hi there,

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech.

bent prongs are not usually an issue, as long as they are bent back to proper position and did not do any damage to any modules.

usually a fuse would blow first.

have you bent them back to as straight as possible? and seen if this fixed your issue?

no i have not bent them back.
Expert:  camerontech replied 1 year ago.

i would not not be too concerned about bending them back. I have done it myself a few times over the years by accident

. i would pull the airbag fuses first though, than get them back to original position as possible. plug it in and out a few times to make sure they are inserting correctly. than when you know they are fully inserted, reinistall the airbag fuses and clear the codes.

hopefully this has solved your original issue
