Can you read the firing circuit impedances using INPA like D4T_POM has shown above?

Once you know if the circuit is too high or too low you can fix it by adding resistors in series or parallel.

I helped D4T_POM with his a few months back, he dug out a service bulletin regarding the rear door airbags, and the connector between the chassis and door is known to have high resistance issues and the loom is to be replaced.

Of course there are ways around this if you do not wish to retain the airbag functionality, that however is your own decision!
