1.CHECK POOR CONTACT OF CONNECTORS.

Check for poor contact of the connectors between the airbag control module, curtain airbag module LH and the curtain airbag sensor LH.

Is there poor contact?

Replace the airbag rear harness along with body harness.

Diagnostic Chart with Trouble Code > DTC B1837 SHORT IN CURTAIN AIRBAG LH SQUIB CIRCUIT (TO GROUND)">Go to Step 2.

2.CHECK CURTAIN AIRBAG MODULE.

1) Turn the ignition switch to OFF, disconnect the battery ground cable, and wait for 60 seconds or more.

NOTE:

For HEV model, disconnect the negative terminal from 12 volt auxiliary battery, and disconnect the ground terminal from 12V engine restart battery sensor for 12 volt engine restart battery. NOTE

2) Disconnect the connector (AB31), and connect the connector (1N) in test harness N to connector (AB31).

3) Connect the airbag resistor to the connector (2N) of test harness N.

4) Connect the battery ground terminal and turn the ignition switch to ON.

Does the airbag warning light illuminate for six seconds and go off?

Replace the curtain airbag module (LH). Curtain Airbag Module

Diagnostic Chart with Trouble Code > DTC B1837 SHORT IN CURTAIN AIRBAG LH SQUIB CIRCUIT (TO GROUND)">Go to Step 3.

3.CHECK AIRBAG REAR HARNESS (CURTAIN AIRBAG MODULE HARNESS LH).

1) Turn the ignition switch to OFF, disconnect the battery ground cable, and wait for 60 seconds or more.

NOTE:

For HEV model, disconnect the negative terminal from 12 volt auxiliary battery, and disconnect the ground terminal from 12V engine restart battery sensor for 12 volt engine restart battery. NOTE

2) Disconnect the connector (AB21) from seat belt pretensioner (LH).

3) Disconnect connector (AB19) from side airbag module (LH).

4) Disconnect the airbag resistor from test harness N.

5) Disconnect the connectors (AB6, AB17, AB18) from airbag control module.

6) Connect the connector (1AG) in the test harness AG to the connectors (AB6, AB17, AB18).

NOTE:

Except for XV models, connect test harness AH between the connectors (AB6, AB17, AB18) and (1AG).

7) Measure the resistance between connector (2N) in the test harness N and chassis ground.

Connector & terminal

(2N) No. 1 — Chassis ground:

(2N) No. 2 — Chassis ground:

Is the resistance 1 M? or more?

Diagnostic Chart with Trouble Code > DTC B1837 SHORT IN CURTAIN AIRBAG LH SQUIB CIRCUIT (TO GROUND)">Go to Step 4.

Replace the airbag rear harness along with body harness.

4.CHECK AIRBAG CONTROL MODULE.

1) Connect all connectors.

2) Clear the memory.

3) Perform the Inspection Mode.

4) Read the DTC. (Current malfunction)

Is the same DTC displayed?

Replace the airbag control module. Airbag Control Module

Diagnostic Chart with Trouble Code > DTC B1837 SHORT IN CURTAIN AIRBAG LH SQUIB CIRCUIT (TO GROUND)">Go to Step 5.

5.CHECK FOR ANY OTHER DTC ON DISPLAY.

Is any other DTC displayed?

Check DTC using “List of Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC)”. List of Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC)

Finish the diagnosis.
