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 .
Often malfunction of the OCS will trigger B1448 OBS Mat Defective fault code.
Other trouble codes can be triggered such as B1447 B1448 B1449 B1764 B1767
which all call for replacement of the OCS mat sensor.
