Do you have a split bench seat, or do you have bucket seats with a center console?

split bench seat

Thanks for the info. The air bag module is located in the center, below the seat and under the carpet. You have to remove the front seat and pull back the carpet to access the module.

To remove the seats, move the seats all the way forward and remove the bolts at the back, then lift up the rear of the seat and pull back to disengage front bracket.


Pull back carpet to expose the airbag module.

Remove the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) (1) from the inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) wiring harness connector (2).
Push down flex lock button (3) and then move sliding connector locking cover (4) to the open position.


Remove nuts securing module to floor, remove module
