Component and System Index
FRONT AIRBAG SYSTEM
A dual front airbag system (Fig. 1) utilizes driver and passenger airbags. Both the driver and passenger airbags are certified to new federal regulations, which allows them to deploy with less force than prior airbags. The primary occupant restraints in this vehicle are the seat belts, which require active use by the vehicle occupants. The front airbag system is a supplemental passive restraint that was designed and is intended to enhance the protection for the front seat occupants of the vehicle when used in conjunction with the seat belts.
The driver airbag includes an inflatable airbag and an inflator unit behind a trim cover in the hub area of the steering wheel. The passenger airbag includes an inflatable airbag and an inflator unit behind an airbag door in the instrument panel above the glove box.
The dual front airbag system consists of the following components:
² Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
² Airbag indicator lamp.
² Clock Spring
² Driver and passenger airbags (including the airbag
² Wire harness and connections.

Refer to the proper Body Diagnostic Procedures manual to test or diagnose a problem with any component of the front airbag system.
SIDE IMPACT AIRBAG SYSTEM
The Side Impact Airbag System utilizes two airbags, one mounted to each front seat back frame.
This system is designed to enhance protection of occupants in the event of a side impact collision.
BELT TENSIONER SYSTEM
The seat belt system incorporates Tensioner Modules.
They are integral to the seat belt retractors (Fig. 2) and cannot be serviced. If found defective they must be replaced.
FRONT AIRBAG SYSTEM
The front airbag system electrical circuits are continuously monitored by a microprocessor and software contained within the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC). The ORC also contains impact sensing elements, which are monitored by the ORC to determine when an impact occurs that is severe enough to require front airbag system protection.
When a frontal impact is severe enough, the ORC initiates the inflator units of both front airbags to deploy.
