B1B21 Description


When powered, the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) sends a test current to the squibs to verify the integrity of the squib and the wiring. These circuits are maintained in a floating configuration at the module, (connected to neither power nor ground), as protection against inadvertent deployment. The use of the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Load Tool Adapter provides a test point, as well as a method for opening the shorting bar connections within the harness connector. The ORC sends out a 40 mA diagnostic current on each squib voltage supply circuit at power up and every 500 ms thereafter while the ignition is on.
