The has been little to no success reported from anyone using the Airbag 360 module.Took the passenger up and installed AB 360 today.
Now have the following.
Both lights on and air bag warnings ⚠
What do I need to do now to resolve this issue with the system ?
I'm going to guess that in 2018 it was still working, they did the reinforcement, and sent you on your way. This was definitely not GM's finest hour.Yes 2018. Took it to the dealer and they confirmed the seat sensor is faulty. They contacted GM and the response is its out of warranty. They wanted 1,300 to replace the passenger seat pressure sensor. So I purchased AB 360 and installed it. Wrote AB 360 about the issue after installation but not heard back. Sensor emulator should be an easy fix. What am I missing ?
The AirBag360 emulator - if it worked - would tell the system that the seat was occupied, so the airbag is always armed, and the seat belt has to be fastened to avoid the warning light and chime.Does the emulator trick the system into thinking there is a passenger in the seat, or there is no passenger? In older vehicles, the passenger air bag was active all the time.
If you want to activate the passenger air bag 100% of the time, I wonder if you could modify a failed sensor. Maybe it is as simple as cutting the connection near the controller and short two or more connections together.
Here is the passenger-presence conglomerate.
Thank you Walter. In appreciation, when I am out tonight I will have an extra beer, just for you. I will be sure that it is something good.Hi John,
After the reprogramming of the SDM by Airbag24 there is no longer an (acoustic) seat belt warning for the passenger.
Thanks John, Believe it was the reinforcement tape. Note: that after installing the 360 the passenger seat air bag shows both panel lights On and Off illuminated. The drivers panel still show the Airbag red light on and the written alarm indication is on too. I can not understand why this would be so complex, Like what is the output type from the seat pressure sensor unit, One would suppose its either on or off but must be more complex. The engineering must be mandated by the our federal government to make it not easy or impossible to bypass the seat pressure sensor. Has anyone successfully installed an Airbag 360 ???I'm going to guess that in 2018 it was still working, they did the reinforcement, and sent you on your way. This was definitely not GM's finest hour.
What you are missing is that it isn't that easy, and Airbag360 apparently hasn't figured it out. They have been really successful with a lot of other platforms, but for some reason can't get ours right.
For the benefit of our newer members, would you care to explain how long you have been working on this little project?As a side note, I am close to having a functional emulator, and currently have two of them being tested in cars. It still needs more testing, then the distibution has to be worked out, so don't hold your breath for it.
We started looking at this in earnest about 5 years ago, at the same time that RoboTech was pushing NHTSA for a recall. If anyone is truly interested they can go back and read through some of the early discussions about the technology, and be amused at how little we actually knew then.For the benefit of our newer members, would you care to explain how long you have been working on this little project?
I sometimes think people don't understand (or comprehend) how complex an issue this is, and how difficult it is to work around the issues.
Mine apparently broke while being dormant for 3 years. Makes me wonder if it is not really broken but flagged the error during new battery replacement.WE need a fix! My GM sesnsor replacement under warrany - has already broken - with very little useage!!! Driving with the Service Air Bar light on as don't think really broken but don't want to take into GM to get code cleared - so will pull passenger seat shrtly and then determine next step in this crazy sensor issue.
The PPS must be functional for the passenger airbag to operate.I have a question for the sake of my own education alone.
Is the need to repair, replace, or trick the passenger air bag system solely for the purpose of passing state inspections? Or does a failed passenger air bag system affect the drivability of the car in some fashion?
My Sky passenger air bag has always worked so I have no first hand experience in dealing with the problem.
Whle it is the most common failure by far, the PPS is not the only part of the airbag system that can fail. Have you read the code?Mine apparently broke while being dormant for 3 years. Makes me wonder if it is not really broken but flagged the error during new battery replacement.
