Passenger Instrument Panel Air Bag harness is open or shorted
Passenger Instrument Panel Air Bag circuit poor electrical connection
Faulty Sensing and Diagnostic Module (SDM)
|How to Fix the B0019 Code?
Start by checking the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector's pins.
B0019:01 Passenger Instrument Panel Air Bag Deployment Loop Stage 1 Short to Battery
B0019:02 Passenger Instrument Panel Air Bag Deployment Loop Stage 1 Short to Ground
B0019:04 Passenger Instrument Panel Air Bag Deployment Loop Stage 1 Open
B0019:0D Passenger Instrument Panel Air Bag Deployment Loop Stage 1 High Resistance
B0019:0E Passenger Instrument Panel Air Bag Deployment Loop Stage 1 Low Resistance
|What is the Cost to Diagnose the Code B0019?
The cost to diagnose the B0019 code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair's diagnosis time and labor rates vary by location, vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repair shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.
During a side or frontal crash of sufficient force the inflatable restraint Sensing and Diagnostic Module (SDM) will allow current to flow through the deployment loop in order to deploy an air bag or pretensioner. There are 2 shorting bars that will short together control circuits when the connector is disconnected. This will help to prevent unwanted deployment of the air bag or pretensioner during servicing.
B0019 Code - Passenger Instrument Panel Air Bag Deployment Loop Stage 1
Precautions for SRS “AIR BAG” and “SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONER” Service
Never probe the electrical connectors on air bag, side air curtain modules or seat belts.
Never disassemble or tamper with safety belt buckle/retractor pretensioners, adaptive load limiting retractors, safety belt inflators, or probe the electrical connectors.
Do not use electrical test equipment to check SRS circuits unless instructed to in this Service Manual.
Before servicing the SRS, turn ignition switch OFF, disconnect both battery cables and wait at least 3 minutes. For approximately 3 minutes after the cables are removed,
it is still possible for the air bag and seat belt pre-tensioner to deploy. Therefore, do not work on any SRS connectors or wires until at least 3 minutes have passed.
Failure to follow this instruction may result in the accidental deployment of these modules, which increases the risk of serious personal injury or death.
