Toyota RAV4. Driver side - side airbag sensor circuit malfunction


Description

The side airbag sensor lh consists of part including the diagnostic circuit and the lateral deceleration sensor.

When the center airbag sensor receives signals from the lateral deceleration sensor, it determines whether or not the srs should be activated.

Dtc b1620/21 is set when a malfunction is detected in the side airbag sensor lh circuit.
