This article supersedes TSB 07-7-8 to update the vehicle application.
Various 2001-2007 vehicles are equipped with a restraints control module (RCM) that report diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) which provide general fault information. These DTCs require accessing the associated bit-mapped PIDs (fault PIDs) to identify the specific fault. Most 2001-2006 Workshop Manuals (WSM) were written using New Generation STAR Tester (NGS) terminology and navigation which does not translate well when using Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS), Portable Diagnostic Software (PDS) or Worldwide Diagnostic System (WDS).
