3 and 4 means passenger side pre tensioner slash retractor. Open or high resistance.

Sadly, forum rules prevent me from giving more info, and I appove of this, as this sort of code needs a resistance based diag tool and giving this type of info out to some ppl may equal damage to self.

But rest assured, usually it is the retractor, so a safe bet with no testing is, disconnect neg lead off battery, wait a few minutes, then replace the seat belt pre tenssioner on side affected.

:cool: :bat:

See chart below for 3 and 4 meaning. ;)Screenshot (43).png

Nick sent you a Pm.
Sadly, I did not see any PM.

Just an alert that carl like my post. Which is strange cuz usually ppl dont like my posts. :cool:

Imagine this, I tried root beer with alcohol in it. Not good. Avoid at all costs. The sugar alcohol headache the next day is excruciating.

Thanks will give it a try. Is getting a junkyard unit advisable?
what should I ask them to ensure it will work& not set the airbag light on?
Thank you
