Installation
Pressure Side Impact Sensor
1.
Install the new pressure side impact sensor with the screws (B) and then connect the pressure side impact sensor connector (A).

Tightening torque :
3.5 ~ 5.7 N.m (0.4 ~ 0.6 kgf.m, 2.6 ~ 4.2 lb-ft)

   
Use specified screws.
2.
Install the front door trim.
(Refer to Body - "Front door trim")
3.
Reconnect the battery negative cable.
4.
After installing the pressure side impact sensor, confirm proper system operation:
Turn the ignition switch ON; the SRS indicator light should be turned on for about six seconds and then go off.
   
Comply with the specified tightening torque in order to prevent Pressure - Side Impact Sensors (P-SIS) from damages and screw prommet from missing.
Problems may arise in the durability of P-SIS or impact sensing performance may decrease if screw grommet is missing.
The door module must not be transformed because the SRSCM defines an impact through the pressure sensor in the door module.
