Diagnostic Code Check

(b) Using SST, connect terminals Tc and El of the check connector. SST 09843-18020

NOTICE: Never make a mistake with the terminal connection position as this will cause a malfunction.


Read the diagnostic code as indicated by the number of times the airbag warning light blinks.

• Normal code indication

The light will blink 2 times per second.

• Malfunction code indication

In the event of a malfunction, the light will blink.

The first number of the code No. will equal the first digit of a

2-digit diagnostic code, and after a 1.5 second pause, the 2nd number of the code No. will equal the 2nd digit. If there are two or more codes, there will be a 2.5 second pause between each.

After all the codes have been output, there will be a 4.0 second pause and they will all be repeated.


• In the event of a number of trouble codes, indication will begin from the smaller numbered code to the larger.

• If a diagnostic code is not output or is continuously output, proceed to the Te terminal circuit inspection on page AB-77.
