1.CHECK POOR CONTACT OF CONNECTORS.

Check for poor contact of the connectors between the airbag control module, curtain airbag module LH and the curtain airbag sensor LH.

Is there poor contact?

Replace the airbag rear harness along with body harness.

Diagnostic Chart with Trouble Code > DTC B1838 SHORT IN CURTAIN SHIELD AIRBAG LH SQUIB CIRCUIT (TO +B)">Go to Step 2.

2.CHECK CURTAIN AIRBAG MODULE.

1) Turn the ignition switch to OFF, disconnect the battery ground cable, and wait for 60 seconds or more.

2) Disconnect the connector (AB31), and connect the connector (1N) in test harness N to connector (AB31).

3) Connect the airbag resistor to the connector (2N) of test harness N.

4) Connect the battery ground terminal and turn the ignition switch to ON.

Does the airbag warning light illuminate for six seconds and go off?

Replace the curtain airbag module (LH). Curtain Airbag Module">

Diagnostic Chart with Trouble Code > DTC B1838 SHORT IN CURTAIN SHIELD AIRBAG LH SQUIB CIRCUIT (TO +B)">Go to Step 3.

3.CHECK AIRBAG REAR HARNESS (CURTAIN AIRBAG MODULE HARNESS LH).

1) Turn the ignition switch to OFF, disconnect the battery ground cable, and wait for 60 seconds or more.

2) Disconnect the connector (AB21) from seat belt pretensioner (LH).

3) Disconnect connector (AB19) from side airbag module (LH).

4) Disconnect the airbag resistor from test harness N.

5) Disconnect the connectors (AB6, AB17, AB18) from airbag control module.

6) Connect the connector (1AG) in the test harness AG to the connectors (AB6, AB17, AB18).

7) Connect the battery ground terminal and turn the ignition switch to ON.

8) Measure the voltage between connector (6AG) in the test harness AG and chassis ground.

Connector & terminal

(6AG) No. 1 (+) — Chassis ground (−):

(6AG) No. 3 (+) — Chassis ground (−):

Is the voltage less than 1 V?

Diagnostic Chart with Trouble Code > DTC B1838 SHORT IN CURTAIN SHIELD AIRBAG LH SQUIB CIRCUIT (TO +B)">Go to Step 4.

Replace the airbag rear harness along with body harness.

4.CHECK AIRBAG CONTROL MODULE.

1) Connect all connectors.

2) Clear the memory. Clear Memory Mode">

3) Perform the Inspection Mode. Inspection Mode">

4) Read the DTC. (Current malfunction) Read Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC)">

Is DTC B1838 displayed?

Replace the airbag control module. Airbag Control Module">
