected and the ignition is OFF. Wait 10 seconds then turn the ignition ON and monitor the airbag warning indicator. The airbag warning indicator illuminates continuously for approximately 6 seconds and turns off. Continue to monitor the airbag warning indicator for approximately 30 seconds, as this is the time required for the RCM to complete testing of the SRS.
    • If a SRS fault is present, the airbag warning indicator either fails to light, remains lit continuously or flashes. The flashing may not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition has been turned from OFF to ON. If this occurs, diagnose and repair any SRS faults before proceeding with other repairs.
    • If, after the ignition has been turned on for 30 seconds, the airbag warning indicator remains unlit with no chime or SRS message displayed in the message center, no SRS fault is present.
    • If the airbag warning indicator is inoperative and a SRS fault exists, a chime sounds in a pattern of 5 sets of 5 beeps or a message displays in the message center. If this occurs, diagnose and repair the airbag warning indicator and any SRS faults before proceeding with other repairs.
  1. Using a diagnostic scan tool, clear all Continuous Memory Diagnostic Trouble Codes (CMDTCs) from all modules.
