Increased use of comfort and safety electronics in modern motor vehicles also requires the greatest attention to be paid during bodywork. Overvoltages produced during welding and in alignment work during bodyshell rectification may cause electronic systems to be damaged. In particular, the safety instructions for performing welding work on vehicles with airbag systems must be adhered to.

NOTE: After disconnecting the power supply and before performing further work, a wait time of up to 15 minutes must be maintained, depending on the vehicle. Work on airbag systems may only be performed by persons who have a relevant certificate of competence.

Pay attention to the following points:

  • Disconnect the battery negative clamp and cover the battery terminal.
  • Disconnect the electrical connector at the airbag control module.
  • If welding is to be performed directly near a control module, it must be removed beforehand.
  • Never connect the negative cable of the welder near an airbag or a control module.
  • Connect the negative cable of the welder close to the location of the weld.
