My air bag system light started coming on a while ago. Sometimes it will come on and stay on, other times it will go off after a while. This usually happens when it starts raining out. I did some research online and found there is a typical problem on my vehicle (2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500) where the front air bag sensor has issues. This sensor sits in front of the radiator and is sitting out in the breeze, so no doubt why it would have issues with weather. To verify this was the issue, I put my scan tool on the system and verified this is the issue.
My question is, what is the proper way to prepare your vehicle to do maintenance on the SRS (Supplemental Restraint System)? I can imagine the best way is to disconnect the battery and let it sit, or something, for a period of time ... I just don't want the air bags to blow because I didn't prep correctly. Any referenced advice would be appreciated.
