Demonstrate awareness of the safety aspects of supplemental restraint systems (SRS), electronic brake control systems, and hybrid vehicle high voltage circuits.


Demonstration should include following manufacturer guidelines when working with SRS, electronic brake control systems, and hybrid vehicle high voltage circuits. When working with hybrid vehicles, workers should be able to identify
  • location of the battery
  • physical appearance of the disconnects (small, plastic pieces that fit into the side of a hybrid battery)
  • location of high voltage circuits, according to service materials and manufacturer guidelines
  • specific protective gear and clothing that technicians should wear when working with the service plug (i.e., type 00 insulating/voltage gloves).

Process/Skill Questions

  • Why is it important to follow manufacturer guidelines when disabling an SRS?
  • What could happen if the airbag deploys at the wrong time?
  • What precautions should be taken when handling removed airbags?
  • What are the components of electronic brake control systems?
  • What are the types of electronic brake control systems?
  • How does the wheel speed sensor operate?
  • What color are the high voltage circuits?
  • What are the shock dangers involving electric/hybrid vehicles?
  • What is the electrocution threshold for humans?
