Vehicle diagnosis is also important. If the diagnostics show error code b0074 this is definitely a passenger mat error. The b0081 code has several sub codes, and each of them is pointing to a different fault. Generally, with the code b0081 there are only 2 options - either it is a passenger's mat or a damaged SDM module. If the diagnostician suggested that this is a passenger mat error, the emulator will work. In case of SDM error, the emulator will not help - you need to replace the SDM Below are links to a description of each of these errors - b0081 and b0074. Diagnostic codes for all cars from the GM group are the same.

OCS are very expensive sensors integrated in vehicle seats .
Inside the seat, you will find a pressure sensor, and an electronic control unit (ECU).
When someone sits on the seat, the pressure/ occupancy sensor signals the occupant's weight to the ECU.
The ECU then sends that data to the airbag, which has its own control unit.
Based on that information, the vehicle's computer turns the passenger airbag ON or OFF .

Our Airbag360 emulator will only cure / resolve diagnostic fault codes that indicate a passenger occupancy sensor malfunction.
Any other unrelated codes need to be resolved separately.
Airbag360 emulators are equipped with an original manufacturer connector.
Installation can be completed in 3 simple steps.
1. With the ignition turned OFF (disconnecting the battery is not necessary) look under the passenger seat and disconnect the original occupancy sensor connector. (3-pronged)
2. Replace the original sensor plug with the Airbag360 emulator
3. Turn on the ignition and start the vehicle.
In most cases after the installation of our emulator, the SRS warning light will go OFF without having to erase any fault codes.
In some cases it depends on how long the malfunction fault code has been stored and in which memory it was saved to.
