Air Bag Resistance Detonation Pill Low- Airbag Issues

I'm having an issue with my side airbag module (SBSL) stating in INPA that the resistance detonation pill is .80 and it should be higher at a minimum of .84.

I already swapped the aforementioned SBSL module for a new one and programmed and recoded with default settings.

I-Drive states there passenger side safety errors and the airbag light on dash is lit up as well.

I see no issues with the other module in INPA at all.

Not really seeing any other issues that I have found, so I figured it has to be the driver's side SBSL resistance issue?

Voltages and everything look great in INPA except for that driver's side airbag res.

I'm still having the same issue howver.

Is the Driver's side error air bag itself to blame (the actual air bag) itself?

Is it the SIM/SGM module (Main Airbag Gateway)?

I know a few others had this issue, but there was never a definitive answer that I have found.

All my related airbag modules (SBSL, SBSR, SGM, SZL, SFZ, TEFA, TEFB) are stating system time errors.

Any input on this? I'm stumped I guess for now!

Thanks in advance for any input!
