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 .
Airbag360 emulators connected in to harness under to passenger seat
stimulates presence of the passenger.
For Safety reasons Airbag360 emulator generated and send the same signal to ECU as occupied seat.
In case of accident the Airbag will deploy even without presence of Passenger
Airbag's are permanently activated
We Advice that rear-facing child seat's not to be transported on front seat in your vehicle when emulator is in use.
Remember even on cars equipped with an OCS, it's always safest to keep small children in the back seat.
If You are not sure about fault codes or its description contact us and we will check & confirm them for You.
Airbag360 emulator will only cure / resolve fault codes that indicate passenger occupancy sensor malfunction.
Any other & not related codes need to be resolved separately.
Airbag360 modules are equipped with original connector ( exact same as the original sensor in Your vehicle )
Step 1. Turn Off ignition - disconnecting battery is not required
Step 2 . Under Passenger seat locate sensor connector.
Step 3 . Instead of original sensor plug in Airba360 bypass emulator
Step 4. Optionally install seat belt simulator.
Step 5 . Turn ON ignition .
Step 6 . If needed reset / erase fault codes .
Reset / erase is standard procedure that sometimes need to be completed after repair and /or changes are applied to the airbag system .
Works as described. Very happy. Thanks
