B1706 HYUNDAI, KIA: PASSENGER BUCKLE PRETENSIONER RESISTANCE TOO HIGH
Description of DTC code B1706
A pretensioner is designed to allow the safety belts to be more effective by eliminating the belt slack after a collision occurs, or if the system detects excessive tension in the passenger or driver safety belt. The Buckle Pretensioner circuit includes the Supplemental Restraint System Control Module (SRSCM) and two Buckle Pretensioners.
When the resistance of the BUPT launcher exceeds the allowed parameters, the B1706 OBD2 fault code will be set.
