Technical Service Bulletin # 17-16-12
Bulletin Description: If you encounter a customer complaint that the Air Bag Warning Light was illuminated and the Passenger Air Bag Indicator was OFF when the passenger seat was occupied, the Occupant Control Unit may need to be replaced. This bulletin is only applicable if DTC B1650, B1760 and/or B1761 are also stored in memory. A possible occupant action that may have resulted in this condition would be the use of an iPod or cell phone (plugged into the Accessory power outlet) by someone seated in the passenger seat when the ODS is On. Another cause may be a seated passenger touching a metal part of the vehicle that is electrically grounded (i.e. forward/rearward seat adjuster lever) when the ODS is On. The possibility of these conditions affecting the ODS is dependent upon the occupant’s personal capacitance. To reduce the possibility of the condition reoccurring, the Occupant Control Unit logic was modified to be less sensitive under those conditions.
