Airbag Data Download Connector

Post by garyfrancis »



Does anyone know how to download my airbag data?

Is there a special connector?

Is there special software?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.

I have no idea what you want to do. Never heard of such a thing.

Apparently every airbag after a certain date has a memory of events.
It records speed and gs before deployment.
The accident investigator is trying to download the data.
Manufacturers have different connectors.
We can’t find the one for Goldwing w airbags.

Thanks if you can help.

All Airbag-equipped GL1800's definitely DO have an EDR. This is from the 2007 Airbag Supplement to the owner's manual:
Event Data Recorders
This vehicle is equipped with one or more devices commonly referred to as
event data recorders. These devices record airbag deployment data, and the
failure of any airbag system component. This data belongs to the vehicle owner
and may not be accessed by anyone else except as legally required or with the
permission of the vehicle owner.
The data is accessed using the Data Link Connector located under the seat. It is a non-standard, proprietary connector that requires special software available only to Honda dealers in order to access.

It is NOT a standard OBDII connector like in automobiles, nor does it use the same protocol.

Ok, thank you very much for the information.
That makes sense and good that the data is secured and, hopefully accessible.
I'm contacting my local Honda dealer to see how they might help me.
Thanks!
