(2) Never measure the resistance of the airbag squib. (This may cause the airbag to deploy, which is very dangerous.) (3) Grease should not be applied to the steering wheel pad and the pad should not be cleaned with deter- gents of any kind. (4) Store the steering wheel pad where the ambient temperature remains below 93 ° C (200 ° F), without high humidity and away from electrical noise. (5) When using electric welding, first disconnect the air- bag connector (yellow color and 2 pins) under the steering column near the combination switch con- nector before starting work. (6) When disposing of a vehicle or the steering wheel pad alone, the airbag should be deployed using an SST before disposal (See page RS–11 ). Carry out the operation in a safe place away from electrical noise.

(2) The connectors to the airbag sensor assembly should be connected or disconnected with the sen- sor mounted on the floor. If the connectors are con- nected or disconnected while the airbag sensor as- sembly is not mounted to the floor, it could cause undesired ignition of the supplemental restraint sys- tem. (3) Work must be started after 90 seconds from the time the ignition switch is turned to the ”LOCK” posi- tion and the negative (–) terminal cable is discon- nected from the battery, even if only loosening the set bolts of the airbag sensor assembly. (g) WIRE HARNESS AND CONNECTOR The SRS wire harness is integrated with the cowl wire har- ness assembly and floor wire harness assembly. The wires for the SRS wire harness are encased in a yellow corrugated tube. All the connectors for the system are also a standard yellow color. If the SRS wire harness be-
