How To Reset Your INFINITI Airbag Module
Your vehicle’s airbag is a critical safety feature, and the airbag module guarantees its proper function. If this module fails, your airbag may not deploy in the event of a collision. Luckily, there’s a relatively easy solution to this problem. There are lots of instructions available online for removing the device from your vehicle and resetting it to factory settings! To achieve this, you’ll need the right tools and software. Discover how to reset your INFINITI airbag module.
What Is an Airbag Module?
The airbag module is the system’s motherboard, or ‘brain’, storing all of the data collected after a collision. It has a computer-like memory chip for storing collision data, as well as connections to airbags, impact sensors, seatbelts, and the clockspring. Installing a new unit is costly, thus a complete airbag module reboot is the more cost-effective choice.
When Must an Airbag Module Reset Occur?
Airbags are sometimes deployed in addition to seat belts and tensioners after an accident, causing the airbag light to illuminate. The airbag module must then be reset in order to work. This is usually located beneath the driver’s seat.
The fault in the airbag system is discovered using a diagnostic computer. The system’s crash codes and hard drive data are cleared and restored so that it can function normally again. Here at Competition INFINITI, we can help you with resetting your airbag module, as well as replacing your airbag system entirely.
