Restraint Control Module (RCM
) does not need replacement after an accident in a 96-07 Taurus. The Radio Control Unit (RCU
) does not need replacement either.
It'd be nice to replace the seat belts, but it isn't 100% necessary, really depends on severity of the accident...I agree it'd be better if you can.
Your car does not have seat belt pretensioners. That came along in 2000.
So at minimum you just need to replace the air bags. Rehook up everything and see how what airbag codes you receive. You may receive some for the crash sensors up front.
