Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

The front impact sensor is internal to the restraints control module and not serviced separately. Code 35 is for the passenger airbag circuit having too low resistance.

Passenger air bag low resistance can be caused by:

  • a short in the wiring harness.
  • a low resistance in the passenger air bag module.
  • a worn or damaged shorting bar.
  • a worn or damaged connector camming beam (component side).
  • a faulted RCM.
