How to install airbag impact sensor

Hey guys I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty Limited with a bag airbag sensor and wiring. I have the new sensor and wiring but am afraid to install this because I don't want the airbag to go off or not work if needed. Does anybody have an opinion on this or know how to install it?

Remove the airbag fuse(SRS fuse) and then disconnect the battery.After that turn on your headlights,they will not turn on but will zap all the stored energy left in the system,let site for about 30mins then swap the sensor.Then hook up the battery and re-install the fuse and go about your way.

Agreed with the above. When i changed out mine i didnt wait 30 mins, more like 5 is enough but depends on how safe you feel you need to be. Also by disconnecting the battery and turning the key forward for a min you discharge the system or turn the lights on as stated.

If your airbag light stays on there is something wrong with the system. At that point best to have someone test it for you. Most body shops that do collision work can do this.
