Third generation YP (2014-2023) / Kia Sedona YP Service Manual / Restraint / General Safety Information and Caution

General Precautions
Please read the following precautions carefully before performing the airbag system service.
Carefully observe the instructions described in this manual as misuse of airbags may result in accidental deployment of airbags, damage or injuries.
Except when performing electrical inspections, always turn the ignition switch OFF and disconnect the negative cable from the battery, and wait at least three minutes before beginning to work.
The contents in the memory are not erased even if the ignition switch is turned OFF or the battery cables are disconnected from the battery.
Use only the replacement parts manufactured to the same standards and quality as the original parts.Do not reuse SRS parts removed from other vehicles. Use only new parts when repairing the SRS.
Do not install used SRS parts from another vehicle. Use only new parts when making SRS repairs.
Carefully inspect any SRS parts before installation. Do not install any parts that show signs of being dropped or improperly handled, such as dents, cracks or deformation.

Before removing any of the SRSCM parts (including the disconnection of the connectors), always disconnect the SRSCM connector.
Airbag Handling and Storage
Do not disassemble the airbags as there are no serviceable parts. Once an airbag has been deployed, it cannot be repaired nor reused.
For temporary storage of the air bag during service, please observe the following precautions:
Store the removed airbag with the pad surface up.
Keep free from any oil, grease, detergent, or water to prevent damage to the airbag assembly.

Store the removed airbag on secure, flat surface away from any high heat source (exceeding 85 C/185 F).
Never perform any electrical inspections, such as measuring resistance, to the airbags.
Do not position yourself in front of the airbag assembly during removal, inspection, or replacement.
Refer to the scrapping procedures for disposal of the damaged airbag.
Be careful not to impact or bump on the SRS unit, the side impact sensors or the front impact sensors whenever the ignition switch is ON. Wait for at least three minutes after the ignition switch is turned OFF before beginning to work.
During installation or replacement, be careful not to bump on the area (by impacting with a wrench, hammer, etc.) around the SRS unit, the side impact sensor and the front impact sensor as any impact on the airbags may accidentally deploy them to cause possible damage or injury.
Replace the front airbag module, SRSCM and FIS after the front airbag is deployed. Replace the airbag wiring if it is damaged. Replace the side airbag module, the curtain airbag module, SRSCM and SIS after the side airbag is deployed. Replace the airbag wiring if it is damaged.
If the airbags or the side airbags were not deployed in a collision, inspect for any damage or deformation on the SRS unit and the side impact sensors. If any damage is found, replace the SRS unit, the front impact sensor and/or the side impact sensors.
Do not disassemble the SRS unit, the front impact sensor or the side impact sensors.
Turn the ignition switch OFF, disconnect the battery negative cable and wait for at least three minutes before beginning to install or replace the SRS unit.
Be sure that the SRS unit, the front impact sensor and side impact sensors are installed securely with mounting bolts.
Be careful not to spill water or oil on the SRS unit, the front impact sensor or the side impact sensors and keep them away from dust.
Store the SRS unit, the front impact sensor and the side impact sensors in a cool (15 ~ 25 C/ 59 ~ 77 F) and dry (30 ~ 80% relative humidity, no moisture) area.
Wiring Precautions
SRS wiring can be identified by special yellow outer covering. Observe the instructions described in this section.
Never attempt to modify, splice or repair SRS wiring. If there is an opening or damage on SRS wiring, replace the harness.

Be sure to install the harness wires so that they are not pinched, or interfering with other parts.

Make sure all SRS ground locations are clean, and grounds are securely fastened for optimum metal-to-metal contact. Poor grounding can cause intermittent problems that are difficult to diagnose.
Precautions for Electrical Inspections
When using electrical test equipment, insert the probe of the tester into the wire side of the connector.
Do not insert the probe of the tester into the terminal side of the connector, and do not tamper with the connector.

Use a u-shaped probe. Do not force the probe into a connector.
Use specified service connectors for troubleshooting.
Using improper tools could cause an error in inspection due to poor metal contact.
Spring-loaded Lock Connector
Some SRS system connectors come with spring-loaded locks.
Airbag Connector
To release the lock, pull the spring-loaded sleeve (A) and the slider (B) while holding the opposite half of the connector.
Pull the connector halves apart. Be sure to pull on the sleeve instead of the connector half.

Hold both connector halves and press firmly until the projection(C) of the sleeve-side connector clicks to lock.
