Ford Mustang Service Manual: Deactivation

Deactivation

WARNING: Always wear safety glasses when repairing an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) vehicle and when handling an air bag module. This will reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment.

WARNING: After deployment, the air bag surface can contain deposits of sodium hydroxide, a product of the gas generant combustion that is irritating to the skin. Wash your hands with soap and water afterwards.

WARNING: Never probe the connectors on the air bag module. Doing so can result in air bag deployment, which can result in personal injury.

WARNING: Air bag modules with discolored or damaged trim covers must be installed new, not repainted.

WARNING: The restraint system diagnostic tool is for restraint system service only.

Remove from vehicle prior to road use. Failure to remove could result in injury and possible violation of vehicle safety standards.

Please refer to the appropriate vehicle shop manual to determine location of the front air bag sensors.
