I had carpet out as customer said he had put some metal over holes on floor pan in areas so checked closely around the repairs to floor as well.

I wired with connectors on drivers floor color code to color code. I also used connectors to repair passenger seat wiring. Followed wire all the way up to passenger side cab the wires go into a junction block and to a silver module attached to frame right side of cab below glove box. This is as far as I went.

driver side wiring was going to drivers seat potentiometer 4 wires and from passenger seat potensionometer 2 wires.

Ok is it setting the same code? It may have shorted out the pretensioner or blown a fuse. If you have a scan tool to look at the pretensioners, it will show if it is flagging a fault and if it is an open or short circuit and should have the same resistance value for both sides.

My scan tool will not pick up anything for the srs system for some reason assume it is not meant to? I tried a passenger seat protensionometer same thing
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If fuse were would fuse be located? If pretensiomoter what would the ohm resistance value be for a good protentensiometer?
Expert:  HDGENE replied 1 year ago.

Both sides should have the same resistance. The srs fuse is numberF2.22 a 10 amp fuse in the interior fuse panel.Resistance is between 1.7-3.2 ohms
