Squib Circuits Activated With Malfunction
For a while my Air Bag light has been coming on randomly and the jeep will chime at me. So a good buddy of mine plugged in his Snap-On "Solus" scan tool and it came out with this:
DRIVER SQUIB #1 CIRCUIT OPEN

we both looked at each other and said "what the heck does 'SQUIB' mean?"

We didn't have the time to start checkin every sensor on the driver's side, so I wrote it down and I'll have to work on it a bit later.

Explanation:
Tradução baseada nas seguintes informações:

"An Airbag deploys when deployment conditions are met as determined by the Airbag Control Unit, usually located near the center of the vehicle in order to ensure survivability during a severe crash event.

The wiring from the control unit to the Gas generator contained within the airbag is referred to as the Squib Circuit - the signal path is not simply a piece of wire, rather a fairly complex path through various connectors, the clock spring in the steering wheel in case of the driver airbag, and an airbag sensor to detect malfunction.

In other words, the squib is the 'explosive'; the squib circuit is the wiring and associated components, and the trigger is the airbag control unit."
