A B1941 code means that the vehicle’s onboard diagnostic system has detected a discrepancy in the voltages to two terminals in the airbag circuit, and has registered a trouble code.
### What the B1941 code means Air bag systems are designed to perform self-diagnostics. Voltage at terminal #17 of the diagnostic monitor connector is supposed to stay at 9-11 volts. Circuit #617 is connected to Circuit #624, at the right front impact sensor. If voltage at terminal #2 drops below the voltage at terminal #17 , a B1941 code will be set.
As with many codes, technicians often jump ahead on a B1941 code without doing a proper process of elimination and end up replacing parts unnecessarily.
A B1941 code can result in the airbag not deploying in a collision.
Any airbag-related work might be best left up to a professional. Accidental deployment of the airbag can result in serious injury.
