SRS system resistor ohms? 2004 S60 R

Post by Gst2ws6 » Mon Jan 22, 2018 4:14 am

So bought a new to me s60r and the previous owner swapped out the seats tesla model s seats..

Started to investigate.

The stock seat airbags were under the seat along with the stock seat belt buckles. The are plugged in to the volvo.

Does anyone know if they are required to be grounded well? The buckles are attached the the tesla seats and to probably not a great ground.

The airbags were flopping around hundreds the seat... I know not safe; hoping to replace with resistors or the correct seats eventually.

Here is the read out from vida... Looks like my clock spring needs attention? Or just a alignment?

And to settle curiosity, here are the seats:

Thanks so much for any help

The airbags are isolated completely on both wires but the chassis of seat is grounded for static protection safeguard. If the pieces are attached to the cr chassis (metal) then you'd have replicated the original mounting safeguards for that purpose.

Currently the airbags are just laying on top of the carper under the seat and plugged into the car's harness. They are not in anyway mounted or "installed". I was concerned that they, themselves needed to be grounded; so thank you for clearing that up.

I'm hopping to replace them with a resistor of the correct OHMS until i can locate replacement seats out of a matching s60r/v70r.
