Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist
you may or may not need the tensioners. when you replace all the parts and re check the system, you need to see if it codes for them
you will need 2 air bags, srs module and re flashing and replacing both crash sensors. thats a start
the control module comes without a program. it must be programmed to your vehicle. the crash sensors are what sets off the air bags. they are in the front of the truck and must be replaced.
yes, correct. there are crash sensors in the front as they are what told the module to deploy the air bags.
I stand corrected. they are part of the module you located. sorry, they list them but the fine print I did not read.

WARNING: THE RESTRAINTS CONTROL MODULE (RCM) ORIENTATION IS CRITICAL FOR CORRECT SYSTEM OPERATION. IF A VEHICLE EQUIPPED WITH AN AIR BAG SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN A COLLISION IN WHICH THE CENTER TUNNEL AREA HAS BEEN DAMAGED, INSPECT THE MOUNTING AND BRACKET FOR DEFORMATION. IF DAMAGED, THE RCM MUST BE REPLACED WHETHER OR NOT THE AIR BAGS HAVE DEPLOYED. IN ADDITION, MAKE SURE THE AREA OF THE RCM MOUNTING IS RESTORED TO ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION.For this vehicle the SRS employs two impact sensors which are integral to the RCM and are not separately serviceable. The RCM is mounted on the center tunnel under the instrument panel. Mounting orientation is critical for correct operation of all impact sensors.
once the bags are deployed, the rcm has to be replaced. it is not able to be re used.

INSPECTION AND REPAIR AFTER SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) DEPLOYMENTWARNING: Remove restraint system diagnostic tools from the vehicle prior to road testing. If tools are not removed, the supplemental restraint system (SRS) device may not deploy in a crash. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury or death in a crash and possibly violate vehicle safety standards.NOTE: After diagnosing or repairing a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), the restraint system diagnostic tools (if required) must be removed before operating the vehicle over the road.NOTE: Deployable devices (such as air bag modules, pretensioners) may deploy alone or in various combinations depending on the impact event.NOTE: Always refer to the appropriate repair procedures prior to carrying out vehicle repairs affecting the SRS and safety belt system.NOTE: The SRS must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle to the customer.All vehicles
When any deployable device or combination of devices have deployed and/or the Restraints Control Module (RCM) has DTC B1231/B1193:00 (Event Threshold Exceeded) in memory, the repair of the vehicle SRS is to include the removal of all deployed devices and the installation of new deployable devices, the removal and installation of new impact sensors and the removal and installation of a new RCM. DTCs must be cleared from all required modules after repairs are carried out.Vehicles with Occupant Classification System (OCS) system
When a vehicle has been involved in a collision and the Occupant Classification System Module (OCSM) has DTC B1231/B1193:00 stored in memory, the repair of the OCS system is to include the following procedures for the specified system:

WARNING: ALL SAFETY BELT ASSEMBLIES INCLUDING RETRACTORS, BUCKLES, FRONT SEAT BELT BUCKLE SUPPORT ASSEMBLIES (SLIDE BAR), SHOULDER BELT HEIGHT ADJUSTERS, IF SO EQUIPPED, CHILD SAFETY SEAT TETHER ATTACHMENTS, AND ATTACHING HARDWARE SHOULD BE INSPECTED AFTER ANY COLLISION. ALL BELT ASSEMBLIES SHOULD BE REPLACED UNLESS A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN FINDS THE ASSEMBLIES SHOW NO DAMAGE AND OPERATE CORRECTLY. BELT ASSEMBLIES NOT IN USE DURING A COLLISION SHOULD ALSO BE INSPECTED AND REPLACED IF EITHER DAMAGE OR IMPROPER OPERATION IS NOTED.NOTE: Safety belt assemblies should be periodically inspected to make sure they have not become damaged and that they remain in correct operating condition, particularly if they have been subjected to severe stress.
chart for codes
yes they do.
the bags are set for an impact at 15 mph.
I would assume that also.
the used module will not work as it is flashed to another vehicle. the bags will work.
flashing is about 100-125. 50-50 chance it will take but in most cases it does not take the flash and you will still be out the money.
