Expert:  Boxer54 replied 1 year ago.

Just to rule out some things, Has this vehicle been in an accident? Has any recent work been done to this vehicle? Do you have access to a scan tool to retrieve/clear the codes as we diagnose this issue?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
NEVER IN AN ACCIDENT,NO WORK HAS BEEN DONE TOO VEHICLE,MY FRIEND USED THE INNOVA SCAN TOOL AND GOT THE CODE B1815,
Expert:  Boxer54 replied 1 year ago.

Heres where we need to go with this. The code is for a short circuit in the passenger airbag circuit. So, we need to clear the codes, turn off the key, remove the glove box and disconnect the passenger side airbag, Turn on the key, clear the codes again, then see what codes we get coming up with the airbag disconnected.

OK I'LL DO THAT TOMORROW AND GET BACK TOO YOU

MY FRIEND THOUGH IT WAS THE AIR BAG IN THE PASSENGER SEAT,I'M HAPPY IT'S NOT THE SEAT
Expert:  Boxer54 replied 1 year ago.

The code says 'front passenger airbag'in multiple places in the flow chart. I thought the same thing at first, until I looked at the whole flowchart.

THANK YOU I'LL GET YOU MORE INFO TOMORROW,I KNOW THEY HAD A TSB ON THE DASH MELTING AND DISTORTION I DO SEE THAT ON THE PASSENGER SIDE DO YOU THINK THAT DAMAGED THE AIRBAG??

I KNOW THEY HAVE A TSB ON DASHBOARD MELTING AND I DO SEE THAT ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE DASHBOARD,COULD THAT RUIN THE AIR BAG
Expert:  Boxer54 replied 1 year ago.

Due to the design, the dash soft and sticky will not affect the airbag.
