PASSENGER AIR BAG DEACTIVATION (PAD) SYSTEM CONSTRUCTION/OPERATION


BHE081057030T05

• Consists of the PAD switch, installed on the left side of the dashboard (L.H.D.) or in the console (R.H.D.), the PAD indicator, installed near the center of the dashboard, and the SAS unit.

• With the key inserted, when the PAD switch is turned to the OFF position, electric current A from the SAS unit passes through the PAD switch to ground, thereby forming an off circuit. At the same time, the PAD indicator illuminates and operation (deployment) of the passenger-side air bag module, passenger-side side air bag module, and the passenger-side pre-tensioner seat belt is inhibited.
