Hello, going to be replacing the entire front end on an 09’ 2.5 and part of that will be moving the airbag sensors from the current rad support to the new one. Obviously I don’t want to set off the airbags. Is disconnecting the battery enough or is their residual power left? At the fire Dept we were always told even the smallest of residual voltage can set off the bags so I want to make sure I do it correctly.
most procedures call for disconnecting the battery and then waiting 10 to 30 minutes after the battery is disconnected. Most airbag connectors have a special plug that shorts the 2 wires together so that there is no accidentally grounding of the connectors. I would disconnect the battery then wait 30 minutes until you disconnect the sensors.
