Some vehicles may exhibit the Airbag Warning Lamp illuminated and Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) B1877 (Driver Pretensioner Circuit Resistance High) and/or B1881 (Passenger Pretensioner Circuit Resistance High), indicating a high resistance in the Safety Belt Pretensioner Circuit. Workshop Manual diagnostic routines may not identify the wiring connector as the cause. This issue may be caused by fretting/oxidation/corrosion in the wiring terminals in connector C3014 on the driver side seat bottom or C303 on the passenger side seat bottom near each safety belt pretensioner assembly.
To service, clean the safety belt pretensioner connector terminals and tape off the wiring to isolate the harness connector and terminals from stress and vibration. Even if a DTC is received for only one pretensioner, perform the rerouting and anchoring for both sides. Refer to the following Service Procedure.
