good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist

below is the description of the circuit and what it does. from the looks of it, it is a wire harness issue. this needs to be confirmed before assuming anything but from my experience, this is most likely the failure.

Roy

Circuit/System Description

During a frontal crash of sufficient force the inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) will allow current to flow through the deployment loop in order to deploy the steering wheel module. The SDM performs continuous diagnostic tests on the deployment loops to check for proper circuit continuity and for shorts to ground or voltage.

There are 2 shorting bars used within the steering wheel module coil connector which will short together both steering wheel module stage 1 high circuit and steering wheel module stage 1 low circuit and both steering wheel module stage 2 high circuit and steering wheel module stage 2 low circuit when the connector is disconnected. This will help to prevent unwanted deployment of the inflator module during servicing.

Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago
