Airbag Light On?
diagnostic tool reads “crash data stored”
dealership tells you that you have a bad module
If your vehicle was in an accident and your airbag light is on, you will need to have your airbag module reset. The airbag control module will store crash codes, hard codes, soft codes, latch codes. Dealership or body shops cannot clear these codes with a diagnostic scan tools. Because the unit is locked after an accident. Our technicians fully test your module prior to sending it back to you. Your module is restored to its OEM original factory state.
New Module vs Original Reset Module
It is always best to send your original module to us for reset to avoid additional trip to the dealer for coding. Most of the late model cars will have partial VIN stored in the airbag control module.
When you send the unit to us we will restore it to its factory state, keeping all configuration same.
We will reset your module and your module is new again. The dealer and/or scan tools will not be able to clear hard code due to hardware issues. After you receive the module from us you will not need to take it to the dealer for any additional programming. All computer control modules can be reset, except if they are flood or fire damaged.
Even after small accident hard codes will be stored in the module. You are now able to re-use the same computer control module. Computer control module is also known as “sdm, sensor, computer, derm and brain”.
When you have your original module reset it will save you time and money, because new modules need to be additionally programmed to your vehicle VIN costing you more money at the dealership.
