Ford Fusion: Supplemental Restraint System / Pinpoint Test - DTC: H. Diagnosis and Testing

B0050:11, B0050:12, B0050:13 and B0050:1D


Refer to Wiring Diagrams Cell 46 for schematic and connector information.

Normal Operation and Fault Conditions

The RCM monitors the driver seatbelt buckle switch circuits for the following faults:

  • Open circuit
  • Short to voltage
  • Short to ground
  • Current out of range
  • Faulted driver seatbelt buckle switch

If a fault is detected, the RCM stores DTC B0050:11, B0050:12, B0050:13 or B0050:1D in memory and sends a message to the IPC to illuminate the airbag warning indicator.


  DTC Fault Trigger Conditions


  DTC Description Fault Trigger Conditions
B0050:11 Driver Seatbelt Sensor: Circuit Short to Ground A fault is indicated when the RCM senses a short to ground on the driver seatbelt buckle switch.
B0050:12 Driver Seatbelt Sensor: Circuit Short to Battery A fault is indicated when the RCM senses a short to voltage on the driver seatbelt buckle switch.
B0050:13 Driver Seatbelt Sensor: Circuit Open A fault is indicated when the RCM senses an open on either driver seatbelt buckle switch circuit.
B0050:1D Driver Seatbelt Sensor: Circuit Current Out of Range A fault is indicated when the RCM senses current out of an acceptable range between the driver seatbelt buckle switch circuits.

Possible Sources

  • Wiring, terminals or connectors
  • Driver seatbelt buckle
  • RCM

Visual Inspection and Diagnostic Pre-checks

  • Inspect for a damaged driver seatbelt buckle.
  • Inspect for damaged wiring harness(es).
  • Inspect for loose or damaged connectors.

PINPOINT TEST A : B0050:11, B0050:12, B0050:13 AND B0050:1D
Ford Fusion. Pinpoint Test - DTC: H. Diagnosis and Testing  WARNING: Do not handle, move or change the original horizontal mounting position of the Restraints Control Module (RCM) while the Restraints Control Module (RCM) is connected and the ignition switch is ON. Failure to follow this instruction may result in the accidental deployment of the Safety Canopy® and cause serious personal injury or death.
NOTE: Most faults are due to connector and/or wiring concerns. Carry out a thorough inspection and verification before proceeding with the pinpoint test.
NOTE: Only disconnect or reconnect SRS components when instructed to do so within a pinpoint test step. Failure to follow this instruction may result in incorrect diagnosis of the SRS.
NOTE: Always make sure the correct SRS component is being installed. Parts released for other vehicles may not be compatible even if they appear physically similar. Check the part number listed in the Ford parts catalog to make sure the correct component is being installed. If an incorrect SRS component is installed, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) may set.
NOTE: The SRS must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle to the customer.
A1 RETRIEVE RCM (RESTRAINTS CONTROL MODULE) DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES (DTCS)
  • Ford Fusion. Pinpoint Test - DTC: H. Diagnosis and Testing  WARNING: Before beginning any service procedure in this section, refer to Safety Warnings in section 100-00 General Information. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury.
    REFER to: Pyrotechnic Device Health and Safety Precautions (100-00 General Information, Description and Operation).
  • Ignition ON.
  • Using a diagnostic scan tool, perform RCM self-test.

Was DTC B0050:11, B0050:12, B0050:13 or B0050:1D retrieved on-demand during self-test?
Yes This fault cannot be cleared until it is corrected and the DTC is no longer retrieved on-demand during self-test.
For DTC B0050:11 or B0050:1D, GO to A2
For DTC B0050:12, GO to A4
