You will also need to replace the SRS control unit. Impact sensor is part of it ,in that year. Have battery disconnected while working on it.-- SRS unit is under center in front of shift console by firewall.
Great thanks! im curious do u think the SRS Unit could have been the result of my airbag going off while i was driving! anyway i will be replacing it and see what happens
