yes, you have a harness issue between the module and the air bag. it is recommended to replace the harness once the bag is deployed. a short to power is most of the time related to wire harness issues. I would replace that harness.

Hi there. Different expert here.
Impact sensors are basically inertia switches that are partially open by default with a predetermined resistance value. On a crash, the circuit closes and initiates air bag deployment. If the circuit gets opened or grounded at any point, the system will shut down and the warning lamp will come on.
NOTE: To avoid possible liability issues, OEMs as well as insurance companies require new parts be used to repair any SRS system.
