Airbag System Sensor-Related DTCs – 2019 Subaru Forester & Ascent

NHTSA ID Number: 10160206

Manufacturer Communication Number: 07-149-19

Summary

This Service Information bulletin serves a quick reminder to always perform the Clear Memory function of the Airbag system using the Subaru Select Monitor 4 after replacement of any airbag system sensor. Failure to do so will most likely result in the sensor-related DTC(s) remaining in memory, Airbag warning light illumination and possible unnecessary component replacement. Clearing DTCs after a repair then confirming codes do not return is the most effective method of verifying a proper repair and should always be performed.
