In the affected vehicles, the seatbelt harness connector that connects the Seatbelt Tension Sensor (STS) to the Occupant Classification Sensor Control Module (OCSCM) may not have been correctly wired. The OCSCM senses whether there is an occupant in the front passenger seating position, and the STS senses whether tension on the seatbelt indicates a child restraint is being used in the front passenger seating position. Both sensors provide information to the restraint control module, which informs whether the front passenger airbag should be activated, depending on whether the sensors detect the seat is occupied and/or that an adult passenger occupies it.

Should the STS not have been wired correctly, the front passenger airbag may not be suppressed, and may remain activated, even when a child restraint is placed in the front passenger seat or a small statured adult occupies that seat.

In the event of a crash necessitating the deployment of the front passenger airbag, a child or small stature occupant may be at an increased risk of injury.
