Anyone know how to replace Airbag Controller
 
The guy I bought my Jeep from was waiting on a new airbag controller from the dealer when I bought it. He has since sent me the replacement module and the dealer wants ~$100 to replace it! I know it is under the center console, but really!

Im contemplating replacing it myself. If I just remove the posts from the battery, I should be able to just swap them.

My problem is, what IF it still sets the airbags off! Then im really out some money.

Any Ideas?

I'd spend the $100 bucks and let the dealer do it. For me, anything with the airbag safety system isn't worth a DIY to save money.

the dealer MAY need to clear the code or something........otherwise YES its a snap to get the center console off. but if it needs starscan you will be 'f'ded.

i would pay the dealer...... if it was like a thousand then i would do it and pay the dealer 100 to do the starscan.

Ill just have the swap it out. I don't want to be concerned about a random airbag deployment because I did it wrong! :giveup:

install it, but if it needs to be programmed you will be paying anyway.
