Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Front Airbag Sensor LH Circuit Malfunction (B1615/14)

Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual / Supplemental Restraint Systems / Airbag System / Front Airbag Sensor LH Circuit Malfunction (B1615/14)

DESCRIPTION

The front airbag sensor LH consists of parts such as the diagnostic circuit and the frontal detection sensor.

When the airbag sensor assembly receives signals from the frontal deceleration sensor, it determines whether or not the SRS should be activated.

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

DTC No.

CHECK FRONT AIRBAG SENSOR LH

(a) Connect the connectors to the airbag sensor assembly.

(b) Interchange the front airbag sensor RH with the front airbag sensor LH and connect the connectors to them.

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

(d) Turn the ignition switch to ON, and wait for at least 60 seconds.

(e) Clear any DTCs stored in the memory (See page (f) Turn the ignition switch off. ).

(f) Turn the ignition switch off.

(g) Turn the ignition switch to ON, and wait for at least 60 seconds.

(h) Check for DTCs (See page Result ).
