Chevrolet Captiva Service & Repair Manual: Air Bag System Disarming & Arming

Chevrolet Captiva Service & Repair Manual / Air Bags / Air Bag System Disarming & Arming

The air bag control module maintains a reserved energy supply. The reserved energy supply provides deployment power for air bags if air bag control module loses battery power during a collision. Deployment power is available for as much as 2 minute after disconnecting vehicle power. After disabling air bag system, wait for 2 minute before working on system, to prevent deployment of air bags from reserved energy supply. Servicing air bag system during this period may result in accidental deployment and personal injury.

Disarming

Air Bag Fuse Method

1. Ensure front wheels are in straight ahead position.
2. Place ignition in Off position and remove all fuses supplying power to air bag control module. Air bag control module may have more than one fused power input. Ensure all fuses supplying power to air bag control module are removed to avoid unwanted air bag deployment, personal injury or unneeded air bag system repairs.
3. With all air bag control module fuses removed and ignition switch in On position, air bag warning indicator should illuminate. This is normal operation and does not indicate an air bag system fault.
4. Wait at least 2 minutes before working on system.

Battery Ground Cable Method

1. Ensure front wheels are in straight ahead position.
2. Place ignition switch in Off position.
3. Note radio and engine oil life resets.
4. Disconnect and isolate battery ground cable from battery.
5. Wait at least 2 minutes before starting to work on system.

Arming

Disarming and arming the airbag system in a Chevrolet Captiva (2006-2018) is a critical safety procedure that requires careful attention to detail. To disarm the system, start by turning off the ignition and removing the key. Open the driver's door to access the interior and locate the fuse box, typically found on the driver's side dashboard or under the hood. Identify the fuse or relay labeled "Airbag" or "SRS" and remove it using a fuse puller tool or by carefully pulling it out.

After removing the fuse or relay, wait for at least 10-15 minutes to ensure any residual electrical charge dissipates, which is crucial for safety during service or repair work. Once the work is complete and it's time to arm the airbag system again, reconnect any disconnected components and replace any faulty parts. Insert the fuse or relay back into its original position in the fuse box, close the cover securely, and start the vehicle to check for any airbag warning lights on the instrument cluster. The absence of warning lights indicates that the airbag system is armed and functioning correctly.

It's important to follow these procedures precisely and refer to the vehicle's owner's manual for model-specific instructions, as the process may vary slightly depending on the Captiva's model year (from 2006 to 2018) and configuration. If you're unsure or uncomfortable performing these steps, it's advisable to seek assistance from a certified technician or authorized dealership to ensure the airbag system's safety and proper functioning.
