I recently purchased a 08 DTS from an insurance auction because I thought that was the only way I could afford one as nice as I have. I am rebuilding it to have it inspected and registered in Atlanta GA however I need to have the control module for the seat belts and air bags reset. Also need the clock spring that goes under the steering wheel...do you guys have any insight or direction I could go in to affordably have the control module reset. Thanks in advance guys
Repairs and Inspections Required After a Collision Accident With or Without Air Bag Deployment – Component InspectionsCaution: Proper operation of the SIR sensing system requires that any repairs to the vehicle structure return the vehicle structure to the original production configuration. Not properly repairing the vehicle structure could cause non-deployment in a collision or deployment for conditions less severe than intended.
After a collision, inspect the following components as indicated. If any damage is detected, replace the component. If damage to the mounting points or mounting hardware is detected, repair the component or replace the hardware as needed.
Seats and seat mounting points—Inspect for bending, twisting, buckling, or any other type of damage.
Passenger seat bottom with passenger presence system (PPS)—Check for any dtcs or problems that may cause the PPS not to function properly.
The roof and headliner mounting points.
Frontal Inflator Module DeploymentAfter a collision involving air bag deployment, replace the following components. Important: The front passenger seat is equipped with a PPS, which detects an occupant. If the requirements for disabling the I/P air bag are met then the PPS will communicate with the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) to disable/turn OFF the I/P air bag, even in a accident. For more information on the PPS refer to Supplemental Inflatable Restraint System Description and Operation.
Inflatable restraint I/P module, if deployed and after performing the necessary inspections listed above
Inflatable restraint steering wheel module
Inflatable restraint SDM
Inflatable restraint front end sensor, left/right
Inflatable restraint seat belt pretensioners
Perform additional inspections on the following components.
Steering wheel module coil and the coil wiring pigtail—Inspect for melting, scorching, or other damage due to excessive heat.
Mounting points or mounting hardware for the I/P, steering wheel module, SDM, and pretensioners—Inspect for any damage and repair or replace each component as needed.
