B1C2B-13 Right Side Seat Thorax Squib 1 Circuit Low: Circuit Open

Hello,
I have narrowed this down. When I wiggle this connector (yellow one first photo) at the back of the front passenger seat, I can get the light to go on and off. I have checked the contacts and they look fine. I think the issue is an intermittent connection either within the connector or in the wires leading into it. I want to replace the wiring harnesses on both sides of the connector. I am stuck on how to disconnect the connector from the top of the airbag unit on the outside of the seat (second photo). I don’t want to force it and break the airbag unit. Any tips on how to get this loose?

Thank you,
Chris

The orange tab needs to be pulled up and then the connector should wiggle free. The orange piece is a lock tab. It should only raise a little bit, don't try to pull it all the way out.

Either should work. Go for the center inline with the connector, the arms that work it are on the sides. Small flathead screwdrivers are the best thing to do it with.

Thanks Sienile. I found this photo that shows how the orange tab pops up. Now my challenge is finding where to buy the 2 harnesses. My Internet search hasn’t yielded anything. Some close hits on eBay but not the same part. The part number for one of the harnesses is d3cs-51630. I don’t have the other harness part number yet. Are airbag parts typically a dealer item?

Yeah, no one really messes with airbags in the aftermarket. Used parts dealers don't like to mess with them much either. Dealer, a U-Pull-It, Pick-A-Part, Pull-A-Part type junkyard; or a repair are probably your only options.

Since you have it off now, you can take the harness to a shop and see if you can get it repaired. Automotive shops are your best bet, but electronics or appliance repair shops might also be willing to do it. For a proper repair it will need to be soldered and heatshrinked. Make sure that's what they will do. Butt connectors and wire crimps are unacceptable for airbag wiring repairs.
