B1432 – Side-airbag module (LH) (squib) system (short-circuited to the earth) MMC Colt


  • The SRS-ECU judges how severe a collision is by detecting signals from the left and right side impact sensors. If the impact is over a predetermined level, the SRS-ECU sends an ignition signal. At this time, if the side-airbag safing G-sensor is on, the SRS side-airbag will inflate.
  • The ignition signal is input to the side-airbag module to inflate the side-airbag.


  • Damaged wiring harnesses or connectors
  • Short to earth in the left hand side-airbag module (squib) harness
  • Malfunction of the SRS-ECU
