Airbag Module Crash Data Reset Service Done Right in 24Hours

Francisco bought a 2014 Hyundai Sonata GLS off a car auction copart.com The Hyundai was involved in an accident that resulted the insurance to write it off as totaled and then sold on this auction.

 The Damage

During the crash, which appeared to be a front end collision, both of the front airbags deployed. The driver side and the passenger side. Simultaneously with the airbags deploying, both of the front seat belts fired and locked up as well. The seat belts known as the pretensioner, are equipped with a gas charge that is responsible for going off during a crash.

 Restoring Safety

Francisco replaced both of the front airbags that he purchased at the Hyundai dealer. The Hyundai did however have an airbag light due to crash data being stored in the SRS computer.

This occurs at every crash event. Once a vehicle is involved in a crash, the airbag light will remain on until it is scanned with an OBD Airbag scanner, the codes are obtained, all of the issues are addressed and then the module is flashed. Flashing the module is a procedure where the chip is accessed and programmed to its original factory condition. The chip is known as the eeprom.

Francisco wasn’t fully familiar with the process and got a quote from an airbag specialist that came out and checked out the vehicle. The quote he received was around $450. Outraged by this, Francisco turned to his friend online: Google. He searched for ways to clear the airbag light and stumbled across our website. We offered SRS Airbag Module Reset services at $50. This attracted Francisco and he gave our shop a call.

Why Jumper Cables Are Important

Most often than not, sites about automobiles can be difficult to sort through. There is so much information out there that you don’t understand or don’t need to know in the first place. Well, today we are talking about something that all people need to know about, and that subject matter is on jumper cables. Leon Jumper invented jumper cables in 1863, way before cars were even thought about or put into production. He was trying to restart batteries for other mechanical devices and his product was successful. Now, these same jumper cables are used today to help people get restarted every day.

First things is first, make sure you own jumper cables. Nothing is worse than having no cables available when you need to jump your vehicle. Mostly, jumper cables are a very cheap investment that starts at around $10 a piece. They are a necessary investment that everyone needs. Do not think for a minute that you will be excluded from having your battery work over your entire life. You would be getting lucky, and you wouldn’t be very smart now, would you be?

If you have kids, it is bound to happen that they will leave a car light on inside the vehicle, or leave the door open. When you are running late the next morning, you will not be happy to find a dead battery and no cables in site, so cover your bases. I’m sure adults wouldn’t do that now would they? Just make sure to shut your door and turn off the car lights. It will save you some time.

If you know how to jumpstart a dead vehicle battery, you will be able to help others in the same situation. This is a great skill to have because you never know when that skill could be used to brighten someone’s day. You can be a blessing in someone else’s life one day and pull over for a few minutes of your time to change the situation completely. You have the power to help others during a vulnerable time in their life. So often, we all see people parked off the side of the road with their hazards on and hood up. Every day people just drive on by, yes, because they are busy, but also because many of them either don’t have jumper cables, don’t know how to jump a car, or both.

People with a dead car battery just have to sit and wait for hours, as professional assistance has to be called. The situation can be a frustrating and miserable experience. This could have all been prevented by knowing the steps yourself and having jumper cables readily available. Even if your car is in fantastic shape, one cold day, and your battery might need a jump.

How To Jumpstart A Car

Before you can help someone else or yourself with a dead car battery, you will need to know how to jumpstart it.
First, hook the cables up properly. Attach one red clamp to the dead battery positive terminal and the other needs to be hooked to the donor car positive terminal.

Next, add the black clamp to the negative terminal of the donor battery and the other clamp to a bolt on the engine block. Do not attach the black clamp to the dead battery terminal. This will lead to hydrogen gas connecting with electricity, which could lead to a spark or a complete explosion of your vehicle. Now, we do not mean to scare you, but this is serious business. Doing this inappropriately could lead to serious damage of you and/or your vehicle.

After you have connected the jumper cables appropriately, start the donor car and wait about five minutes to charge the dead car battery. After that time, start the dead car and your battery should be up and running again.

Note: you might want to take your battery to get checked after this process because it might actually need to be replaced. The worst experience is when you have jumped your car and go to a different location, shut off your car, and when you come back, the battery is dead again. Don’t let this happen to you.
