Section 1 – Restraints Repair Overview
The first section of this module identifies how to locate basic restraints and airbag/SRS system service information on ServiceExpress. Then basic service precautions, repair guidelines and service parts identification are discussed. Additionally, an overview of how to determine what parts must be replaced and inspected after a restraints or airbag/SRS system deployment is outlined.

Section 2 – Seatbelt & Airbag System Repair
As the student moves through the module, they will begin section two with a closer look at airbag/SRS system self-diagnosis and SRS indicator operation. Operation and post-collision replacement and inspections of seatbelts and tensioners are also covered. Plus, students will learn not-so-obvious repair tips for post-collision restraints system repairs. The last topics include restraints scan tool requirements and software availability, diagnostic trouble code (DTC) structure, and job aids to help with airbag/SRS system troubleshooting.

Section 3 – Occupant Detection Repair
The final section explains the inspections, repairs, and initializations and calibrations required for variations of occupant detection system on Honda and Acura vehicles. Inspections, repairs and calibrations required for subsystems are covered separately, including: Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), Seat Weight Sensor (SWS) system, Driver’s Seat Position Sensor (SPS) system. Students will see how these systems have evolved and changed since their introduction. Interactive exercises allow students to practice items critical to successful restraints and airbag/SRS system repair.
