Working Near Airbag Components

It is generally recommended to disconnect the battery about 30 minutes before working in areas of a vehicle that may be near airbag related components (e.g., inside the console, steering wheel/column, doors, seats). When in doubt, don’t take the risk, take your vehicle to a qualified technician. If you do inadvertently disconnect or disturb part of the airbag system an error code will set off the dash airbag light.
