Lexus NX: Front Airbag Sensor Lost Communication (RH) (B1612,B1613)

Lexus NX Service Manual / Vehicle Interior / Supplemental Restraint Systems / Airbag System / Front Airbag Sensor Lost Communication (RH) (B1612,B1613)

DESCRIPTION

The front airbag sensor RH circuit consists of the airbag ECU assembly and front airbag sensor RH.

The front airbag sensor RH detects impacts to the vehicle and sends signals to the airbag ECU assembly to determine if the airbag should be deployed.

DTC B1612 or B1613 is stored when a malfunction is detected in the front airbag sensor RH circuit.

DTC No.
